I keep all the loops pinched between my thumb and index finger, with the index finger crooked so I can feel all the loops and keep them from tangling with one another. It works best on big water like the Deschutes in Oregon and Lees Ferry here in AZ, and some of the big Montana rivers I've fished where there is plenty of room for your back cast. For smaller streams or tight conditions, you can just gather smaller loops. It's hard to explain, kind of like dialing a phone number where you struggle to remember the number but you remember the pattern on your keypad as you easily dial it from memory. I guess it just takes a lot of practice.
