Orvis fly line backing is made from braided white Dacron® on spools, precision processed with uniform strength.
Some game fish, like salmon, steelhead, bonefish, tarpon, and many other saltwater species, will take a fly and run for up to 200 yards before you can slow them down. Since a fly line is only about 100 feet long, there has to be some kind of insurance beyond the fly line so you stay connected. Fly line backing is a thin, strong line that is attached to the fly reel at one end and the fly line at the other. For most trout fly fishing, 50 yards is plenty. When fly fishing for saltwater speed demons like bonefish or permit, the fish of a lifetime might take 200 yards of fly line so you need to be prepared.
Can’t decide what to fish for? Our AirCel general-purpose floating line is a simple, no-frills, weight-forward floating fly line perfect for throwing dry flies, nymphs, and streamers to trout, bass, or panfish in streams, rivers, or lakes. It may not cost a lot, but that certainly doesn’t mean the AirCel won’t get the job done.
