OK with the Canada fly in for my son and I getting closer every month, [June 4,5,6,7] I was wondering if any of you guys who ever have done this had opinions. My son and I were discussing ideas about rod and lure transport. We both have good rod cases that are big enough that we could put our rods and fishing lures both in the case. The TSA is very unclear on what you can bring on board, as carry on, as far as lures with hooks on them. I dont know if a guy should trust the airline with high end rods, lost luggage is not un-heard of. We were considering packing all we could in our rod tubes and UPSing them to Canada, a few weeks before the trip, and then bringing them back as checked luggage on the trip back. Does this even sound like a good idea? Any opinions helpful, or someone with experience with this.
PS, still have not figured out how to post pics,, my screen on my PC never looks like any of the ones I see other people trying to explain how to do it.

I was 10 on my last Canada trip and Uncle Larry took care of everything lol.
However, my last 2 WA trips, I usps (US Mail) out my long rods, reels, waders, fillet knives and some tackle. It made travel easier and was cheaper than checking as a second bag (i checked a cooler full of frozen salmon as my 2nd bag--cheaper than ups or fed ex on way home). I also mailed home all that i mailed out plus new tackle of course.
I'm curious to hear someone's Canada experience regarding this also, just in case I ever get lucky enough to go.
