Default Re: Marabou streamer on 2/0 hooks - how much?

i think you've way too much marabou on there.
One feather should be enough, and if you tie it in correctly, you can have it rotate around the shank of the hook for an even coverage.

Most of the big streamer tyers that i know of use only one. Dont forget that marabou will pulsate in the current as the fly is stripped.

I"m curious to why you are going to 2/0 hooks? i've tied big streamers on the size 2 B10S, and that is a lot of hook at that size.
Dont over think the tying, keep it simple. To weight the fly, use a lead (or non-lead) underbody.
