Giantfish, this is an excellent question to which there is never one good answer. Depending on the situation, you can respond to wind in different ways. For example, learn to execute a double haul. It helps generate much higher line speeds and thus can cut through the wind better. Another option I've found to help on occasion is to cast sidearm as low to the water as you can. Windspeed will be stronger higher off the ground. Also, don't overlook using the wind to your advantage. With the wind at your back, try a roll cast and you will get plenty of distance....
