Developed in the l950's by Howard Worden, the Rooster Tail is one of the most productive lures ever invented. The action of the spinning blade in combination with the colorful, pulsating hackle tail makes the Rooster Tail irresistible to any gamefish. Rooster Tail is a lure that consistently catches fish. Fishermen across North America and abroad are using Rooster Tails successfully for trout, bass, perch, crappie stripers, pike, steelhead, salmon and other gamefish.
Rated 4 out of 5 by SCHROEDER great purchase
i love these lures i have caught hundreds of trout and many many other fish as well. i only things i do not like about the lures is the paint gets beat off of fast, and the wire bends alot and you half to straighten it out often but i dont expect them to last for ever for only costing $3. but they will catch fish like crazy for sure. done buy the off brands i have tried them and have nothing but problems with the blades not turning so stick to the original rooster tails

I've been using roostertails for 15+ years and it is the most consistent spinner ever! Yea like others say, the bend and chip....THATS because they're being slammed by fish all day! Fortunately they bend right back. You'll catch Just about everything big or small on roostertails Guaranteed

I would give Worden's Rooster Tails 5 stars always, if it were not for how fragile they are. Paint chips, spinner stops spinning, bends easily. $3 is too much to pay when you get limitted life and proper function from them. They are an effective lure when they work properly.

if your using joe's flies and you should be. we've used the brass color spinner with any of the white or colored lures the green was a good color. you really have to have one of each color and keep trying different lures till you find one they like.
Bass generally can feed by sight as most predatory game fish do. As such, its very important that you "match-the-hatch". That means matching the colors and patterns to the predominat prey of the fish in the body of water that you are targeting. Also, keep in mind that more neutral colors (whites, browns, blacks, and drab greens) tend to do well in clearer water while bright colors such as reds, yellows, oranges, and chartruse, do well in stained and murky waters.
Really any way you want, you want to keep the spinner blade moving though.
Cast it out and: -Reel it in slow-fast. -Let it sink for a second up to a minute and reel it in. The faster you go the quicker it will come up to the surface, the slower the slower it will come up. -Reel and give your rod a jerk every now and then. -Troll it behind the boat.
Florida fresh water use I would just cast and retrieve like any other spinner bait but use your fish sense and reel slow or fast and sometimes let it sink then reel in. I also have jigged in deep water. Large silver Rooster Tails I actually used in salt water at my cousins place near St James City and caught a few!
I'm prejudiced and use the Salmon Fly Rooster Tail the most but depending on what time of year and the hatch that is out you can gauge the color by that. I used to have very good luck with the Rainbow Rooster but it has not been the same for a long time now but your area may be different. Dark Green with a hatch design and gold highlights has been a winner for me too. I don't know the proper names.
it depends mainly on water clarity - natural colors, like white & silver, are better in clear water, bright gaudy colors, like chartreuse, are better in dingy water. Gold is best in tea-colored water(called 'tannin stained' water).
