I think I understand. The "flatter" the fly, the less wind resistance...as long as you keep it parallel to the "wind" and it is not on an angle; otherwise, the wind might get a hold of it and make things worse...maybe?

Shorten the tippet. Good idea!

Speaking of, I tried using a furled leader like these: Streamside Leaders .

Okay? Or bad idea? I seem to have better luck getting a straight cast using one of these leaders but maybe I am imagining things. And maybe they are not good in certain conditions and circumstances.
