ROFL! Seriously, of all the good advice given this is the winner. Some times you can deal with the wind with the techniques given. Other times you either get out the eight weight or the spinning rod, or just have beer and wait till the wind subsides. Its why I always throw two or three rods in the truck or boat, and one of them is a spinning rod.
