Worden's Original Rooster Tail - 1/4 oz.
Absolutely the best smallmouth bass lure I've ever used for river fishing! The hottest color or pattern varies with the seasons and year by year, so take a selection. A Plano pocket pack of Rooster Tails in assorted colors is all that I have carried with me for Tenn. and Va. river fishing for many years, and I've never been disappointed.

Been using Rooster Tails for over 30 years and have caught EVERYTHING on them. It's good to have a variety of sizes and colors for different times of year, water conditions, type of fish desired, lake\pond\river etc... Just keep the hooks sharp and the blades free of debris and if the fish are hitting you'll catch something.

Best Lure/Poor Quality
This is a great lure and I catch a majority of my fish with it. If fact I have caught trophy brown trout on this, a 9lbs and 15 lbs on the pure white, 1/8 oz.
However, the quality of these lures have slipped. They don't last very long, and begin to stop spinning, especially after you catch a fish the pin gets bent.

Heres where it starts
I still have the first lure i ever got. It was a rooster
tail. These spinners have worked for me on many
occasions. I have caught trout, bass, perch and
panfish on the 1/4 oz size. They will work in almost
all presentations (trolling, casting, burning) but
they will not work every time you use them.
