I guess you are trying to nymph a run in moving water. Work your line out and let it drift down stream. At the end of your drift lift the rod to get your rig moving upstream and then without backcasting flop the whole thing up stream. You should be able to cast 20 feet or so up stream that way. Raise your rod or strip in line as the indicator drifts toward you and do the opposite as it passes by. Set on the slightest movement of the indicator and do not be surprised to pick up fish at the end of the drift as you lift to cast again. Everyone gets a rats nest from time to time but by avoiding back casting you will get fewer.
