Dick, Lead wire is not necessary to make this fly swim with the hook point up. If you notice the photo you will see that most of the material is above the hook. This creates a drag similar to an underwater parachute with the hook being the weight hanging below, the only way this fly can swim is with the hook point up.
I do however add lead wire to this fly when I want to fish it deeper. I hope I answered your question.
