Most common is off the bend of the first hook. You can vary that by tying off the eye of the first hook. I put split shot about 18" up from first fly on a nymph rig. But on a dry dropper, just var the length of the tippet for the dropper. If you are getting tangles, try slowing down and wait for the line to straighten all the way out before changing directions. You will have to make larger loops. Also, try casting slightly to the side so as not to hook yourself. Roll cast will be another way, but be sure to lift the rod all the way up till the line drops behind you to get a large loop.
