Tying with marabou is one of the most beautiful, useful natural materials available to fly tiers. Use it to tie leech imitations, Woolly Buggers, mayfly nymphs, baitfish imitations for salt and fresh water, and steelhead flies. Every year, fly tiers scour their local fly shops to find new materials. Retailers turn their shelves upside down and re-arrange to make room for all of the new goodies. Most new materials are man-made fibers like yarn, flash, dubbing, or synthetic hair. Natural materials have been around since fly tying began, so there is rarely anything new. However, some of these old materials often create the most productive, exciting flies if used properly.
One of the most beautiful, useful natural materials is marabou. Marabou moves and breathes with life at the slightest movement or push of current and is an important ingredient in a variety of flies, from the always-deadly Woolly Bugger to mayfly nymphs and steelhead flies.

Features of Marabou Feathers Fly Tying:
Marabou is the soft underfeathers found on the body of a turkey and is similar to goose down or the filoplume of a pheasant. There are three important structural features of a feather: the stem; the barbs, which are the fibers extending from the stem; and the barbules, which are the smaller shorter fibers attached to the barbs. The barbules of a primary flight feather act as the zipper teeth that attach each feather barb to its neighbor. The barbules on a marabou feather are fluffy and insulate the bird againstthe cold.
