Airport Security & Goofball Combine for Laugh in Rome

“A Norwegian tourist fell asleep on a baggage belt at Rome’s Fiumicino airport and traveled 160 feet before being identified by an X-ray scanner, The Telegraph reported.  The 36-year-old man, whose name has not been released, was due to check in for a flight to Oslo, but found no one on duty at the airline desk.  He leapt across the counter and fell asleep on the baggage belt with his bag beside him, the paper reported. The man then traveled for 15 minutes through the secure baggage area before being spotted on an X-ray scanner by airport officials. it seems this kind of incident is not terribly unusual among, “drunks or people with psychological problems.”  In fact, the paper reports the official as saying this kind of thing happens about once a year.” (source)

TSA & The Really Big…well….. Carry On Gear?

Have you sensed the extra tension brought to your life while passing through airport security these days? Maybe it is just me. I was always excited to travel before. Now, I just have this elevated sense of anxiety and resentment to get past some bozo’s with an inflated sense of duty. Yes, yes….’just trying to protect you’….whatever. So speaking of inflated, imagine this ‘problem’ as Johan Falcon attempts to pass through airport security with his super schwantz taped to his thigh…apparently a record breaking appendage that freaked airport security. They can never be too careful or embarrassed.

JONAH FALCON’S ROD INTIMIDATES SECURITY

So, this remotely segways into when you attempt to pass through airport security do you have a clear idea if reels, lines, flies, rods are acceptable for carry on? I would be interested if anyone has access to a definitive statement on the transporting, as carry on, of fly fishing’s basic implements. I have read varied opinions re this and have had varied responses at airports. Flies ‘yes’…flies ‘no’ for example.
