Default In-air mends

When float fishing on the Arkansas River last week, I needed to make an upstream mend. The on-the-water mend jerked my fly and spooked fish that were near it, so I needed to make an "in-air" mend. I tried a reach cast, which worked some of the time, but I really wanted a mend that would flip a mid-section of the line upstream. Doesn't sound that hard, right?

Well try as I might, I couldn't do an upstream, in-air mend. Does anyone have iny instructions or hints? Thanks.
