Isn’t it sexy? Can you imagine it wet? No, not her baby doll. That sexy, undulating tail on that damsel. I said not her. Ok, I haven’t really posted one naughty insinuation on SwittersB in ages. So, its over…relax.

For the beginning fly tier, marabou is one great material to become familiar with for tails, abdomen, wings. It pulses and undulates with the slightest movements. Learn the types of marabou feathers and how they are used for various patterns. Never treat marabou with any floatant materials (same with CDC). Let it work its magic. This will also encourage you to visualize how you are presenting a fly beneath the surface.
