Question Casting in the wind.

What is the best method for casting a large fly into the wind?
I use an Orvis 9-wt Silver Label (9'8") with a WF-9-F Wonderline.
We were on the break-wall of Lake Erie near Conneaut, Ohio and I was having a heck of a time dealing with the wind.
I tried casting side-arm; roll-cast; two-handed, I then tried double-hauling and that seemed to get me a little more distance, maybe I need to look into shooting heads for my system...
Under less formable conditions, a 60+ foot cast with heavy flies is easy for me, but I was facing a brisk Canadian wind head-on.
Any suggestions?
