The first Original lures were sold commercially in Finland in 1938.
Started selling in the USA in 1959/60. (3040 lures on the first order).
 
Life magazine did an article on Rapala in 1962. By coincidence it was the same edition that had the death of Marilyn Monroe.........the biggest selling issue of all time.
 
The rest is history........
