The Story

Orvis fly line backing is braided Dacron on spools, precision processed with uniform strength. 30-lb. test is great for steelhead, salmon, bonefish, stripers, and more. 20-lb. test is for trout, bass, and most freshwater fishing.

Made in USA.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to get on reel and great color This is the perfect amount for my Euro-nymphing reel. The bright color helps to easily show I am into my backing. This really helps when fishing light tippets. Combine this with other Orvis Euro-nymphing feat and you will have a great day on the water.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great backing but incomplete. With the exception of your Yorktown store I usually like to put on the backing myself. I was going to order some more for the next season but I see you are no longer offering 12lb. C'mon Orvis, I can't be the only guy that used it. On a personal note, I've got 12lb on all three of my 3wt's and an 8ft 4wt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just right. Thanks for the 200 yd spool I had to charge my Lamson Guru reel with 200 yds of backing. After checking a couple of other vendors, I returned to Orvis because they sold a 200 yd spool. The spool is the same size as the fly line spool, so that was a plus. And it looks great, a jolly day glow look with my Orvis Hydro Bass taper in #8!
