I, too, am a spinner trout fisherman who's taken up the fly rod. I actually started by tying flies and fishing them with a clear float. I think it takes more than practice. I read everything in the library on the subject and one of the books stated that you can't learn it by reading. So, I got a friend to give me some pointers. It really made a difference. Then I practiced and practiced until I could false cast keeping the line parallel to my house gutter. Now I cast fairly well. The next step, is learning how to catch fish. Again, I've read all I can get, but I believe I need to fish with a successful fly fisher to really learn how.
