'personal idiosyncrasies and dog drool not withstanding...

As the unofficial "Pack Leader", Chief Design Engineer, and provider of copious doggie treats, my job is daunting...
Lucy and Dingo closely supervise me as I dress the hook shaft with mono thread and add some zap-a-gap or Gorila' Glue to create a more substantial mechanical bond... [phuselage less apt to twist on the shaft]...
then...
after all the tying, welding, and treat dispensing is done, I'll put a dab of the acrylic [Bug-Bond or FLEX] between my thumb and index finger and lightly smear it on and into the likely errant fibers... a little dab 'll do ya'...
[SSTS] Subtle Strategically Targeted Stiffness helps defeat wrapping & fouling tendencies...

"the Girlz in standby mode"...

Phur n' Phlash...
