    Steve - many thanks.....

    Greetings Steve,

    I write this note to thank you for your excellent article in the most current issue of Musky Hunter, entitled "Minutia Matters". This is one of the most thought provoking articles I have seen in some time.

    I read articles, attend seminars and trade shows. The message that comes across to me most often is "buy or try this, that or some other thing" and you will catch many big fish. My results are the same most of the time when I buy or try this, that or some other thing.

    Your article gave me things to ponder when my partners and I decide which things to try next. The following sentence in your article resonated with me: "Understand that randomly picking through your tackle box in the hope of finding a lure that produces magic is a complete waste of time". I readily admit that most of what we tried in the past was selected randomly (e.g. what worked last time) rather than systematically.

    Your article has given me an avenue for personal growth as an angler. Many thanks again for another excellent article from Musky Hunter.

    Kindest regards.....

    Steve: Great article, and I agree completely with you calling "bucktails" spinners. In fact, that is exactly what they are. In the late 1800's, they tied the hooks with chicken feathers, but the term "feathertails" was never used. "Bucktails" evolved with the advance of musky fishing in Wisconsin and the tail hooks of spinners were covered with the plentifully available deer hair and the "bucktail was born. While most musky anglers still call "spinners" "bucktails", as you noted the many, many different hook covers used today dispels the actuality of the name. Still I imagine, most will continue to call them "bucktails" due to tradition and ease.

    Musky regard,
