Sili Skin Bait Fish

This is my first fly on the new sili skin..very easy to tie. Used a 2/0 long Varivas hook. Gave this some thought on how to apply the silly skin without creating a weird fly... Tied in a large mylar tube..but above the hook so I would have the shank at the very bottom of the fly..slipped in two chickabou feathers for tail and tied down. I wanted to be sure to capture the general shape of a fish. The eyes are on the inside since I don't know about the outside application on this stuff. Colored the top of the fly olive and also colored the inside of the sili skin.. ..folded it over carefully and trimmed down..that's about it. The skin itself gives the subtle flash.

John, pardon my confusion . . . could you explain where and how the siliskin is tied down on that fly? I can't tell by looking at the photo because I'm not quite sure what the stuff looks like.
