I have made 50+ flights this year, which is a typical year, as a consulting engineer. I have had rulers and other insignificant items taken, while I have seem needle nose cutters allowed on the same flight.
The application of the rules has some inconsistenies.
I have been able to get flies on, and had to check them.
I have never heard of lines being not allowed, but I believe there was something taken from me once, as I could use it to strangle someone (but then again, could I not use a belt for this this?)
I believe the plane from Smithers is often a DASH which has limited space anyway, and you will not be able to carry on the rods (plane side check). I would suggest you check it.
Good fishing on the Nass, or whatever river you will be on.
