Default Re: Lanyards

I've never tried one. I use a small waist pack with my leader and tippet, 2 very small fly boxes, nippers and forceps, couple granola bars. Would like to get a vest again for longer day trips. Don't think I could get used to having something hangin around my neck swinging around.

I agree that "swinging" lanyards are no good. However, mine hardly moves, even bending over, because I clip my hemos to my shirt, and put one or both of the fly boxes in a pocket. That holds the lanyard on my chest. I know some that just have a small clip on the bottom of the lanyard that clips on their shirt too. Its easy to keep from swinging.

Like others, I bought some cheap Para cord and made my own. If I am going for a while, I take it with a small waist pack. If it is a quick jaunt after work, it's just me, the rod and the lanyard.
