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 to 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 from bluegill, crappie, and bass, Uncle Don can vouch for that, he tested it before he allowed it on the BreamBugs site. Tied on Eagle Claw Aberdeen hooks. Made in the USA.
