Worden's Original Rooster Tail - 1/16 oz.
Bring back Gray Minnow!
These are great lures, my only problem is that around 5 or 6 years ago they stopped making the color that really caught fish around central Ohio. It was called Gray Minnow.
The Minnow color now is literally identical to White, and does not catch fish the way Gray Minnow does. I found this out when I ordered 6 rooster tails in this new color thinking it was the same thing. It's not.
The only good thing is that I can go buy a can of gray spray paint and re-color them, but honestly I have no idea why they would change the color on this. Now they have two identical lures and anyone who wanted the old color can't find it.
Overall these lures are fantastic when you get the color that works in your area, but they need to bring back Gray Minnow for us central Ohio guys.

great river/stream lure
The rooster tail is an amazing lure for those small streams where the bass and panfish lurk. I used a couple of techniques with this lure. For those large flats in the middle of the river, use a cross stream presentation to cover the large area. When fishing timber, cast upstream and reel it just fast enough to keep it in the strike zone. The technique that produced the most, though, was casting into a waterfall and letting the bait fall into the deep plunge pool. I caught a 3 lb. largemouth using this presentation.

So far, I've caught a 3 pound trout, 2-3 pound pickerel, not to mention several other same types of fish that weren't as large. A must for the tackle box. The chrome/white tail was a tremendouse hit as well the the glitter white and the chartreuse. I bought a trophy set in the trout & bass versions. The trout set hasn't done a thing. The bass one is the above. Do yourself a favor & get yourself some of these babies!!! Medium retrieve worked on the last few weekend fishing trips. Trial and error is always best.

Neophite catching fish.
Recently went camping in the western Sierras with the family and decided to do a little fishing for the first time in 25 years. I have never fished for Trout before this trip so I did a little reading and bought some Roosters and a few other types of lures. I caught some nice Rainbows and had many bites on a Silver and black rooster. The rooster was the only lure that I got any action on. when it started to get dark I switched to a yellow Rooster and caught a nice big Rainbow, and a little one as well.
