Backing line for fly lines

Fly line backing fulfills three main functions for the fly fisherman; it extends the fly line allowing extra distance when casting, it bulks out the reel so your line fills it properly thereby reducing fly line coiling and memory and it provides the extra line length needed for playing a hard running fish.

Modern fly line backing materials provide the perfact combination of performance and reliability, delivering backing lines that are soft, tangle free, strong and reliable, and come in a variety of strengths and diameters so you can fill your fly reel to just the right extent.

We stock a wide range of backing line from budget backing line to ultra fine gel spun backing line including multi purpose braided mono backing line which can be used to make your own braided leader loops and line connector sleeves.
