Default Hanging up in Lily Pads

So I'm pretty new to bass on the fly. I love fishing in the weeds and lily pads with my bait caster with 40lb braid so I wanted to try some thing similar with my fly rod. I know I can't pull my fly right across the tops like with my bait caster so I've been trying to fish mainly the edges. Only problem is my accuracy isn't the best so I sometimes land in the pads. When this happens I feel like I hang up in the pads every time even when its only one or two pads. Some of my poppers have weed guards and they still hang up. Does anyone have any advise on avoiding these hang ups or un snagging them easily?
