DetailsDue to it's natural hollow braid, it can be slipped over your fly line to give a smooth 'no bump' join.
Fly line backing serves two basic purposes...
The first is to fill up your reel so that your fly line completes the filling of your reel to within, say, 1/8th inch of the spool capacity.
The second is to still stay connected when a big fish strips of all your fly line!
For most purposes, the Airflo No Frills backing is perfectly adequate as a trout backing line. If you require a stronger line, say for salmon fishing,then you should consider another backing line.
If you are using small reels and have limited space for the backing but require a long length of it for big fish - then, again, you require one of the more advanced backings.
If you want to reduce tangling with backing and have a seamless, no-knot connection then choose one of the braided backings.

- Braided backing for loop connections
First class service from Stirling Angling Centre order arrived next day. Found the braid quite hard and difficult to thread Salmon line into but did make a number of
loops and have landed one fish with finished product. Review by Frosty (Created 12/03/2011)
