Marrk,

You can do as you please. It makes little difference. Some argue that the fly will turn over when the eyes are on top of the shank, but I honestly think it matters very little. Personally I like the eyes under the shank, but mostly for the look of the fly more than anything else.

Is the bead chain eye tied in above or below the hook shank? The examples look like they are tied both ways. Great looking fly.
