... all of my fishing is with a 4 or 5 wt rod, a 4 wt line, a 5 foot thread furled leader, and about 3-4 feet of 4X tippet to cast a large hopper or stonefly pattern.

No amount of practice will solve the difficulty of fishing that set up in anything more than a gentle breeze.

Strategy is not an option fishing that rig in the wind - it is a requirement.
