This is my 1st time tying on a minna head & on top of that it's a tiny #8 hook....
Any tips to make these look better would for sure help....

They look nice. I prefer some chenille around the body to add bulk and make it taper to the tail instead of just having a big headed minnow. That being said, the crappie will surely eat those. Thank you for posting your work.

Yep, white with red thread body is a good combo too, but those are some nice jigs too Killer. They have worked for me in the past.

Not sure what your painting them with that is a flat color, but some Clear Vinyl with take care of that and make the finish look deeper. Also I am one that uses Red Thread on any thread neck jig I tie.

Still the tie itself looks fine and should work just like it is suppose to!
