    Hey man, just wondering how your streamers ride in the water when the dumbbell eyes are tied on top of the hook shank? Is it hook up or hook down when in the water. In regards to which is the top or bottom to the streamer. does it ride with the light or dark side up? just curious-Thanks

  4. Afox, this particular fly will ride with the hook point down. Weighted dumbell eyes are the only dumbells that will affect how the hook point rides. If you use lead dumbell eyes on top of the hook it will make the fly invert. If you put lead dumbell eyes on the under side of the hook it will ride hook poit down.

    Hope that helps.

      Ok, so those clear eyes aren’t really weighted and don’t affect the ride of the hook? if so do you always fish those on a sink tip obviously. Thanks for the reply. Super tasty looking bugs! nice work man.
