SOMETHING FOR TRAVELLING ANGLERS OF ALL PERSUASIONS TO THINK ABOUT:

Dubai Airport – baggage security check. All my fly reels and lines are safely packed in the hold, but I have a Stella 10000 in my hand carry to ease the overweight burden a little plus because it’s my baby. I didn’t even consider it would be an issue – I’ve done it a hundred times, and guess what? They peeled off three hundred yards of brand new 100lb Power Pro Braid and threw it in the contraband bin. Our head guide throws his head back laughing and says “Hey, man – looks like you should have gotten yourself one of those Omnispool thingies…” Really funny, seeing as that stuff ain’t cheap, plus I was heading out, not home. And also I’m the Sales Director… If you want your reels to fly with the humans , guys, do yourselves a favor and get some Switchboxes.Braid in SecurityUnspooling BraidUnconventionally Conventional
