What are the rules these days? Can i bring my 4 piece in case as carry-on? Can i bring fly boxes w/ flies/hooks etc as carry-on?
I'm headed to FL and want to bring my 7 wt but would rather not check a bag.

Fishing Rods are permitted as carry-on and checked baggage. However, please check with your air carrier to confirm that it fits within their size limitations for carry-on items.Fishing Rods are permitted as carry-on and checked baggage. However, please check with your air carrier to confirm that it fits within their size limitations for carry-on items. Ultimately, it is the carrier's decision as to whether or not it can be transported as carry-on baggage.
Fishing equipment should be placed in your checked baggage. Some tackle equipment can be considered sharp and dangerous. Expensive reels or fragile tackle such as fly's should be packed in your carry-on baggage.

works for me with united. Always bring reels and rods on with you. Because they pose an easy target for anyone stealing luggage (just like pelican cases, never check those either). Depending on how many rods that you decide to carry, they make cases that hold multiple rods. In the past i have just put a rod tube in each side of my pack which has holders for them.
