The "necklace" works fine. I actually hung it between my wader straps so the flies hang just in the front of the waders. Only problem is the size of the safety pins available in my local store. Size 3 (2" ones) have a wire diameter that only fit tubes with large openings. Many of my flies are tied on smaller diameter aluminum, brass and plastic tubes. The wire on the larger pins is just too fat. I'll need to find a source for large pins with smaller diameter wire. But the concept is really handy. Fishing was pretty good.
