I just returned from a Seattle..Dallas...Buenes Aries...Ushuaia flight with spey rods of max size of 4 pc 13'6".Bought a large Simms duffel[44" long].Went to Home Depot and bought 4" plastc water tube.Put 4 rods in it and put the long rod in a single tube and paled them in bottom og bag and then added waders,boots packs ,flies,etc., etc.That way I did not waste use of a checked rod tube for one of my two pieces of luggage. I used my carryon and my "purse" allocation for camera gear[substantial] , Hardy and Dingley reels,and computer.If I was going somewhere on shorter trip and less in way of rods[i.e. PDX=2rods],I could get away with just that one bag.
