Another method I have used is one which lefty Kreh has shown... If you are right handed and the wind is coming to your right (left if left Handed).... Strip out 40 to 60 feet of line... and then "side cast " low into the wind..about only 30 feet of line..that's all you need. If done right, the wind will not blow the side casted line into you...once the rod is loaded with only that short line...one or two false side casts...IMMEDIATLY bring the rod hand up to the side of your head as you begin the forward cast...done high.... the line will then blow harmlessly over your head and out to the left...but as the wind grabs it it will result in a type of parachute cast... sort of a long high arc out in front of you.
