Bucktail tying problem

Being a "rookie" wannabe fly tyer...I've got a problem. Although I'm keeping things simple, sticking to mostly clousers...the bucktail that I'm tying with isn't laying flat, in line with the hook. Some of it is sticking out just about a 45 degree angle. Any "secrets" or "tricks"? Do I have to make an effort to use super straight bucktail? Or if it is slightly curved, should I make the curve face the hook?

I can only imagine the questions that will come up concerning flies requiring a little finesse.

Thanks, Doug B.
