Hi, new to tying. What do you like better, hackel or marabou?. I really am not looking for durability, i normally have to trow it away after a day, the hook is all bent. From a fishing standpoint, what is better?

Hackle is easier to work with.

Both, but remember nothing has the action of marabou! Also remember don't leave the stem in when tying marabou unless it's so very thin. I probably on normal jigs only use the stem in my tails 5% to 10% of the time. There are some patterns that use the tips of the marabou, but usually in a fly.

Kicking this old thread back up.

It seems like most of the jigs are see nowadays are hackle over marabou.
Is there a reason for this other than hackle being easier to work with?
Does one work better than the other in a certain seasons or conditions?

Thanks for the info, I just thought it was odd 90% of the hand tied jigs I see here are done with hackle.
I don't see marabou jig pics nearly as often & was wondering if it was solely because hackle is easier to work with?

I am just getting into tying jigs and plan to tie & fish both; for you fellas tying/fishing both, is there a time of year or condition that you would choose to fish one over the other?

If your just starting out Tin Boat I would use simple materials first and get the hang of it all then start experimenting from there.

Just my 2 cents worth.
