Pencil Thin When Wet
Just a note for the uninitiated: the marabou feathers do not stay puffy when wet. The feathers turn into a pencil-thin tail as soon as they hit water and will stay that way until the lure dries.
I gave 4 starts because this is a well-made lure with an excellent finish on the blade and very securely tied feathers.

Location: French River Ontario
Lures Used: White and the black Marabou
Both colors worked great. This season the white did produce more for me. Soak the lure for 10 seconds in the water before the first cast.
Most important to note is that the dye from the colored marabou will bleed into the white ones if they are wet and in close contact for too long. Keep the white separate. Lastly dry them when you head in for the night. Use your fingers to spread the hairs and then the wind on the boat ride home will do the rest.
