More enjoyable than ever


For jobs big and small, the right tools make tasks easier and enjoyable. Before hitting the water next season, make room in your boat for these new accessories from Rapala, the most trusted name in fishing since 1936.

Rapala 5-inch Folding Fish Pro Fillet

The perfect size for a variety of cutting tasks, Rapala’s new patent-pending 5-inch Folding Fish Pro Fillet Knife folds to a compact size for easy storage. Folded, it measures only 6¼-inches. An easy-release, lock-back design makes it a breeze to open and close.

Made from hand-ground Japanese steel with a progressive taper flexible blade for optimum control, it provides perfect balance, a comfortable grip and a super-sharp edge. Its high-polish blade cuts easily through bone structure and tough skin. Its ergonomic handle will fit your hand comfortably. A safety guard provides extended protection.

Rapala Retractable Line Scissors


The new Rapala Retractable Line Scissor’s super-sharp blades cut small braid and nylon fishing line with ease. Simply slide your line into the tool’s handy “V” cavity and squeeze its red handles. It comes with a carabiner for quick and secure attachment practically anywhere.
