|The original Rooster Tail spinner is available in thousands of retailers nationwide. Widely considered the “go to” lure among anglers who cast for trout, you can’t go wrong if you tie on a Rooster Tail.|
When it comes to catching all species of trout, it’s the in-line spinner that tops almost everyones list as the “go to” lure for consistent action. Among the in-line spinner category there are dozens of noteworthy examples, but the legendary Rooster Tail Spinner from Yakima is the first to come to the lips of countless anglers nationwide.
Yakima sells more in-line spinners that their competitors combined. The reason is few other manufacturers have made such a commitment to producing as many versions, sizes and color patterns as Yakima. Besides the original Rooster Tail, Yakima also produces the Rooster Tail in a prop blade, the Super Rooster Tail, Rooster Tail Minnow, Sonic Rooster Tail and Vibric Rooster Tail. Yakima didn’t stop here and the Vibric is also available in the SST version for salmon and steelhead anglers. A musky sized version of the Rooster Tail called the Huskie Tail is also available.

and the blade rotates at the slowest possible retrieve speeds.
