Vince,

1: what breaking strain backing should i get i'm looking at 30lb as i want to be safe but is this overkill lol

2: what breaking strain tippert flurocarbon should i get to begin with this i have no idea about or should i get a varitey if so what ones do you advise

3: i have seen some blue fly lines but they all seem to be intermediate and really want a floating line (i know i'm wiered but want a unusall colour fly line as most fly fishers i have seen alll seem to have yellow or mint green lines which i find kinda dull and boring no offence toall those who use them ) so if anyone knows wherei can get blue or another bright uncommon colour would be great (End Quote)

(Answer)

1. I am a fan of heavy backing and never using a heavier leader than the backing.

2. Very much dependant on the situation,(warning) fluorocarbon can be pricey so I wouldn't get carried away with too many spools. For trout I would want 6X & 7X and would rely on Maxima mono for most other needs. (streamers and such)

3. I am a stealth freak so I use all gray or dark olive lines for my fishing. They tend to be a little less reflective while in the air. Remember we aren't fishing for blind cave dwellers here.

Hope that helps a bit
