SEA RUN FLY FISHING TRAVEL CASES – $499-$569 (SEARUNCASES.COM)
Once travel restrictions are over, adventurous anglers are going to make up for lost time. If you are one of them, we can’t recommend a Sea Run Fly Fishing Travel Case enough. Made in Italy by Negrini, a company with a 40-year history of manufacturing travel cases for fine shotguns and rifles, Sea Run cases are secure (TSA compliant), lightweight, and compact—perfect for itinerant anglers. We were blown away by the quality of the construction and the thoughtful layout on the interior. The bottom of the case contains recessed, padded compartments for storing reels, spare spools, leaders, fly line, fly boxes, and other gear. A divider wall separates the top of the case which has space for 4-5 fly rods plus additional storage. We haven’t been this excited about a new piece of fly fishing gear in years!
