Just wondering if some of you more 'experienced' fly fishers could tell me something.

 

Is it better to use a roll cast or side arm cast in 70km winds? :lol:

 

Just tired of having all this line swirling around my head.

Any cast that keeps your head from bleeding.

 

I cast with my downwind arm in a side wind and rollcast (when practical) when the wind is coming directly from behind me.

 

You'll find that if you concentrate on casting well, the wind plays a much smaller role. Tight loops and efficient power will minimize the wind - learning to cast with both hands lets you move the line away from the pain zone when required.

 

Don't fight the wind - just lower your expectations for what a 'good' cast looks like. :)
