Just came acroos this latest "official" TSA documeent on where to put your sporting equipment: http://blog.tsa.gov/2014/06/tsa-travel-tips-traveling-with-sporting.html. Carry-on rods-Yes, large saltwater hooks-No. TAckle is OK, but what is tackle: lines and reels? TSA quote from here (http://blog.tsa.gov/2014/05/tsa-travel-tips-travel-tips-for.html): "Fishing Rods/Poles/Tackle - TSA allows fishing poles, but if you’re taking them as a carry-on, you might want to give your airline a call and see if the pole exceeds their carry-on limits. Tackle is ok as a carry-on, but be sure that you don’t have any knives or large deep sea fishing hooks. Also, tools can’t be larger than seven inches."

Unfortunately, knowing these rules and regs doesn't stop the TSA folk with a chip on his/her shoulder from screwing you...
