Where have all the telescopic poles gone?

Beware of travelling with a pole in your rucksack as hand luggage. I did it twice until a friend was forced to put his into the hold unguarded as security felt it could have been used as a weapon on board. Now I always take a 20/23 kgs hold suitcase with fishing pole and walking poles in that, having said that I tend to go on longer tours than I did some years ago.

Mine is always in the checkin luggage. Just arrived near HB/BE-104 (or is 102) but there is a significant rainstorm right now which is interupting activating ! :cloud_with_rain: :frowning:
