Developed in the 1950's by Howard Worden, the Worden's® 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.
Worden's® Original Rooster Tail® - 1/8 oz.
When all else fails
This is the go to lure when all else fails. It will catch anything at anytime. If you can't catch a fish with a white rooster tail, you'd better just hang it up for the day.

Last saturday i was at the stream and was fishing mostly spinners. at the end of the day i caught 3 descent trout. I used mostly mepps and a few jigs. But today i used this 1 lure in one of the golden/yellow colors and at the end of the day caught 7 trout. 1 being over 13 in. I only put 4 because sometimes the blade stops spining, especialy in the 1/16

Rooster tails...Trout love them!
We use the 1/8 oz brown rooster tail for trout fishing here in Missouri and in Colorado. They work great. Sometimes these are a little hard to come by when you are out shopping for them so this year we ordered them on-line. It was great.

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).
