3 Tiny little Rapala

Post by Pecheur » Thu Oct 13, 2011 9:08 pm

Hi there,

Earlier in the week, I came home after work and opened the mail box...
I was sure to find yet another bill in there.
But a bill it was not, a very good surprise it was!

A very good friend of mine, whom I have known for over 30 years, had decided to send me 3 little Rapala as a surprise. (they are 3cm long).
And the guy is not even remotely into fishing!

This was a very nice and kind gesture, and really made my day.

Here they are.

Have a good day,
Pecheur

I've got two of this size as well , one sinking and one floating in same color , ........won them in a Rapala color design competition years ago , ...........very tiny bits , but I occassionally cast them for trout in local "put-and-take" ponds , .........but otherwise they're too small to be worked with my usual gear !

Nice present for sure thumbsupsmilie , .........greetz , diemai howdy
Hurts so bad living in a loony bin !

Hi there,

Sorry for the late replies, very busy at the moment, but for a good cause...

Any way, yes that was much better than a bill...

And I don't think that I will be using these ones.

For the codes on the end of the boxes, I am not really sure as what you are refereing to?
There is a F-3 on the top of the box.
And a F 03 with different letters on the back of them.
(different as in F 03 BCSD and F 03 BCF and F 03 BOF)

Is that what you wanted to know or should I look for something else?

Have a good day,
Pecheur

Trout for sure here in the States Pecheur thumbsupsmilie

But also a group of fish here in America "grouped together" as called panfish.

Sunfish...Bluegill...Crappie.

F03's are especially effective in creeks / small rivers or on lakes & ponds at daybreak or dusk...when smaller fish are shallower / near the surface howdy

They can also be put down behind weights / downriggers for when fish are deeper wwnk

Rapala also makes a couple of TINY Countdowns...

A Mini Fat Rap...

And a couple of small X-Raps...

Hope this helps ???
