for the pic I just got my hand wet and wetted the back end some with some water to get the shape. lol
I have had mine flair out too sometimes when tying um. for the white or bottom part of the fly I tie it in like normal but wrap a couple wraps extra down the shank and then back up basically making a criss cross shape pattern to the thread. you can see it in the pic. that keeps that from flairing some. then flip over your hook and tie in the rest of the colors and flash in front of the eye but on the 1st few wraps don't pull the thread too tight or it will flair the bucktail. make like 3 wraps then give some decent pressuree to cinch it down and some more wrapps to secure it. if that makes any sense at all. kinda hard to explain I guess. just keep practicing it and you will get good at it. if ya screw it up just chop it down and reuse the hook. thats what I do.. once wet it should some out looking like a natural minnow shape. good luck.
