The Apollo is widely known as Joe's most copied lure. Many fakes are out there, so it is difficult to make sure you are getting a truly authentic Apollo without knowing the source. Thankfully, this right here is 100% hand made by Joe Yee himself. This lure has likely caught more Marlin than any other lure Joe Yee ever made, originally created in the 60's.
This particular head has gorgeous teal (blue/green) colored abalone shell covering the sides of the insert with a silver rainbow-iridescent patterned wrap along the top and bottom of the insert with Joe's Teddy Bear eyes. Has the "Evil" label along the back.
