For a long time now I have been using a lanyard to put my fishing tools on.. I keep a small reel with a tape measure. a hook file,a leader clipper, a tippet holder, and a nail knot tool. I find it to be an easy way to carry and use the tools since it is very handy. If I need to get it out of the way I simply swing it over on to my back... just wondering why I don't see more flyfishermen, at least on he salt, using them. Would like to get some reaction to these things from others.
