I have returned from Cuba to have Covid and should be clear of it by the end of this week and will resume orders 18-19th March. Sorry about this but my customers safety is paramount and I will be sending out a lot of freebies for your wait, thanks for your Patience and Custom. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU READ BELOW BEFORE ORDERING, MARABOU 3 WEEK LEAD TIME AND FLIES UP TO 10 WEEK LEADS TIME. IF YOU ARE PLACING FLY ORDERS, BE AWARE OF UP to 10 WEEKS FOR DELIVERY AS I DO ALL THE FLIES MYSELF AND I AM VERY BUSY. MARABOU UP TO 3 WEEKS FOR DELIVERY AS AGAIN I DO ALL THIS MYSELF AND IT IS VERY POPULAR. Due to the Virus Restrictions please NOTE I will be shipping orders once a week on FRIDAYS and if I can fit any other day’s midweek Until further Notice, STAY SAFE ALL Regards Dave.
I first got introduced to this fly in BC Canada by my team mates Mike Oshi and Andy Larkin.
Has worked a treat for me ever since I got home to the UK, works very well on small still waters and picks up the bigger fish.
