Fishpond Dakota Carry-on Rod & Reel Case
The Fishpond Dakota Carry-on Rod & Reel Case is a must have for those of us that travel with our fly rods and reels. It's well made a well thought out design. Plenty of room for up to 4 9' 4 piece rods and tubes. Adjustable dividers leave plenty of room for reels, fly boxes, leaders & spare spools, etc. Perfect to carry-on aircraft.
Only one negative, Fishpond should have made the case about 1.5" longer. If your rod is 9' with fighting butt the rod case will not fit. Leave the tube at home and the rod stored in its sock fits no problem.
I'm updating my review. Relating to rods with a fighting butt, it seems to only be an issue with Loomis tubes. My Scott 9' Radain with fighting butt fits just fine.
