Tanning?

FrenchCreek,

I am curious if the two different processes you mentioned have an effect on the hair. I have found that when I go to the fly shop the bucktails with a softer hide also often have the more supple hairs for use in a pattern like a bucktail deceiver, whereas the hard hides seem to have the stiffer more hollow hair. Just curious.
