Can I use 45 lb test backing for fly fishing for lighter fish?

I've got a 5 weight rod/reel and 5 floating WF line. I need backing. There's some 45 lb test cheep. Can I use it?

According to the box: "45 lb. line fits in the space of 125 yds. of conventional 20 lb." Will this work on my setup or should I throw in the extra money and go for a smaller backing?

Thanks!

Mono and flyline backing are of different diameter, and flyline backing is usually dacron. I would spend the extra couple of dollars and get the dacron backing. Here's why:

When mono stays "fixed" on a spool for an extended period of time it will develop a memory (i.e. coils) and will not retain its breaking stregnth (even though 45 pound test is really strong).

Another reason to go with the dacron backing is that you are not going to get a smooth transition from your flyline to your backing with 45lb test mono. When that fish of a lifetime hits do you really want to chance a clunky knot trying to slither through your snake guides ? Add that to the fact fly rod guides aren't really made for mono and you could risk damaging them.

To me, it's just not worth trying to save a couple of dollars.
