Whiting Chickabou Patches
The marabou like feathers are what Whiting Farms named Chickabou. They are much finer and more delicate then turkey marabou, which tends to be large and coarse. Because it’s from chicken, numerous patterns and markings are available to enhance the effectiveness, particularly grizzly and dyed grizzly colors. It can be used in two basic ways. When tied on at the rear of the fly Chickabou provides an exceptionally alive appearing tail for damsel patterns, dragon flies and smaller woolly buggers. When tied onto the body of the fly, either sparsely or generously, an incredibly live and undulating motion of the Chickabou occurs in even the slightest water movement.
