Traveling anglers can all relate to the struggle of managing your luggage restrictions when flying, made even more difficult when trying to include a salmon fly rod. The extra cost of sporting baggage just adds to the complexity.
As regular travellers to fishing destinations further afield the team at Fin & Game favour the following two, Mackenzie Atlas and Guideline LXI T-PAC, which are perfect if you are jetting across the world or just down the road.
Both these 6 piece rods break down small enough to fit in the boot of your car and hand baggage allowance, saving you the extra cost airlines charge and also reducing the chances of arriving at your destination with a broken rod.
British Airways advised Fin & Game the cost per flight is £65 to take your fishing rod with you. By placing it in your hold luggage (hand baggage) this cost is eliminated.
The price for travel rods start from £450. Just think after 3.5 fishing trips you will have covered the cost of the rod.
