Strip one side of the plume, tie in by the tips in the rear of the fly and palmer forward while stroking the fibers back as you palmer forward. If you run out before reaching the point you like you can tie in another.
I'm guessing you are trying to tie in the whole plume. Stripping one side will complete your task.

I've tried it the other way for a pattern that required the marabou only for the top of the fly and it took 8 or 9 tufts to make it look full enough. Way too time consuming. Needless to say, I don't like that pattern.
