it sounds like you're throwing tailing loops, which is very common. that is why anglers frequently get "wind knots". as lefty kreh maintains, they have nothing to do with wind. pick up one of lefty's books--"advanced fly casting" is a good one... he is very easy to understand, the book is written in plain language. most likely, you are extending the rod tip forward after your speed up and stop--so the line is crashing into itself. at any rate, mr. kreh can explain this better than me... good luck, you have 2 months to practice!
