I always overline my bass rod. When I fly fish for Bass, I am usually making relatively short casts to structure and stripping it back pretty close to the rod. A Bass or clouser line one line size heavier than the rod, loads the rod with a lot less line out and makes it easier to cast short distances.

I do this with a tip flex Orvis rod and am not sure how it would work on a more moderate action rod, so I would borrow a line from someone and try it first.
