Tell me about your packable fishing pole

I've had a 7 foot Eagle Claw that doubles as spinning and fly rod, and breaks down to store in it's own aluminum tube for several years, and I've had cheap telescoping ones in the distant past. (no like!)
What I'd like to find is a break-down 5 to 6 foot light or ultralight spinning rod.
Any ideas?

For Christmas, Mrs1911fan got me a flyrod that breaks down into several pieces, and packs to a little over a foot long. She found it on Amazon.

I use a Trophy (by Martin) 9' Graphite #6wt fly rod that separates into 3 lengths of about 33" long each. It came with a hard side tube which is covered in cordura. The tube is about 2" diameter. I can't see why a similar rod couldn't be fitted with a spinning reel. I don't recall it being very expensive. I can't say I have caught a lot of fish with it ... but the point of fishing really isn't catching fish ... or so I'm told.

oh great, another good idea for more stuff to take with me on my tour of scotland in september!
it'll have to be a beachcaster, but i'll have to find one that breaks into 3' sections. or MAYBE a tele, but im not a big fan they are usually cheap rubbish. maybe cheap rubbish is the way forward though? if i dont catch my supper i can blame lidl

Bottom of the line Cabella’s 5 pc straps to the back of my top bag. I carry shorts and water shoes so I can jump into a stream at any time.

Oh for fux sake! Something else from this place I had no idea I needed until know. I mean... medically need. You guys are killing me and my credit rating.

Anyways...I have an Omni Frontier 5.5' light action pack rod. 5 pieces about 16" each. Cheap Daiwa reel. Catches pan fryers just fine. Not sure how much longer it is gonna survive in the top case though. I'm not a fish purist/snob. A stainless steel rod sounds like a hell of a good idea for a dual sporter. Damn it...

Go too www.GoFastandLIGHT.com They make a very cool ultra light, telescoping,pen fishing rod with an ultra light

spinning reel. The reel comes off of course, and the rod packs into itself into a pen shaped container that is 8 inches long.

I measured it. 20.00 bucks. Seriously, 19.98! And, believe it or not, the reel that comes with it isn't bad at all. It's worth

every penny just for the packable rod. I plan on picking up a couple of more. And they come in cool colors too.

My muskie rod doesn't pack down, so I improvised



Sorry it's not about packable rods, but this is a solution to a similar problem.

I have a few Eagle Claw travel poles, used for both fly and spinning reels that have been perfect for MC travel in various places.

I've been using a cheap telescopic rod for about 15 yrs now. I think I paid 9 bucks. Not the greatest feel but I've caught 100s of pan sized trout with it.

The trout don't know im using a cheap rod and reel.
