I'm sure you will do great, because a natural skeptic and good observer is the perfect person to learn a technique like this. I'm not able to articulate it well, but the key is in the animation and presentation of the cast. I read that wet fly fisherman of the past fished up to six wet flies in a cast. If I tried that I would be found on the river tied in my own mess of flies!
Don't rely on my account of it, as I am a beginner myself. I strongly recommend the Wotton DVD, Wet Fly Ways. I would send you mine but I gave it to my brother. This shows some of the key methods of wet fly fishing in action, with a professional guide as "student" asking Davy Wotton questions that you or I would ask. It is a great, I mean really great, lesson on Wet Fly Fishing. The fish caught in the DVD nicely illustrate the effect of the method. None of my ramblings does this approach justice. Armed with the DVD, you might take to it like a duck to water. See it and try.
