Where do you attach the dropping hook to the first hook with the material?
Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Martin
You tie down the mono or whatever you use for link with a thread ( I use 6/0) on the top of the main hook, then you bend it a tie the free end back to the rear. Than some super glue. Tied twicely it won't let go and combined force of wraps will hold mono without problems.

I made up 4 Charlie with 2 facing up and 2 facing down. It seems easier to have the hooks facing up when making them up. There's more effort in having the hooks facing down with the holding of the hook in place and using a few extra layers of uv resin to the mono or fluorocarbon link.
