Style Question!

I've seen several examples of SW flies tied with the hook shank exposed, as is the case with this pattern.
Is there an advantage to having the shank exposed like this?
Are there patterns or target species that are more suited to this style?
Would this adaptation be called a "style" of tying or is it specific to a few patterns? etc?
