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?

FC: There's no bare shank... the hook is slid inside the the tubing and exits at the bend. Do a search for the boylermaker fly, maybe I'm not explaining the tying sequence correctly. There's many patterns that have a bare shank; are you thinking of patterns like a polafirbre p-nut which is tied entirely on top of the shank? Or many tarpon patterns? Or bluefish flies tied at the bend so the shank acts as chafe protection?

pete the only advantage i can see in it is that the fly might not get torn up as much from toothy critters cause the fly materials may not be in the fishes mouth
