Google "dry dropper rig" for ways to rig.
A dropper can be a nymph, wet, emerger or another dry.

I found some articles and videos on using and rigging droppers. I like to keep things simple and the dropper idea is just too complicated for me. If I used it, I could see the nymph causing the dry to sink and I could see my leader getting all tangled up. I think I will pass on the dropper and just fish one fly at a time. I Know many will disagree, but everyone can fish anyway they want as long as it is legal and you have fun with it. I would never tell anyone not to use a dropper, I just won't use them myself.

I am also concerned about the tangling.

It's not nearly as bad as you think it is. Give it a shot.

Due to severe budget cuts and economic down turn the light at the end of the tunnel has been turned off...

I stay on the porch and play my banjo. But I do like to get out and fish sometimes.

Poor quality materials and tools are destined to discourage beginner and experienced tiers and cause greater expense when the time comes to replace them.
Fly tyers can be masters at making things complicated!

I would imagine the even rigs are more prone to tangling?

This is something I keep trying to make myself do because I've been told by many a guide it's well worth the effort, but, when I'm there on the water and faced with a choice between "keep screwing around with rigging" or "start fishing", so far I've always chosen the latter. I probably need to work on that.
