The Art of Speycasting
"Spey-O-Rama" 2004 video has a nice presentation showing single hand spey casting with an indicator and shot. The spey cast has some real advantages, with a single hand or double hand rod. One is that the shot is not passing your head or rod, so less chance of a disaster on connection. A second, is that there might be less tendency for the tangles you have been experiencing. Give it a try. Of course that also means that you need to learn how to spey cast, if you do not already have that technique.
Practice is about increasing your repertoire of ways to recover from your mistakes. Joann C. Gutin
