Re: Too much backing line or Too much fly line?
First off to be real clear I trout fish, so even a 24" bruiser would run what a few hundred feet tops. For me if a reel calls for 80 yards of backing I have them put on 50-55yds. So me I go light on backing. If I fished bigger game I'd opt to have more backing.
