Nick, in my very limited albie experience, I would say standard fly backing is more than adequate. After my 2 piece fly rod became a 3 piece I landed my first on a spin rod with 40# fluoro leader and 15# line.

I have a theory that the key to landing these fish, if you're casting to breaking fish, is to use a fly & fly line that keep the fly on top.
