Default Re: Backing Strength?

As long as you're using a good backing/line knot, the backing only needs to be stronger than the heaviest tippet that you will ever use.


I watched my fishing partner lose a full line once, but that was because he had a bad knot.
It was fun later that day describing the scene in full to the guy at the fly shop when we went in to get my buddy a new line
