For backing I think 50lb spectra has become almost the standard. Airflow and Power Pro are two brands. Because it is so thin I would recommend using a bimini knot and then creating a surgeons loop to create two loops for connecting a loop to loop connection to the fly line. Another good leader material I have had good luck with is Airflow Sightfree G3. Really thin and knots well.
