I would flick onto eBay type in "mouse lure" and you should get 50 in Aus & 140 Usa to help give you ideas
To improve on.

You could try and have a tail epoxyed in above a treble hook near its but hole to weigh it down to sit its head up a bit.

Then have 2 single hooks where the back legs would be on the rope style to the closed eye hooks ?

With a bit of small silver or brass blade to get their attention ? And look like legs kicked

I have never used one but just throwing you some ideas for you.

Try and Have a look on eBay to get some more ideas mate and look for older ones they seemed to know what worked back then thumbsupsmilie

Cheers Rick
If I'm not fishing I'm thinking about It

Chimpetta, depending on the wood used the mouse shape should naturally make the tail end heavier so sit in the water with tail slightly down, I would myself put a prop on the tail end and make it into a fizzer......Nev
