The hook makes the curve of the fly. I use gama b10s hooks.I've tied them both with cuts all the way down and with leaving the top portion uncut and sliding the hook eye through. I almost always use the latter method now if for no other reason than I think it looks better. I believe the original left the front uncut. Also, the tutorial you posted says to leave the front uncut. steps 7 and 10 explain it well.
