I am looking for some advice on transporting some of my gear to Alaska. I have never traveled in a plane with fishing gear. From experiance, would you recommend taking your own gear or buying it out there. I have some stuff that I use here that I could use in Alaska. The other stuff I imaging i'll just have to buy out there. Has anyone done any shipping of there gear lately and what did it cost you?
I also have a center pin rod and reel that will be coming with me no matter what. It's my pride and joy and I have spent alot of money on it. How would you recommend me getting it there safely. Shipping or going on the plane with me???
Any advice would be great!
Oh yea, is there a goodwill or salvation army near Kenai where I can buy some cloths to get smelly and bloody, lol. Then I could fill my other bag with just fishing gear.
