Default FUZZY GRUB BODIES

Has anyone ever tried to make their own fuzzy grub bodies.

I have been saving torn up worms to make 1 to 1 1/4 inch grubs.

I have ben thinking about how to insert marabu feathers into them to make fuzzy grub type bodies in color combos I want.

Does anyone know it the feahers a inserted and glued or just molded right into the grub bodies while molding the grubs?

You could probably use a sewing needle for this. Thread the feather stem through the eye of the needle and hten pierce the worm body down the middle until the end pokes through. Then pull the feather end out of the eye and remove the needle. Never done it, but I don't see why it wouldn't work.

There's also a similar technique with thread you could probably do as a pull through. Same approach you use with tying off thread wraps in rod building.

Just bend the end of the feather over and pull it through with a piece of stiff wire.

Use the quill of the feather to push through the body... Snip it off when you hit the size you want, put a small drop of crazy glue on the quill and pull it back into the worm... Been doing that for years..
