RECOMMENDATION FOR TRAVELING WITH SALTWATER FLIES | PART 4

TRAVELING WITH SALTWATER FLIES
PART 4 

Here’s a great solution for traveling with saltwater flies for domestic and international travel. While T.S.A. regulations do not technically prohibit bringing fishing flies in your carry-on luggage, we know that if one security agent decides that they have a problem with you bringing flies or your fly boxes on board in your carry-ons, what can you do?  And if you do check all of your flies, and your bags are lost or delayed, then you’re really in trouble – especially if you’re traveling to a destination that does not sell or provide flies. With that in mind, we recommend a very easy and simple solution, and we’ve used this system all over the world for years.

Take a small assortment of flies (maybe in a small box or a zip-lock bag) and load enough flies for a single
day of fishing; maybe 12 – 18 flies total. Create a very basic assortment that will allow you to fish for a day if your checked luggage is delayed by the airline. Then, pack the rest of your flies in your checked luggage where they will be safe and problem-free. If everything arrives, then you will already have a “go-to,” shirt-pocket selection sorted and ready for wading the flats on day one.
