When I've been makin gthem lately, a few things I do.

The closer to 1" and even you make the fibers, when stacking, the better the brush will come out with less trimming involved.

use dubbing wax on the wire when making the loop.

I try to make each brush about 12" long.

Spin the loop/brush with the drill until the wire breaks. It twists up surprsiginly well.

Make sure you remove all under fur, or the brush will knot up.

Put some kind of hook in a cordless drill, you can bend a coat hanger, I used a small screw-in brass hook like people use to hang a plant or a kitchen utensil.

If'n you've got the boat to do it, do it!  Take a floating line & a sink tip line, 8 weight at a minimum.

True.  You could also catch (25) 7" trout with those nymphs compared to my (1) 25" trout.  I've caught enough small trout for this lifetime.
 
Cold's fly would look great in his boyfriend's ear.

This thing is something like 5 segments long, Ive been using some cotter pins I picked up at lowes.  Holding them together with a couple of strands of 60 pound braid.  I don't know how they will hold up in the long run, but I landed my first musky on one recently, and it did fine.  It ate something like this, unfortunately lost that fly though.
 

 
These are supposed to look like baby smallmouth or something similar. 
 

 
I wanted to do something lighter, more snake-ish, and I haven't fished this one yet.  I always **** the bed when it comes to the head.
 

 
This is the one in the back from above.  I cant wait to throw it at a log jam in the creek.
 

 
Another experiment, long and bushy.
 

 
A couple of skinny ones...
