RE:Overlining and crosswinds

I will always wear glasses for any wind or no wind and especially at night. I agree that night casting slows you down and you go more with feel than sight, and we all know that distance casting is less critical at night anyway.. But one thing I will do at night is bring my clear lens plastic protective gasses or goggles. The same ones I use cutting my lawn or using my chain saw. This gives me the protection I need and has no effect on my night vision. Also, in reponse to Juro's first message above of some time ago... If you try Lefty's over head cast you will never have to load the rod fully for cross winds.
