    The day you need the RIO Dacron Fly Line Backing will be a good day, because that means the fish of a lifetime just slurped your fly and is making an epic run. The strong braided backing is thin but still knots easily and allows you to make blind splice loops.

    • Dacron braided backing has high strength and low stretch
    • Backing is thin but still allows you to make blind splice loops
    • If you're buying a reel or spool and fly line, we'll be happy to rig it up for you, please give us a call at (855)-712-0513 for details

    Awesome Dacron backing that holds up "reely" well. Use a lil UV Knot Sense from LOON when tying the knots to give it just a lil extra security (though it's not necessary). Great color choices. I've used on lots of trout ranging from 6-10lb trout and on lots of 20-30lb carp and it holds up plenty fine!

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    Other than I haven’t caught a fish large enough or that has fought hard enough to get into my backing. Its solid, I have the Sage 4200 Series Fly Reel in a ¾ weight and I didn’t use all of the backing. I still had some left over. I actually think I put on a tad too much since my line starts catching on the reel when I reel the line in all the way. However, that is user error. Rio is the best, I always know I am getting top of the line quality with them. I also purchased the Chartreuse, 20lb/100yd. If you have a lower weight rod/reel combo you wont need anymore than that.

    solid

      Love this backing. I use this on my 8 weight (30 lb) and it's done fine. I've only gotten into my backing a few times and I haven't had any worry about it. I've never used any other backing but Rio's and I guess I've never had an issue so I just stick to what I know works.
