No one was bigger in the walleye fishing world than Ron Weber for bringing the Rapala to all of us and then creating the vast varieties of it over all those years that grace our tackle boxes today. Where would we all be as walleye anglers without Ron Weber? THANK YOU Ron....thank you.

And the lure is correctly pronounced RAW-pa-la. Not Rap-a-la. Everyone practice that 100 times before they go to bed tonight and they will wake up a better person.
