I read in your book to upline when casting sinking lines. Do you do this when using clear, intermediate lines as well?

All modern rods will cast at least one line size more and less. For example, an 8-weight rod should be able to cast both a 7- and a 9-weight line. If I am casting short distances in the wind, I often opt for one size lighter line, but most of the time I find that with intermediates (they shoot extremely well) the line size the rod calls for is best. I rarely overline a rod with a clear, intermediate line.
