How to Fish
The Flat Rap swims with a quick, hard-flashing version of the Rapala wounded minnow action at a variety of speeds. It’s weighted to rise slowly on the pause. Use a rip and stop retrieve to get the most out of your Flat Rap. Twitch the rod tip down or to the side to make the lure dart forward with hard flashing swimming action, then let the lure come to a stop. The Flat Rap will stop, wobble and flash its sides a couple of times with a swinging motion, settle with its head slightly up and start to slowly rise toward the surface.
When fishing running water, cast quartering upstream and let the lure float down with the current and reel the line in just fast enough to keep a good contact with the lure. With the rod tip up, twitch the tip to give the lure an attractive rolling body action and make it flash its sides.
Carrying on a tradition that started in 1936, the original “wounded minnow” action is what has made Rapala “The world’s most trusted lure.” Premium Balsa gives them their responsive, life-like action, while the craftsmanship and dedication to excellence makes sure that each and every lure swims like the first.
Classic lures embody the same individuality that Lauri Rapala was hand carving from wood those many years ago. With every Classic lure purchased, you really are buying a part of Rapala history.
Before leaving the factory, each is inspected, hand-tuned and tank-tested for the superior quality these lures are known for. That’s why no matter where you go in the world, big fish eat little fish that swim like a Rapala.
