IN my ex­pe­ri­ence you can never have too much marabou. It must be one of the most pop­u­lar fly-ty­ing ma­te­ri­als, adding colour and move­ment to a whole va­ri­ety of flies. These packs of ‘mini’ plumes are es­pe­cially ver­sa­tile. Each pack con­tains be­tween 24 and 28 plumes. They mea­sure up to four inches in length and the max­i­mum fi­bre length is no more than 1.5 inches. They can be used whole, with two tied in back to back for re­ally dense wings and tails with a lovely ta­per and bags of move­ment. On long shank lures and small preda­tor pat­terns the feath­ers can be used to cre­ate very ef­fec­tive and mo­bile palmered bod­ies and throat hack­les. The feather fi­bre can be trimmed off the stem and used to make wings and tails on smaller pat­terns up to size 10. The marabou is avail­able in 18 colours: olive, light olive, grey olive, brown olive, yel­low, brown, red, claret, orange, black, white, tan, fluo char­treuse, pur­ple, fluo hot pink, fluo blue, fluo green and craw­dad orange. You get a lot of ma­te­rial for your money and all are good qual­ity se­lected plumes, well dyed and with no waste.
