RE:Bucktail tying problem

Doug:

I only use the top 1/2 of any bucktail. I find those fibers lay flatter and tend to not flare when I crank down on them on the hook. The hair on the lower portion of the bucktail tends to be "more hollow", so I am told and that is why it bends and flares. Give it a shot.....
