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

Let me run this one by you. If you shorten that $80 fly line it's destroyed for another application where capacity isn't an issue. If you shorten the backing, the cost is far less if you want to add more at a later date. It sounds to me that the reel is carrying too much backing for what it was designed. If you are after larger fish and need all that backing, get a larger reel. Isn't the issue here that the reel is undersized for the type of fishing intended. Can you help me out here?
