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.
