Transporting fishing rod

Currently, it appears the airlines are placing stricter restrictions on the size and amount of bags one can check in during flights.  Most airlines allow for 1 bag to be checked during International Flights free of charge.  High fees are then enforced for additional baggage.  Transporting fishing rods can be a chore.  Not only due they use up your free baggage, but many airlines now have size restrictions.  What I have been doing is to use quality 2 piece fishing rods and pack them in a Plano Side-By-Side Rifle Case.  The case is lockable and airlines approved.  It has side by side compartments of which I place all rods in one side and fishing tackle in the other side, thus having a checked bag and not paying the high fees.  This particular case is 53in x 12in x 6in which allows for lots of room.  So, before paying additional baggage fees on your next fishing trip, consider a side by side rifle case!
