Sea Run Expedition Series Case Awarded GRAY’S BEST


When you’re traveling to fish a world class destination, it doesn’t make sense to settle for less when it comes to safely transporting your gear. The Sea Run Expedition Rod & Reel Travel Cases ($569) is designed and developed in the USA, but manufactured in Italy by the Negrini Case Company. Negrini is long recognized as the world’s foremost maker of luxury shotgun and rifle cases, so it comes as no surprise that it has borrowed from more than 40 years of experience in that field to create a fly fishing case that is secure, lightweight, and constructed of impact-resistant composites with outer and inner double-walls for maximum protection. Secured with three TSA compliant combination locks, this is a case you can check at the airline counter and worry no more. Interior bottom compartments are plenty deep enough to hold a half dozen large arbor reels, while plenty of space remains for leaders, lines, and accessories. A canvas wall separates it from an interior top that has ample storage for five four-piece, 9.5′ rods. Meanwhile, the exterior is everything you’d expect from fine Italian design, with a green and tobacco leather surface that reminds everyone your refined tastes extend beyond where you’re going and expand into how you’re getting there.
