Sean - you make a very good point regarding multi-piece rods and travelling by commercial plane to remote locations; I'll be happy when the tube comes out in the luggage carousel in Sarasota, and then again when I arrive back in Newark. I'm bringing a 7-piece 6-wt. rod along, checked in my baggage. I'M PSYCHED!!! Hopefully the fish will be cooperative... Report to come next Tuesday... Thanks to all for your help and input! Juro, I owe you one!

I'm back. I have to admit I chickened out at the last minute and threw my reels in a travel bag which I carried. The rods went fine in the Cabela's Stowaway system but I just couldn't bring myself to put the reels in the luggage and take the chance on some unscrupulous handler walking off with $1200 worth of MY reels. (Not that most of them would have any idea what they had in their hands) The B------s did tear up one of the zippers on a brand new travel bag.
Lots of feathers,
