Like everyone else, I'm trying to learn and save some bucks. Who ties their own fluke rigs and what works best? Looking for ideas to tie my own. As I said before ,with the knowledge on this site, there is no reason to re-invent the wheel. Let's see what you have.

A simple rig I use with braid is to tie a wide gap hook and the end of the line. I then come back about 18" and tie a dropper loop and put on a bucktail. Don't bother with a leader. Works well. Another method is to use a fishfinder rig.

3way swivel w/ clip for weight, or fishfinder slide for sinker. I like a long leader: 24-30 inches w/ kayle style hook(snelled) plain, or tube style teaser, or plastic squid of different colors. You can use small spinner blades that are added to the leader, beads. Leader is 40 lb floro.
I rig 2 rods each w/ a different rig and which ever performs better the other rod gets changed over to it.
If I'm fishing snags than I'll go to a jig w/ squid set-up.

I start with 40lb Momoi Diamond clear for leaders.
1000 yds for $50.00, enough for many years (300 rigs +/-) and cheaper than 50 yd skeins at $7.99.
Three Way with a sinker snap at the top.
I use Tsunmai and Boone 3", 4" and 6" squid skirts, red beads and hammered spinners.
Hooks: 5/0 Gami Octupus or 5/0 Mustad O Shaugnessy for the longer squid skirts.
I like making them and it saves a few bucks too.
