Default Re: reel sizing for us warmwater guys:)

I tend to just use whatever matches the rod (or was sold with the combo).

I never require backing and just use it to take up space and keep the fly line from wrapping in tiny, kinky loops on the arbor.

I really don't think fly reels are very important for trout and most warmwater fishing. Just put one on, spool it, and forget about it.
