    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?

    Listen to wichaka. Rigging this way there is no doubt as to how much space you have between the reel and the line. Doing this there is no need to rob yourself of backing that you hopefully need one day on that fish of a lifetime and you should never have to worry much about the line self-destructing by rubbing on the reel cage. This rubbing also means additional drag... another good way to lose that dream fish.
    The downsides are that the method wichaka suggests needs lots of room (best done out side) and you end up doing a whole lot of reeling to get everything back together.
