Travel Rod

Hi me again,
Just to ask, if there are any travel fly rods( 4sections, in tube) you could recommend me buying, that would be ok to use on the Bow please? Thinking of spending about 70(think about $140 can).
I want 5/6wt if possible, and maybe a tube for it to travel in?
My father-in-law is taking a holiday in Canmore, Canada in a couple of weeks time and He said that he would pick one up for me if that was possible? Then bring it back, saying that it was his? So no duty or tax?
Any body got any idea's, will be gratfully recieved.
Many thanks,
gibbos1

I'd check out the St Croix Triumph rods. There's a few that meet your requirements. The format of this data is:
Blurb, Model #, Length, Line Weight, Pieces, Action, Rod Weight in Ounces, Grip Style, Price ($US)
New for 2007 T805.4 8' 5 4 Mod. Fast 3.3 2 $110.00
New for 2007 T865.4 8' 6" 5 4 Mod. Fast 3.5 2 $110.00
New for 2007 T905.4 9' 5 4 Mod. Fast 3.6 2 $110.00
New for 2007 T906.4 9' 6 4 Mod. Fast 3.9 2 $110.00

I own 3 St Croix rods (or 4?) and love all of them!

Just my two cents, but I would go 6 piece. Its way more "travel" than the 4 and I have not noticed any difference in performance. I would stay away from 5 though as you can never break the rod in half for storage!

As far as options, LL bean and TFO are around your price range.
