Read the 4th post down on this thread.I have an old Hardy Featherweight and am going to put a 4WF on it, with 12lb. backing. How many yards of backing? It's really just to fill the reel. I'm using it on an old bamboo rod.
I hear that Trevis,That is a great tool. I always tied pretty nice Albright knots but using that makes a neater job yet.
