On my first trip to Key West I carried on rods, reels (with fly lines) and a box or tarpon flies. They all went through with out a problem but I did ask the TSA guy about the hooks because I was expecting them to tell me the hooks are too big and need to be checked. His response was "If they were bare hooks, you would have to check them in". Really? A hook with feathers on it is less dangerous than one with out?
I routinely travel with boxes of trout flies with never an issue.
It all still depends on which TSA agent you get.
