A bucktail jig is any lead-weighted hook with hair secured to the jig just below the line tie. Traditionally the jigs are constructed of natural hair taken from the tail of a male deer. Some anglers use the term loosely and refer to hair jigs made from marabou or synthetic materials when referring to bucktail-style jigs. In the musky industry, a bucktail is a term to describe a large inline spinner accompanied by a bucktail skirt. Since its debut, the musky bucktail inline spinner has been among the most effective lures in musky fishing.
