Default Re: Casting into the wind

I'm a beginner as well and was faced with a pretty strong headwind the other day. What I found to work the best was to lower my casting arm closer to the water and add a double haul. I also found that on making my presentation the wind would put a lot of slack into my line so what I started doing was striping some line in right before it hit the water. This would get most the slack out of the line and make a nice straight lay instead of one that looked like a snake.
