Best items I have ever found,

"I make a lot of hair jigs for crappie and white bass and Orvis calf tails out fished all the others I have tried.
Longer fur on tails make it easy to tie with no waste. I have even been catching bluegill with them.
Thanks Orvis - I'll be back

"THESE ARE A MUST HAVE ITEM AS WELL FOR ALL THE S.W. PATTERNS I TIE AND EVEN THE FRESHWATER ONES,WE ALL KNOW YOU CANT TIE HALF THE FRESHWATER DRYS WITHOUT THEM AND ORVIS DOES HAVE SOME OF THE BEST I HAVE SEEN AND THE PRICE CANT BE BEAT THEY ARE EASILY A $1.50 CHEAPER FROM ORVIS JUST ONE MORE REASON TO CHOOSE ORVIS"
