Default Re: Q about backing

In a word, yes. For a couple reasons.

1: If you hook into something big you will be glad you have it.
2: It is easier on the actual flyline as without backing the line will coil in much smaller loops.
3: It is dirt cheap.
4: If the reel is spooled to capacity, each turn of the handle will bring in more line.
