Hatch Premium 68# Saltwater Fly Line Backing


At Hatch, weve 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.

Why only one size backing?

Take a look at the chart below. You'll see that the diameter of Hatch backing is equal to or less than our competitors products. Now look at the lb/kg ratings. Notice right away that our material is stronger than everyone else's. The diameter of the line determines how much backing builds up on the arbor of a reel, not the pound rating.

So, a single diameter line can be used effectively in all fly-fishing applications fresh or saltwater.
