BACKING LINES

Backing Lines

What is fly line backing?

Fly line backing is the first section of the line, which serves two purposes. 1. It adds line to your arbor (the part of the Reel that holds the line), which makes it easier to reel in your fly line and additionally adds weight to your reel which helps with rod balance and provides for longer casts. 2. It also provides additional length for when fish make longer runs. A typical fly line is about 90′, so if a fish decides to run further than that, backing gives you the extra length.

How do I attach backing to fly line?

To attach backing to a fly fishing line, there are a number of different steps. For expert advice, get in touch today.

Essential in cases when a fish is putting up a long fight or you’re specifically on a mission to catch big ones, fly line backing can save the day. Experienced anglers will tell you that if you get to see your backing line outside of the reel, you are having a good day. If you are planning on reeling in some feisty, big fish or are looking for the fly fishing basics, browse our range of fly reel backing to ensure you never miss a once-in-a-lifetime catch.

Fly fishing backing reel from the fishing experts

As one part of the four essential reels that every fly fishing rod should have, fly reel backing shouldn’t be overlooked. While most smaller fish won’t run out the 100 feet or so of regular fly line, having the insurance of an extra line to reel in any fighters can make all the difference. Whether you prefer ultra-slim, transparent, high-visibility or braided fly line backing, all of our fly fishing backings are tangle- and rot-proof for a premium fishing experience. Find the perfect length and weight of fly line backing to best suit your fishing needs — our range includes 25lbs, 30lbs and 100m, 200m and 300m spools available in various size packs for your convenience.
