"I ordered three colors of the barred marabou and am very satisfied with the colors/barring and quality of the feathers I am tying them into wooleybuggers and intruder type streamers. They are well worth purchasing."

The best marabou,

"This is my favorite marabou for streamer tails. The barring really adds to the look of the patten to make it look more natural. I wish more came in a package but this is definitely my go-to marabou and it is hard to find elsewhere."

"I use alot of marabou streamers fishing Ozark tailwaters. This barring makes the fly appear much more natural. I tie the streamer with no weight and fish it with a weighted leader. The combination of the barring and the free swimming unweighted fly is a killer!"

"Some of the best marabou I've used, but very pricey. For most fishing flies I might use something with a slightly lower cost per feather, but for those flies I want to look just so - this is the stuff."
