Airflo Micro Poly Backing still remains our top selling backing due to its durability, smoothness and low diameter. It is our preferred backing for use when loading customer's lines in store.

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 keep your fly line connected to the reel 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 a stronger backing line like this Micropoly version. 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.

Airflo Micro Poly Backing Benefits:

This low stretch, low diameter Dacron backing is completely rot proof and very easy to release from knots or even a blind splice.
The Hi Vis fluorescent orange colour allows you to follow the run of the fish and helps keeps you in control.
Available in 20lb and 30lb breaking strains.

airflo poly backing
used many times, does everything I want. Review by geoffg (Created 30/07/2014)
Nice bright, fairly thin
Good backing. I only use it for filling up my spools - haven't yet managed to fight a fish into the backing. Maybe I should try and catch bigger ones?
In the middle my roll of backing had a knot - slight manufacturing defect in the line.

Product as expected
Product as expected, yet to use in anger Review by Martin (Created 30/11/2013)
Excellent product
Excellent quality backing for a fair price. I particularly like the coating which makes handling easier when attaching to the fly line and also forms a nice soft base on the reel for the line to sit on. Review by Highlander1951 (Created 05/10/2013)
