That's because you wrapped your thread too tight ......yeah I know
Looser thread wraps toward the rear just hold the bucktail down. Tight wraps toward the front hold it in place. When that doesn't work.... superglue.
I never stack my hair for Clousers. IMO they have a more natural tapered shape if the tips are staggered.
