  M40 MicroMin (Shallow)
A shallow running micro lure with lively narrow action and nuggety body.

Use for stream casting in trout territory. Cast across rapids and riffles and work through fast water and eddies near rocks.

Floater ?
If you need MicroMin to float, remove one hook and drift it in the current, with short retrieves and twitches.
Countdown ?
Sinks slowly. Good count-down lure, responding well to a pause-twitch routine.

Line attachment
Like all micro lures, gives best action when attached to line with a loop knot.

Small sportfish
A good lure for small sportfish or those which are shy of large in your face lures.
