Latest re Rod Tubes on Air Canada

I'm flying up to Smithers instead of driving this year. Air Canada/Air Canada Express has let me carry-on spey rod tubes in the past but it's been a few years. Is that still the case? Can someone with recent experience fill me in?

Thanks in advance.

Surfing sucks. Don't try it.

I was up there last week and the overheads were full of rod cases.....

If everybody used shoe horns, they'd catch 'em all on shoe horns.

Its hit and miss. Often dependent on the mood of the attendants/check in attendant.

I'd rather be chasing mykiss or salar...

If I may add on - is it still ok to take fly reels and flies in the hand luggage? Last year, flies were no problem in accordance with their regulations on hook size, but then again they surprised me by restricting the number of hand-warmers they'd allow in the hand luggage...

A little off track and one of the reasons I think the radicals have already won the war. Just remembering the day I flew from Seattle to Washington DC with three bolt action rifles as carry on.

Back on subject: Yes, just depends on the mood of the agents in question.

I suggest putting in your carry on your reels for sure and some tube flies without hooks and then you know you're ok. I have a waterproof pack that I use for something with me in the boat and it works great as a carryon. Hope this might be helpful.
