Mada are definitely sticky when it comes to reels or hookless lures in hand luggage. I pack for mada as follows:

20kg check in: Poppers, reels (in a plastic box(big jim type) which goes into my bag for extra protection), terminal tackle, leaders, tools, accessories - towel and a jacket to cushion all the gear

Rod tube: given that they allow 15kg on the tube, I insert a smaller pvc pipe into my rod tube (slightly longer than than my rods) and jam the pvc tube full of jigs... I wrap my rods around this. When you land in Tana - go to the Air Mada counter at international departures to pay for the tube for your connecting flight - it was around $30 for the extra 15kg the last time I flew

Hand luggage: clothing, meds, toiletries, camera, personal items....

Cage, thanks for the tips.
