Cleaning the fuzz out of deer hair, I use a dog brush. Hertz mountain I think, it has fine diameter bent wire bristles. I picked up this suggestion, along with many others from the Jimmy Nix video on tying bass bugs. Jimmy explains and demonstrates all the how to's with deer hair and wool. He also has some other very useful tips on this video. Get this tape, follow his instructions, and you will be creating some unbelieveable spun hair and fur flys.

You should also try some these flys in the salt, the stripers and blues will be pleased...
