Why I pack it: "I often take a four-piece, so it fits in a suitcase. But every away city brings a different challenge. For Colorado's rivers, I'll bring a fly rod. For Minnesota's ponds, I'll use a light tackle kind of pole. I'll bring a heavier gauge pole to tear up big saltwater fish when we visit the Angels or Rays."
