Corey's Calf Tail - This was created by Ralph Corey of Port Rapids, MI prior to 1929.  It has been said that the first Corey Calf tails used a tied down wing and is considered to be one of the first patterns that used hair wings.  It can be tied and fished using any color dubbing.  First designed as a brook trout pattern, it has been successfully used to catch brown and rainbow trout as well.

Hook - Mustad 94840, 8-16

Thread - black

Tail - white calf tail

Wings -white calf tail, tied as a single, upright wing and forward facing (a modern variation uses calf tail tied upright and divided)
