I have a 3 piece 7' 6" Butter Stick rod that I am going to take fishing tomorrow on my pontoon boat. I have a p/u truck with a 5' bed and I don't want to carry the rod hanging out the back end. To save time, I setup the reel with line, leader, tippet and fly. So, is there a correct way to separate the rod into 3 pieces so that it's quick to re-assemble when I get to the lake? Rubber bands? or?
