Worden's Original Rooster Tail - 1/6 oz.
A Very Versatile Lure
I use these in streams, rivers and lakes in the mountains of Pennsylvania. I use 1/16 up to 1/4, depending on the body of water that I'm fishing. I consistently catch trout and smallmouth bass. I've also caught bluegills, crappies, perch, walleyes and largemouth bass. Basically, just about anything worth catching will take a shot at these spinners. I rarely bother to tie on any other lure.

these lures are the best and i'm not just saying that. i didn't catch the fish but i was with him my grandpa was using the hot pink colored 1/8 oz. and caught a 24 inch steelhead and 4 other 16 inch brown trout i only caught one fish with the spinners but that color helped him and i'm still buying that pink spinner for my salmon and trout fishing trips.

Love it, but having some problems.
I actually have a couple of Rooster Tails. I have a chartreuse 1/8 ounce which is a great little trout bait. I also have a spotted 1/6 ounce chartreuse with orange, and I've had a lot of problems with that spinner just stopping. Jerking the line sometimes helps, but it gets frustrating. When it does work properly, its a great spinner.

I was wading a creek in kentucky last summer and not having much luck with beetlespins. I was told by my cousin that I should try these in the orange/chatruse color. in about one hour i caught 2 redeyes, 7 largemouth, a sucker, many sunfish/bluegill, and a 1.5 pound channel cat on an ultralight rod. What more can you say?
