I got a lure in the mail this week from Barry (thanks mate) and included were a few "stowaways"! At first glance these just looked like "bog standard" Rapala Shads, but on closer inspection, I found that the bibs had been embossed. The yellow one has Mister Twister Sportfisher and the Perch scale one has Moriyama Japan on it. Did Rapala make lures for other companies or are these copies?
