Sweeping Hyzer or Anny in Strong Tailwind

I needed these shots last week and had to settle for laying up. The wind was just pushing everything straight. What's the secret?

I tried that and the disc struck the tree directly in front of me.

I think you're talking about a tailwind here, it sounds like you might have some nose angle issues. With the wind at your back you really have to get the nose down if you want to get the benefit of the wind. If it's hitting the top of the disc it'll just get pushed down and will tend not to fade out.

I'm definitely talking about tailwind. Maybe I'm trying to throw the disc high to compensate for the wind and getting the nose up. I throw flat pretty good, but for the past month I've been working more on my angles. It seems harder for me to throw nose down on an angle, especially hyzer.
