Default Re: Too much backing line or Too much fly line?

I'am fairly new to the sport but I have never heard anyone suggest cutting the fly line to reduce bulk on a reel. If you do anything, reduce the amount of backing. The other alternative is to get a larger reel that would balance with your rod. Do you require the amount of backing for the type of fish to go after?Can anyone out there tell me if cutting the line is a solution to the issue posted here or have I totally missed the point?Maybe I can learn something new here.
