I like Wrke's cast choice as well, but failing that right hand up reverse (reach across) snap-t or single spey will work for those who don't like to swap hands.

Regardless of which hand up, snap-T gives a sharper direction change, 90 degrees is easy whereas single spey wastes less time and energy but is best cast 70 degrees out or less.

Unless you are Simon, then 180 degree change of direction is no problem with a single spey as he demonstrated at the Clave!!

Downstream wind = Double Spey
Upstream wind = Uni or single Spey.

thanks. i think the wind, current, sink tip and weighted fly proved to be too much for my skill set. i would have been better off throwing a 250gr teeny, but then i wouldn't have learned any thing...right? at least the schoolie stripers were kind.:)

If you're throwing a sink tip and heavy fly, a left hand circle cast is probably your best choice.
Good luck.
