My grandfather would normally fish 3 winged wets and that's how I first learned to fly fish. It's a deadly but little used technique to this day.
While we used whippy wet fly action 9' cane rods back then, it's not at all difficult to cast a multi-fly rig.
You just need to forget everything that's been drilled into you about tight loops and fast line speed
Yes!!! Wide, open loops traveling slowly enough they don't tangle but fast enough to get full distance from the cast are key.
