Default Fly cast without flies is great, but...

When I cast with flies I get no distance.

I am fishing a tfo bvk 8wt 9ft with WF8F line. I tied on a 2x tippet, add a size 4 AO, add about 16" of line to that and drop a size 6 prince. I also use a small bubble indicator.

I am having a terrible time casting any distance. When I take off the flies/bubble, I can shoot 80-100ft no problem. Can anyone help me to figure out why, when I add the flies/bobber, I can only shoot about 30ft, or get tangled up. Seems like there is a weight issue.. thanks a ton!
