RE:Overlining and crosswinds

Unless it is imperative to fish the top, i'd suggest going to a denser line and sticking to the line weight that is best for the rod. If you like to fish a full line (ie, not tips or a shooting head), IMHO, nothing cuts the wind like a very high density (type 4-6), full sinking line, such as the Mastery Uniform Sink.

While we're on the overlining topic, I've found it easier to cast in the dark of night with an overlined rod - it slows things down a bit so your mistakes aren't as critical, and helps you to feel the line better, since you can't see how it is behaving.
