Default Re: Casting into the wind

I always assume that if I'm going fishing, the wind is going to blow... it did today !

A couple of things that nobody touched on.
Skinny lines cut through the wind better than fat lines.
Heavy lines cut through the wind better than light lines.
Unfortunately those two thing don't usually go together... except in the case of full sinking lines

When I'm surf casting and the wind is really howling .... a 10wt full sink line is about only thing that works
