Here's how to put everything together, rod, reel, backingand line together:

- Retrieve your backing, and pull off about 20-30 years (100 feetor so).
- Pull off about 2-3 feet of your fly line and tie the fly lineto the backing using an albright knot.
In this regard, how does a fly rod work?
The fly line is the weight in the casting method.By using a casting technique that allows the fly rod andfly line to work together, the weight of the line isused to carry the fly out in front of you by transferringthe energy built up in the line down through it and out towards theend of the line.
If you're fishing streamers, 15 inches oftippet is plenty. You don't need theflexibility with streamers that you need with dryflies and nymphs because you are alwaysfishing a tight line, thus the reason you can getaway with a shorter tippet.
