Quick-Sight™ Fluorescent Orange Backing

Maintain better control over a hooked fish with this flyline backing.


This high-visibility fluorescent orange flyline backing lets you see the backing in the water when a big fish takes out line in a hurry. Tested extensively by Orvis' saltwater guides, who found the flyline backing helped them know where a fish was and when it was changing direction. The round Dacron backing won't rot or mildew and stores well on the fly reel. Flyline backing available in 20, or 30 lb. test.

    Purchased this backing to put on a Clear Water II reel for a 6wt Orvis Frequent Flyer rod. I like the color contrast and it gives me an indication of where the fish is going. Also will not bury itself like gel spun backing.

    Another Fine Product from Orvis - 4/29/2014
    By: from Louisville Ky

    I'll admit backing isn't the most glamorous part of fly fishing since it hides out barely noticed on your reel and only does it's job when you've got a really frisky fish on the line. But when you need it you really (no pun intended) need it. I love the bright orange color. It's strong well made and affordable. I've done quite a lot of business with Orvis in the past and their service and support is outstanding. Will look forward to doing more business with them

    Best underwrap - 4/11/2014
    By: from Long Island Surf

    I use this as an underwrap when using expensive braid on my surf reel. The larger diameter fills quickly and the orange color looks great.

    Backing - 4/4/2014

    I had this but on my reel for fishing steelhead in the Great Lkaes and it has held up to many strong fish. This backing has more of a backbone than a 30 inch steelhead! Great product and would recommend to anyone.

    The best backing I've ever used. The orange is a differnt color then fly making it easy to see when you are getting into the backing

    It Makes sense - 12/14/2013
    By: from on line

    I've never been lucky enough to hook a fish the took me to the backing. I bought this line because because it looks good and because if I ever do hook a fish that takes a lot of line, color contrast will let me know when I'm getting close to the backing. As long as I'm not using bright orange fly line, it just makes sense to me.

    Not good! - 9/28/2013
    By: from Sweden

    I bought the fluorescent backing from Orvis, I thought it would match the quality of their other products. It was a disappointment. After two fishingtrips in Baltic sea, I took it of and dumped it in the trash bin. It discoloured my fly line and that is not what I expected.
