Captains chartering in remote locations may not provide the best tackle. When planning a trip, you can always ask to be sure or simply pack your own gear. Okuma makes bringing gear easier with its new Nomad Travel Rods. The three-piece Nomads pack securely into a custom case that meets airline carry-on regulations. Each rod also comes with a spare tip section that allows you to switch rod actions to suit fishing needs. The three casting rods come in 6-foot-6-inch and 7-foot lengths for line weights from 15 to 40 pounds or 30 to 60 pounds. The two 7-foot spinners also handle 15 to 40 or 30 to 60. Rods carry stainless-steel guides fitted with zirconium inserts. The retail price for each is $179.99. Call 909-923-2828, or visit www.okumafishing.com.
