The curse!

One problem with several flies on long leaders is tangles like you rarely see them...

As mentioned in the article, you take it easy, cast with large open loops and use the wind to your advantage, having it from the back or from your "good" side, meaning on the opposite shoulder of your casting side. If you are a right hand caster a wind from the rear left will be a great help. And don't be too ambitious. Start with two flies and a shorter leader setup, and you will make things easier to yourself.

How do you cast/present to avoid tangles?
Many thanks Rick
