    "Bitsy Wiggler" by Strike King. It's not found on Strike King's web site.

    This one is a floater diver and looks like a little Red Wiggler with big eyes. Also comes in green. $2.85 at Wally World.

    What the heck...I bought one of each.

    I always have a hard time finding them up here, but my favorite ultra-light lure is the brown Rooster tail. Yellow works pretty good too, but nothing beats brown.

    Are you speaking of Worden's Rooster Tail spinners...the cheaper version of Mepps French spinners?

    Bass Pro Shops' web site seems to have them in every color under the sun.

    LOL!

    The Mepps spinner...the only thing the French made which was worth a damn besides oral sex. :)

    Actually, Mepps products are manufactured-assembled in Wisconsin by Sheldon, Inc. Some of the parts are still machined in Frenchy-land but not all of the parts.

    I haven't seen the brown ones in the local shops, and you're right, I do remember seeing them in the BPS catalog. Thanks!
