These hair packers make spun deer hair bodies easier than ever. The Brassie Hair Packer was designed by Chris Helm and this is what he used to pack the hair on his bass bugs. Unique design compresses hair and thread along the shank.
To obtain maximum benefit from this hair packer, wrap a 3/16" thread base before spinning or stacking the first clump(s) of hair. Center the thread on the 3/16" thread base. Spin or stack hair over the thread base. Advance the thread another 3/16" and center the thread over the thread base before spinning or stacking the second clump(s) of hair. Compress the Brassie over the hook shank and pack both the thread and the hair. When compressing the hair use the opposite hand to apply an equal amount of pressure on the other side of the hair. DO NOT TWIST the Brassie when packing the hair. The thread may be damaged or broken. Place a drop of Flexible Head Cement at the base of each compressed clump of hair.
