    Doing a lot of traveling this summer, what would be a good and fairly inexpensive way to take along my rods?

    I agree with this. I like the heavy sch40 pipe (PVC). You can :lol: add handles to this by drilling a couple of holes and adding a piece of leather waist belt.
    Either bolt or rivit attachment. Your rods will be well protected.

    I found these really nice rod tubes for both flyrods and spinning/casting gear. They are made by CRYSTAL RIVER at least thats whats embroidried on them! I only paid like 19-20 bucks @ for them too! I don't know if they have a website but you could probably "google" it and find em'.
    Good luck!

    Those cheap, plastic gun cases, the kind with eggcrate foam in them, are another option. They are especially good for two-piece rods, with the reel attached.

    I have used the cardboard from rolls of carpet.They come 12 feet long and you can cut them with a wood saw.I screwed pcv caps on the ends.Most carpet shops will give these to you for free. These are a little heavy, but really strong.
