Do you pack/stack/spin deer hair?
If so, Iā€™m sure you’ve used a hair packer at some point. But, for whatever reason its buried on your tying table getting little use. I know that the poor/weak materials and the small size of most hair packers turned me off. It is too hard to get leverage, and when (not “if”) it slips, the small size means that a hook is likely to draw blood. It happens to everyone… don’t lie.

ENTER the SF Fugly Packer

yeah… i did a doublr-take on the name

At fly shows, Pat Cohen (www.rusuperfly.com) always has a table LOADED with amazing deer hair patterns… take a look at his site- you’ll understand. But this year he pulled back the curtain to show off the tools of his trade… the FUGLY PACKER. At first glance it makes your eye blink and mumble “Holy shit”… I know I did.

The SF Fugly will eat your packer

I mean seriously.  Which hair packer are you going to pick?

Based on looks alone, its impressive. But with a hook in the vise you start to understand the thought behind the design.

An oversized hook notch makes large/heavy wire hooks a non-issue.
The oversized construction allows for a firm grip and leverage.
The extra length ensures that when your grip slips, you are not getting a hook to the hand.
The extra weight gives you the leverage to pack hair as tight as possible… giving you amazing results when the hair is trimmed.

They can be purchased from Pat’s site- (www.rusuperfly.com )

Perfect grip for leverage and finger safety



Pack it tight!

    The SF Fugly Packer is hands down a well made, useful, great tool for packing good deer hair bugs. Had it for a week as of this post, and the leverage you get cannot be compared to the smaller brass packers or other tools. Heavy construction, designed and made by someone that believes in and uses it. You won’t be disappointed if you buy it.
