I've had a decent spinning rod for years that telescopes. It's good casting rod. I needed a rod that broke down in a small length to carry in my emergency gear aboard our various airplanes over the years. For fly fishing a decent quality multi piece rod will fit in a saddlebag and still provide decent dry fly casting. The new Ruger takedown 10/22 will fit in a saddlebag. Unfortunately my old Mossberg 12ga. won't even when taken apart. Too bad I know of some good duck hunting spots that I could go to with my 'Wing. I like to have everything inside the bike so I don't have to worry about security if I stop somewhere to eat or refuel.
