RE:Overlining and crosswinds
Several years ago I was fishing under the conditions you are talking about. Rather than move my skiff to fish a good looking spot I made the mistake of trying to force my fly through a cross wind.Foolishly assuming I could cast and duck I made one false cast on the second false cast the wind gusted. I saw the fly coming but the thing came so dam fast I only had time to turn my head the hook buried deep just under my left eyebrow. It is a foolish and dangerous game to play.
