Wapsi Marabou is a turkey body feather. It has a fluid, lifelike breathing action that makes it incredibly useful for fly tying. Marabou can be used for streamers, tails, bodies, throats, collars, wings, and backs.


  • Wooly Bugger 1/8 oz. has a shorter fiber and a larger, stiffer center shaft, making it a good choice for wooly buggers
  • Strung 1/4 oz. has a longer fiber with a very fine center shaft, making it ideal for streamer wings and tailing on many streamers

    A good product, for the beginner like me, I was very happy they explained the difference between the two styles as well.

    Marabou not great for larger Buggers

    This marabou was purchased for use on Woolly Buggers, on size 6 through 10 hooks with shank length of 4X - 6X, requiring fairly long, free-moving marabou tail. I have had good results with other Wapsi products, and their marabou had good reviews on other sites, but has been a disappointment to me. The Wapsi marabou fibers are very flexible, but are fairly short, on a relatively heavy, stiff quill, which maintains it's curvature to near the end of the feather. This makes it poor for larger Buggers. However, it would be good for shorter tails on smaller hooks and where the ratio of tail to hook shank length is relatively small. Otherwise, the stiffer part of the quill end will come into play and won't allow the "tail" to move freely
