I've had this lure for quite some time. It was given to me by a good friend (who since has passed away) in a vintage tackle box along with several other older lures. I've been collecting lures for about 10 years-particularly rapala and storm. I have all of the colors and models of the rapala fr-5 and fr-7(all in double and some triple quanities because I still use them). This particular perch pattern is one that I can't double up on because I can't find another like it. I check Ebay regularly,along with quite a few other vintage sites,but no luck after several years. If anyone knows the history or availability of this pattern,I would greatly appreciate it. Look closely at the pattern-it is markedly different than the standard perch pattern. Info can be sent to me thru Ebay-my usename is flubb4r. Thanks

    this is a custom painted lures, the paint on the diving lip is the dead giveaway to any custom, rapala paints the lure and then placed the lip. it looks like a nice paintjob, but not original.
