How to pack fishing gear for shipping?

Packing fishing gear for shipping can be quite challenging. Follow our guide to pack your fishing equipment such as fishing rods, reels, and other tackles:

  1. Remove the reel from the fishing rod and any other detachable parts. Place the fishing reel in a bubble wrap bag;

FAQs on shipping fishing tackle by post or courier

Where to buy a fishing rod shipping tube?

You can visit a local store or check online shops that sell shipping equipment. Our clients recommend a 10′ tackle tube or a 2″ diameter PVC well casing as a cheap solution for sending fishing rods and equipment.

How to choose a cardboard box for packing and shipping fishing rods?

Make sure that the cardboard box is big enough to fit the fishing rod. An average fishing rod is usually 2 meters tall. However, most of the newer spinning and casting rods are now foldable or even telescopic. That means that you will need a much smaller cardboard box or a shorter tube. If you plan to transport fishing rods and tackle in the same box, make sure you wrap these items separately to assure bigger protection when sending your fishing gear by post or via courier services.

How to transport carp, tuna or salmon fishing gear safely and cheaply?

When it comes to transporting any type of fishing equipment, the most cost-effective solution is sending it as a standard-sized parcel. Of course, this option is available for those who have portable rods, like a telescopic spinning rod, for example. A two-piece or three-piece fishing rod can also help you keep the shipping costs low.

What is the best way to transport a fishing boat and equipment?

The most convenient way to move a fishing boat and rods across Europe is booking the Van service. Shipments are delivered directly to the destination, with no stop-overs, within the shortest time possible. Transport your fishing gear together with other belongings in a van dedicated solely for your needs.

Can I ship live baits?

No, shippers are not authorised to send any live baits by mail or via courier services. However, if you are going to use plastic bait and electronic lures to attract fish, they are perfect for shipping by courier.
