It's all in how the materials are tied onto the hook. By tying them in and orienting them so that they are above the plane of the shank and the bend, the hook bend acts as a keel and becomes the bottom.

The same principle applies to jiggy flies, Flip Pallot's Prince of Tides fly, and bendback flies.
