Cortland Micron is the standard by which all fly line backing has been judged for more than 50 years. World famous for its tight, round braid, smooth low-friction finish and stretch-resistant performance, Micron is manufactured from premium Dacron fibers. Unlike looser, flat braids, Micron comes with zero twist, is virtually tangle-free and knots perfectly every time. Ask any fly angler who sees their backing more than most, and they’ll tell you they use Micron — every time.
Spool: 250 yards
*Note: If you are buying any reel from us and you would like us to spool the backing and / or fly line for you, we are more than happy to do so at no charge. Either email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or make a note in the comments section of checkout.
If you need a different size or color, let us know. Cortland does make a 1,000yd and 2,500-yard spool option but we do not normally stock those.
