Rapala Original Floating 5cm
Rapala Original Floater
The first and still the number one "go-to" lure. Lauri Rapala had no idea the impact his creation would have on the fishing world. Its wounded minnow action is irresistible to fish. Decades after its creation millions of anglers still rely on the Original Floater – one of the most versatile lures ever made. This is the world’s best selling lure.
How to Fish:
When fishing very skinny water keep the rod tip up and retrieve slowly so that the lure bulges the surface. To cause more commotion on the surface use either a twitching retrieve or stop & go retrieve, allowing the lure to float back up to the surface before twitching or reeling again.
In flowing water – in addition to the traditional down-and-across casts – try imitating injured baitfish by casting upstream or quartering upstream and let the current bring the floating lure down, reeling just enough to keep the line tight and twitching the lure slightly on the surface film.
