There are many collectors who seek out the original vintage Storm lures, pre-Rapala, and there are still plenty of those to choose from on the internet, especially on eBay.
While the Storm bait can certainly be separated from Rapala, it is difficult to think of one brand without the other since both companies are so closely tied together. Storm tends to be more of a display type lure amongst collectors, whereas older Rapala tends to be bought to be fished.
For sure, both are often purchased for use rather than display, because of the incredibly cheap prices! It is amazing how inexpensive these two brands can be found for!
Many of these older fishing lures can be found brand new in the box, and are quite affordable. These are the ones most anglers buy with the purpose of using to actually catch fish with.
The single vintage Storm's are more often bought for collecting, but they too are quite cheap compared to other antique and collectible bait!
Both can be found abundantly in "lots", particularly the Rapala. This is a fantastic way to buy artificial bait lures and save a bundle too!
