Worden's® Original Rooster Tail® - 1/8 oz.
I like these for river smallmouth, but I also have them along for lake fishing too.
One day I wasn't doing too well in my favorite lake and I tied one of these on before calling it quits for the day.
Beleive it or not, within forty five minutes I had the biggest stringer of bass in my life. An 8lber, 7.5, 6.2, 5.5, and 4.9. I would have been smokin' at the classic.
Moral of story, Don't underestimate the power of small lures.

Catches Everything! I swear it
So many of you scoff when those of who use the rooster tail tie one on our line and cast it out into the water, but let me set the record straight on this, this little devil catches everything in the lake. I have personally caught, Large and Small mouth Bass, Crappie, Bluegills, Trout, Northern Pike, Bullheads, Perch, and my buddy Bill even caught a 15 pound Muskie on one. If you are looking to add a new weapon in your arsenal, buy some of these babies. My favorite is yellow, but I also favor black and even pink. Trust me, you can't go wrong on this one.

I have used roostertails since the late sixties & have caught literally thousands of trout & bass with them. I live in the Eastern Sierra of Ca. & fish at least 200 days a year. These lures out fish all others when used properly.Stay with the natural colors ( brown, green, black etc.) Their new flashy colors look cool on store peg hooks but not to wild brown trout. The problem recently is the thread on the maribou tail unwinds ( a drop of superglue before use cures this) & the paint on the body chips off easily. I've emailed wordens about the problems and received no response. Maybe if Bass Pro buyers would let them know they would respond. It's sad to see the quality of these fine lures go downhill in the last few years. Mr. Worden would be upset to see how his great design has such poor quality 50 years later.

Believe or not these lures are killers in the Florida surf, especially when shrimp tipped, for all species.....redfish, permit, bluefish.
