My old lanyard was getting pretty ratty looking so I figured I would upgrade. 50" of blue camo parachute chord and some time with nothing else to do and voila! A new lanyard. It's woven from one length of chord. Now I just need to get out and use it. In a pinch maybe I could unweave it and rappel down a waterfall. :lol:

Flat weave for the neck.

Nice work --

but I just prefer to wear my filthy 25+ year old Columbia vest with lots of pockets. Everything fits in.
If I'm doing a blue line, I can take a bunch of stuff out, still have a lightweight vest, a few fly boxes in case the trout get persnickity, some leaders and several tippet spools. And a spare reel in the back pouch of the vest in case I fall and bust my reel. And also a sandwich, cheese crackers, and a bottle of water for lunch.

To each his own. I'm not into the lanyard thing. I see lots of things that I might need on a fishing trip to be missing there. Jist sayin .... :)

All that extra junk goes in the backpack. ;) About the only thing I add to it is a fixed blade knife. I never thought I would like one, and refused to buy one. But I made one a couple years ago out of some hemp twine I had. I've used it till it was about to fall apart. Vest's always made me sweat too much. I guess it's not much different than a pack though. To each their own. Do what makes it fun for ya!
