A Cautionary Tale:

Dubai airport; baggage security check. All my fly reels and lines are safely packed in the hold, but I have a big Stella in my hand carry to ease the overweight burden. Didn’t even consider it could be an issue, I’ve done it a hundred times. But guess what? They peeled off 300 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 some of those Switchbox thingies…” Really funny. Especially because I was heading out, not homeward bound; and that stuff is pricey. If you want your reels to fly with the humans, guys, do yourself a favour and get yourselves some Switchboxes
