Comments: Hi Guys, Colorado Rich here, Just a quick note to the staff at Fish USA. The product is the product and will stand on it own merits. One item I ordered: the King Fisher Blue Marabou was difficult for me to find and Fish USA had plenty. Fresh, strong, and plentiful. However the point of this message is to highlight the staff at Fish USA. Multiple phone calls and different people on each phone call, all were enjoyable to talk to..It's nice to call and be received by enthusiastic, knowledgeable, friendly people. I'll be ringing you up soon as I'm in need of a new fly line. Thanks Again, Rich

Marabou not great for larger Buggers   (from prior model)
Pros: Well Dyed, Clean, Consistent Size
Cons: Large Quill, Stiff Quill, Short
Best Uses: Fresh Water, Small Patterns
Comments: 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
