    I don't know of any restrictions for fishing tackle other than knives obviously. But to be safe, I would not place them in my carry on baggage to be safe. I would check the TSA site for better clarification. Good luck where ever your going.

    Like Toxic said, it will have to be in your checked luggage. When I travel by air and want to take more gear than just a few things I send my stuff ahead of time with UPS, either to a friend or to my hotel. It's pretty cheap, espicially now that airlines are charging for checked bags :( , and I've never had a problem with lost or damaged gear. I like to hunt/fish with my own crap and sometimes trying to fly with it isn't too practical.
     
  4. papaw's right on with mailing them if you can - otherwise - like they said it will have to be in your checked luggage.

    Put your tackle in a hard plastic case and put in your check-in luggage. If you are taking poles, you must have a rigid pole case. Don't take your expensive rods as I've seen too many cases crushed on the ends and the pole tips snapped off.
