    What does the bend at the eye of the hook do for the action of this pattern?

    The hook likes to ride 'upside down', so the bend of the hook helps the eyes flip the fly over. The bend also helps the fly to track a little straighter.

    The Eagle Claw EC413, which is a jig hook the one used here, except instead of a 90 degree bend it's at an angle, is used quite a bit by striper fly fishers in the San Francisco/Northern Cal area. It's a very cool hook. For more info on this check out Dan Blanton's website.
