Question jfbasser, got a question about backing,,

There’s salt and freshwater fly lines sooo is there such a thing for backing or is backing just that backing. One backing can be used for both salt and freshwater ???

This wasn't directed to me, but the answer is that backing is backing. Generally: Dacron 20# for eight weight and under. 30# for 9 weight and up. Brand doesn't seem to matter. Color is also not so important. White is a little thinner. Some think that bluefish will strike a white backing.

Thanks Eddie. That was my thinking but wanted to make sure. Didn't want to buy the wrong backing.
