Hello all. I am new to fly fishing and have recently purchased a starter kit to see if I like it. Knowing what all gear that is needed has been a little overwhelming, but I am keeping at it. My kit only came with tippet and float line and I was told that I need backing line also. Is this true? Any other advice will be greatly appreciated, especially on the essential gear to get started. I am teaching myself through reading and videos, so I will probably be asking a lot more questions. Thank you for any help and advice.
