Fishing rod tubes provide a protecting shield all around a fisherman’s fishing rod. Plastic-type fishing rod tubes are generally included with a fly fishing rod that is purchased.. More expensive aluminum fishing rod tubes provide even more protection and since they are made of aluminum they are not too heavy. These fishing rod tubes are quite robust, and will protect your fishing rod while traveling..

A lot of fishing rod tubes can also be used with a fishing rod bag. Some bags are used inside of the fishing tube while others are designed to fit over the fishing rod tube and include handles to make them easy to carry. The bags offer an additional layer of protection for the fishing rod.

Fishing rod tubes are great for travel on an airplane. Check with the airline to see what is allowed since each airline is different. Some tubes are designed to allow the fishing reel to be put in the tube so that it doesn’t need to be detached.
