    I'm looking for some of Rapalas original floater, the F13 in the bleeding copper flash.
    If anybody has any leads or has located any, please PM me. Even some F-11 would work.

    I'll keep an eye out at some of the tackle shops up here. Is there a reason that these are difficult to find? And is this what you are looking for? rap.jpg

    Yes Musher, that's the one----Preferably in the 3 hook model #13.
    I'll take some F11s if need be.
    They're discontinued!
    Thanks

    Ok, I'll keep an eye at the local shops and at auctions. When I travel for work if I have extra time to kill in the evenings I generally look for a sport store to wonder around in. I really like to stop in at the old school mom and pop type tackle shops. If nothing else for the nostalgia of pre-big box store shopping.

    I agree----I like those old bait shops best. I bought a F11 one I found in Effie this afternoon. This is giving me a good excuse to stop anywhere & everywhere they may sell any tackle. Kinda fun !
    I've had great luck with them during the fall.

    I've looked some. They're a discontinued model.
