Rick Rose of Rick Rose of Hawaii Lures sadly passed in 1999. Fishing to the very end. His first charter boat was on Oahu in the 50s, started making lures at that time. He was very handy, he built his own houses. Moved to Maui late 50s and got the Fishing vessel Judy Ann. Moved to Big Island in 1978. His largest marlin was 1711. He also has 2 fish in the Smithsonian, he caught 2 fish they thought were extinct, one of which they didn't think lived in the Pacific Ocean. That's some amazing history about him. This was his last batch of lures he produced in the late 1990’s.
