    The condensed videos are efficient, and the acoustic guitar is appealing, too.

    The Mud Minnow might be even more useful (think: flounder) in a hook-up orientation. A 60° jig hook would do the trick, wouldn’t it?

      Yes, a 60 degree jig hook like an Eagle Claw 413 with some bead chain eyes would probably swing it over. You could trim the belly fibers flush with the bottom of the hook.

    I enjoyed the video but it would have been much more helpful if it included the materials, hook sizes etc.

      Hello Walter and thanks for writing.

      The materials list is located on the video at the end. But since you missed it, it is possible others have missed it too. So, I added a second material list to the text below the main video “frame.” Thanks again for the comment.
