great for smaller baitfish

Reviewer: A viewer from Clarks Summit, PA US

if you need to tie bucktail streamers in smaller sizes, this is a must... all the action of bucktail with much shorter fibers and more bulk for sculpin imitations.

Traditional Salmon and Steelhead Patterns

Reviewer: A viewer from Palatine, IL US

Calf hair is an important element to creating some traditional steelhead and salmon patterns. Hareline calftails were a bit small but well suited for the low water patterns I tie. Overall I would give the product a mid grade. Fine for small to medium patterns.

deep purple

Reviewer: A viewer from Rehobeth, AL US

The purple tail I received was VERY dark purple, which is OK in a lot of flies. I gave it a quick wash in soap and water, and a lot of extra dye came out. Should be fine, and the hair length on this purple tail was exceptionally long. Made some excellent Clouser Purple Darters.

good and bad

Reviewer: A viewer from Rehobeth, AL US

I ordered four in various colors, and the quality was inconsistent. The quality of hair is good, fine textured and wavy- just what you'd expect. The hair length ranged from quite long to very short compared to past calf tails I have had. One of the four tails had an obnoxious odor. I mean REALLY bad when I opened the bag. We're used to bucktails and calftails having some odor, but this one smelled as if it hadn't been cleaned or processed at all. Took it outside and washed it in antibacterial soap and dried it thoroughly, we'll see if it's fit to bring back into the house. Would be nice if we could get calf tails without the bone in... but I've never seen them. <i>JSFF replies: Sorry about the odiferous tail. We don't open bqgs before shipping natural materials, so poorly tanned pieces can slip past us. But feel free to let us know about the problem and we'll ship a replacement, no questions asked.</i>
