Andy, there is no weight on these flies. I have been emailing back and forth with Jonny King who developed this fly about density of the slinky material on the head and hook size. I am using a Gama SL12 which is a relatively light hook and packing the material very tight. This means the fly won't sink very fast. I'll also be tying some with weight. You can either bury a brass or tungsten cone under the material toward the head or probably wrap with lead wire. I'll try both, but Jonny has been going the cone route. On my flies with weight, I'll put a few turns of red thread on the head to tell them apart.
