|The Poor Man's Lanyard|
I went to Cabelas the other day for I had lost my tippet lanyard, thereby stimulating this discussion; the Poor Man's Lanyard by YellowStoneFly at the Idaho Fly Fishers Blog. A fly fisher's neck lanyard at Cabelas was $30, very pretty, and you could put a lot of things on it. It even had a mini-fly box hanging in the middle. So I thought for a minute about exactly what I needed one for and being the cheap guy that I am, I decided to try and make my own.

Every Idaho fly fisher needs one of these. Use your ingenuity to make one as fancy as you like.
Happy Idaho fly fishing and remember to always keep those fly lines tight and release what you can catch for the next generation of fly fishers.
