At Hatch, we’ve created a backing material that has the touch and feel of Dacron combined with the strength and diameter of Gel Spun in a single 8 braid PE line for use in all fly fishing applications.
At a strength of 68lb/30kg and a diameter of .015″ / 37mm, Hatch has created a backing that is suitable for both saltwater and freshwater application. As the diameter and not the poundage of the line determines how much backing is built up, the premium braided backing will serve the needs of even the most demanding fly angler looking to maximize the amount of backing for his/her reel.
*Please note that we do not sell backing in its original packaging. All backing will be transferred from a larger spool to a generic spool should you wish to purchase backing individually. We apologize for the inconvenience caused.
