Re: Line Terminology
No one mentioned that the average fly line is only 90 feet long (some are a little longer).
90 feet isn't very long really. I fish places that I am casting 60 feet to get to fish. Backing is a must. You add that 100 YARDS of backing (that is 300 ft) and you have room to now play, however, that fish takes you through 250 feet of that, it is a good chance (and I say good chance Not a definit) you will loose everything.
