References to the Pre-Formed Hook Technique

Someone asked about content on the pre-formed hook in the Shinpaku Juniper Stream, so I went through some of the archived videos that addressed the pre-formed hook technique. It may be addressed elsewhere, but I figured these would give a basic idea on the pre-formed hook. I included some other techniques that are similar, but may be more applicable in some cases. Feel free to add to this if you find any other references.

As I wrote in another discussion, Ryan was asked to demonstrate it properly and he liked the idea, so I expect it to be shown in detail at some point.
