Made in USA.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mediocre I use it for Wullf patterns but it has too much black on it. Best hair near base so not a good tail

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tying material The Orvis calf tails are very high quality and great for tying flies like the crazy charlie and christmas island special. The hair is fine enough for these ties and very consistent.
