Q - use goop to attach plain google eyes to your deer hair bugs. Easiest to work with and really holds. I have tried everything including all of the zapagap products and goop or shoe goo works best. I would try the straight razor before going to clippers. Deer hair is hollow and I think it would probably jam the clippers. The blade is amazingly efficient once you learn how to use it SAFELY.
Anyone know what the gel-coated thread for tying bass bugs is called? I tried some a couple of years ago and it made the bodies much quicker and easier to tie...
