Re: Pokey hackle thingy -- how to avoid
If you have real steady hands, you can use a safety razor to slice it off. Although, you need to be VERY careful to not knick your tying thread. Nothing will bum you out more thn watching your new bug come unraveled because you slipped a little bit.
Probably best to stick with Ard's info. In fact, just as a general rule of thumb... always pay attention to what he has to say. You're bound to learn something new.
