UV2 Premium Selected Marabou
UV2 Premium Selected Marabou is all hand selected by us to provide you with the perfect marabout feather. Primarily its to be used for hackle on large wet flies like sculpins or Salmon and steelhead flies like intruders. The tips and length of the feather, as well as the thickness of the stem is important and selected exactly for this reason. Below is a basic video we did on marabou in general. You may find it useful. FYI; Marabou is the hind end or the bushy BUTT feathers located on a turkey, and almost all comes from the USA. We grow and eat a crap load of turkey. Now days all white feathers...but that another story. So some folks are feather collectors. They get the feathers as the birds are processed. They literally fill containers with Bou. Can you imaging the amount of feathers it takes to fill a full container?? These are then sent to China where they are washed, hand sorted, graded, then some are strung. That what these are. Once strung we then buy them back. We usually import 150 kilos per shipment. And we blow thru this amount. I am going to say made in America.
