Here ya go Dick Hanks....


I not only make all my Assist for the Flat Falls, But, do the same for my others also.

The one Im showing here with the Squid Skirts is the Flat Fall Design, the other pictured are some of the regular assist.

I also sometimes make a regular double hook assist for the flat falls similar to how you buy'm. But, Im partial to the glow in the dark squid.

Im always search'n for better hooks. In the case of Flatfalls, as you know they not only have to be strong, but also very light. These are just I think Gamakatzu Live Bait hooks probably from memory a size 1 or 2... (Im still look'n for better, unless you put your jigs in the Dishwasher after a fishing trip or rinse real good, these are gonna rust with time.)

Theres better line than this, but, Im always look'n there too...

I poke a hole in the nose of the squid skirt
I press a perch bobber in the head of the Skirt to make it float some
put the spectra thru the nose of the skirt
I pull thru the bobber, and slip over the floresent bead
measure and tie on my hook. Knots up to you.. there are several options. a semi uni works great.

For the flatfalls, i use 130# JB Hollow Spectra and try to double inside itself if the hook eye will allow. JB is VERY limber which I like for these... I by some glow in the dark Squid Skirts, some small perch bobbers, and I even get a Fluorescent sleeve. I put those all inside the Squid (on the next to the bottom photo, if you will look infront of the hook, you can see the bead). What this does is allows the hooks to be on the upside of the jig sorta danc'n in the water even if bouncing on the bottom, the hooks ready to be sticky...

I sometimes do make this same thing for a single assist hook also for vertical jig'n, but, Im not sold on that combo yet unless your mainly bottom bounce'n..

My deal is, I get some sort of satisfaction out't mak'n'm myself I guess. I glue things on jigs sometimes, Eyes, Rhinestones, Flashiboo etc... .
Yes, I still use the factory made, but, soon as theirs gets frayed or is cut off, Im putt'n mine on..

Wow! Excellent post Hog.... Thank you.

I've seen a lot of videos where squids were used in conjunction with jigs, but didn't know anything about the "how or the why". Putting the float in the squid head is also something that I had not seen, but want to try. I've got a pile of squids to experiement with. I also enjoy tinkering with (modifying) tackle.

There is no why or how , its fishing .
No rules have ever been written about it , just keep it simple and you'll have a higher success rating.

Do you always tie your mainline to the end that has the squid? I see swivels on both ends of the bottom diamond jig.... how do you use that?
