Fishing while traveling

Grown up fishing the gulf. But, not so much fresh water fishing other than some bass in a lake or two. My goal is to change that as I travel
Anybody on the skoolie road bring a few poles as they travel the states?
I'd really like to give fly fishing a try, any advice?
Also, any unique storage ideas for all your fishing gear? Some of my poles are a worth a lot of money so keeping them from breaking or growing legs would be really sweeeet.

In Mo. and Ks they have Conservation lakes that you can stay at for 14 days at no cost. Was that way and still is as far as i know. There are some monster fish in those lakes.

At first we installed 2 of the cheap plastic/foam rod racks on the back wall above the door and break poles down

Then we used overhead rod holders on curved roof over sleeping area, that changed with bedroom 2.0

now not sure what we will do

ALso if we decide to fish, we go online and can get a couple day pass w/o leaving the bus if we have cell signal or wifi

You can rig a system that holds your fly rods on the ceiling. I do that in my car and they are out of the way and don't get knocked around yet they are easy to get to. I use the same system when I travel with my surfboards. It's worked for me. Locking them may be hard that way though.

Ice fishing poles or little kid poles are easy to travel with.

I have had a few people laugh at me along the creeks and rivers only to see me walk away with more fish and larger fish then they got with their $2000. worth of GQ fly fishing gear.
