You do not reel.  As your lure hits the brush you jig a few times working the cover and when free from the cover pull the line in with the free hand and repeat , flip to a slightly different spot. You are not reeling. You work vary fast and effeciently this way. Try flippin and pitching to help you catch more fish.
