For years I've been looking for a way to carry multiple rods safely without the bulk and weight of all those tubes. This case is the answer. I have mine loaded with 7 rods ranging from a 7' 9" 4-weight to a 9' 8-weight, as well as 8 reels to cover floating or sinking situations -- and there's still room left over for some fly boxes and other accessories! Orvis brags about its convenience as an airplane carry-on for destination trips, and I'm sure that's true. However, I like it for the at-home convenience right here in New England as well. With just this and a gear bag for vest and waders, everything I use most frequently is neatly and compactly stowed and available. In no time at all I can drop them in the car trunk, and I'm ready for just about any local freshwater or light saltwater opportunity I might happen upon.,I have been pining for this case for several years. 2-3 rod tubes and reels plus lines and flies in my regular luggage has been awkward. My Gear now packs quite nicely.,My wife bought this for me as an early birthday present and I had an opportunity to use it for the first time this past weekend. All I can say why didn't I get one of these sooner?
Besides being very well constructed, I like having all my rods and reels and other essentials all together as opposed to carrying multiple rod tubes and reel cases. My wife made me a couple rod sacks to keep my rod pieces together and they fit nicely in the space provided. Not to mention being able to adjust the space designated for your reels, spare spools and extra fly boxes.
This case is a winner and every fly fisher should have one.,I just received this for an upcoming trip this summer to Montana. Great for guides. Nice look to it I might add. Only drawback would be that st tight with rod tubes that are not exactly 31 inches, example, the Hydros rod tube which is discontinued does not fit in this pack. Those are great rods. Just barely fits a 9 foot rod tube with nothing to spare. Other than that if it meets your expectations for your tube, great. Another consideration is that I am not sure you cannusemths as a carry on in the plane's overhead luggage area due to restrictions in size so measure and call your carrier first. Hopefully will hold up to the gorillas who load the planes cargo area. They can be brutal.,I purchased the larger for my 10' fly rods. I have the smaller for 9' bonr fish rods. I've taken it twice to Christmas Island. I keep all my rods, reels & flys with me all the time. It is easy to carry, sturdy, & fit in the overhead bins. Great product.
