Default Re: Wind Casting

I think 15mph is tough, and 20 is about the max I want to deal with. When dealing with really nasty wind, try to set it up to where you're casting straight downwind, and use a roll cast with a big loop. The wind will catch the loop as its unrolling and make fairly long casts pretty simple.

Double hauling is a vital tool to fight the wind, but worthless if you can't tighten up your casting loop.
