Mini-Guides.

1. Rapala Mini Fishing Guide.
No Date
Finland/Italy
1 page multi-fold. This guide contains some info on models, a color plate. It also has a few graphs detailing colors to use under different lighting conditions. a graph on what lure/size for species. and a chart showing depths for each lure.
Most of the Info is in a foreign language. It still offers some interesting info. the color plate is very useful, it shows a couple of color patterns that I have never seen before.

2. Rapala Mini Guide. View Cover.
Dated 1987
Finland
1 page multi-fold. It has the very basic lure info. Along with a color plate. It also has a chart showing trolling depths/lure. 1 side of this guide is the species/lure chart. Another interesting Mini-guide

3. Rapala Tacklebox Fishing Guide. View Cover.
A 'How-to' tacklebox reference guide
Dated 1993.
1 page Multi-fold. 1 side has info on, The Rapala cardinal rules, how to tie on a Rapala and how to recognize each Rapala at a glance. The other has info on, how to pick the proper Rapala (species/lure chart), Rapala color selections, the proper colors, how to tune a Rapala and a lure/line depth chart.

4. Rapala Mini guide. View Cover.

1 page multi-fold.Basic Info. Some lure info along with graphs showing Species chart, Lighting chart, knot chart and a color plate. This mini guide is also in a foreign language. The color plate again is very interesting.

5. Rapala by Normark
'Closer to Nature. Closer to people.'

Italy
24 pages including covers. Besides rapala's this guide/catalog has products by other companies.
On the Rapala's, there is 8 pages. these are of, models, lighting guide, a color plate and other basic info. The 3 pages that really interested me are the Model info page (it shows the rapala squid lure), The color plate page (again showing color patterns that are new to me) and a page that describes the Inkoo by Rapala (a spoon that I have never seen before in some very interesting color patterns)

I hope to add some scans of these mini guides.
