Re: Casting into the wind
Fichy took the words right out of my mouth. Wind is a huge factor where I fish, and the best solution I've found is a shortened leader and a weighted fly with as little wind resistance as possible. Unfortunately, using weighted flies on windy days can be a risky business. All it takes is a sudden change in wind direction and you've got a pierced ear, (or worse) whether you want one or not. It can be tough to take when you're on a trip or on vacation with limited time, but there are days when fly fishing is flat-out impossible.
