Worden's Original Rooster Tails

$2.95

Worden's Original Rooster Tails were eveloped in the 1950's by Howard Worden as 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. It's a lure that consistently catches fish.

Original Rooster Tails are available in a large variety of colors and sizes so you are sure to find one just right for any fishing situation. The 1/16 ounce are great for panfish and small trout, the 1/8 ounce are great for trout and bass, and the 1/4 ounce are great for larger trout, bass and other game fish.

Please Note: Not all colors are available in all sizes.

I have used Rooster Tails for a long long time. They are my old stand by and I catch lots of fish on them. I could catch even more fish on them if I could get the blade to spin. Probably 40% of the time the blade don't spin and then you don't catch any fish. I have caught Perch, Walleye, Trout, Smallmouth Bass, Largemouth Bass, White Bass, and Northern on Rooster Tails

Pros: Good For Variety Of Fish, Irresistible to Fish

When you look at a Rooster Tail you wonder how in heck are fish attracted to this thing. Don't even think about it. Just tie one on and start using. I've been successful with largemouth and smallmouth bass, black perch, panfish, walleye, and especially trout. The rainbow and yellow color work best for me and I've used them in rivers, lakes and ponds. The perfect all around bait.

There is a reason Worden's Original Rooster Tails have been able to hang around so long. They consistently catch a variety of fish. They are relatively inexpensive compared to other lures, and a small variety of sizes and colors in your tackle box is a nice insurance policy for those times when other methods aren't producing.

I've not used this color before, but have come to really love a number of Rooster Tails. I use them for bream fishing (bluegill/crappie) and small largemouth bass. Might as well go home if fish are hitting the Rooster Tail. It's only "drawback" is that it's treble hook's easily snagged in waters w/ much vegetattion of underwater tree's/limbs.

Reviewer
Dansville, New York

About Me:
Casual Fisher
Rooster tails used to make and sell a safety pin style lure with the body on one side and the spinner on the other side of the pin,hook trailing the body. I like this lure and still have a couple in my tackle box. I like these lures because they don't twist your line when casting or trolling like the straight spinners do. Will "Rooster Tails"by Worden ever make these lures again? I caught a lot of fish with these lures in the past.
