Yes, the hook is up in the “Upside Down Bream Killer”. Designed by Glen Davis for bluegill fly fishing. You can cast this fly into the weeds and brush. Let it sink to the bottom and drag it slowly on the bottom where the big ones are. The hook rides up and the hackle and streamers act as weed guards. Bead eyes, black and white squirrel tail hair hackle and black and white wood duck flank feathers tail with white rubber legs this fly attracts lots of attention for bluegill, crappie and bass, Uncle Don can vouch for that, he tested it before he allowed it on the BreamBugs site. Be one of the first to catch fish with this creative new fly. Tied on Eagle Claw Aberdeen hooks. Made in the USA.
