How do you bring a fishing rod on a plane?
Rods and reels are permitted as checked luggage and are also allowed as carry-on luggage by T.S.A. The only hold up is that rod tubes can sometimes not meet size requirements set by airline carriers for carry-on items. Make sure you check with your carrier to make sure that you can bring a rod tube in your baggage.
If you are traveling internationally, you will need to make sure that you have a valid passport before you leave the United States. You will also need a visa to enter the country. If you do not have the proper visa, it will be necessary to apply for a waiver from the Department of Homeland Security.
Can you bring fishing lures through TSA?
Taking a box full of large hooks, lures and flies is bound to give you trouble at airport security. They might let you in the plane, but only after a 30 minute argument with the security officer who’s probably ignorant about fishing and why you need a fishing license. The best way to catch a fish is to use a fly rod or fly reel.
The best fly rods and fly reels are made of stainless steel, which means that they won’t rust or corrode over time. If you’re going to fly fish, you’ll want a rod and reel that will last for a long time, so make sure you get one that has a lifetime warranty.
Can I take a fishing pole on American Airlines?
2 rods and a gear bag. 2 rods, 2 gear bags, and 2 equipment bags will not count towards your checked baggage allowance. If you have more than 2 checked items, you will be charged the full allowance for each item, regardless of the number of items you carry.
For example, if you are travelling with 3 items of clothing, a hat and a pair of shoes, but only have one checked bag, then you would only be able to carry one item of each type, even though you can carry 2 of them. The same is true for items that are not checked, such as a backpack, briefcase, or laptop computer.
Checked baggage allowances are subject to change without notice, so check with your airline or travel agent for the most up-to-date information.
