WAITING FOR WARMER WEATHER -
By: UDONTWANTME from Mahopac Falls, N.Y.
Even though I have not used this item "a-stream", just putting it on, as if I were stream side, in a warmer clime, it feels the part. Each piece of gear I have installed on the lanyard is in the right-east-to-reach place, and out of my way while making those carefully placed casts. A home run for this happy angler, as Spring is just a short "cast" away.
Packable tackle solution -

Nice product, good for a backpacking flyfisherman. The only gripe is the floatant holder is connected to the lanyard by a small strap that is attached to the holder by a few flimsy stiches. It pulled right off upon trying to remove the container of floatant. Easy enough to fix but for that price a detail like that should not be overlooked. Otherwise a great product.
Vest Around Your Neck -
By: Dondo from Hailey, Idaho
I live within 3-5 minutes of the Big Wood River in Central Idaho. As such I do a lot of spur of the minute visits to my favorite fishing spot. I keep the lanyard equipped specifically for this river so when the urge strikes, I grab my rod, sling the lanyard around my neck and am on the river in minutes. No hassel with a vest and having to sort through the pockets. Great piece of fishing equipment.
Not exactly as shown -

Overall I,m pleased with the lanyard, but I was looking forward to the smaller snips and a green fly box. I guess you tend to get what they have available in stock.
poor quality -
I used this lanyard for about four outings. I attrached my favorite fishing tool to one of the hooks, an Abel Perfect toll, which is no longer made. The lanyard broke without any presuure being applied, so I did not know, and lost all of my attachments including my tool. When I looked at the monufilament line that the beads were strung on, it was old and rotted! I am wishing my tools were still on the shoestring that I used before buying this lanyard.
Fly fishing wonder -

This is the best setup for fly fishing without the bulk of a loaded down vest or pack. Everything you need is hung from the lanyard. The best part of this particular item from Orvis is it can be purchased fully loaded so you don't have to sort around to find all the gadgets needed for your day on the water. Great present for my husband who couldn't find anything in his vest prior to this gift.

If you think less is more, like I do, you will love using this lanyard. Allows you to keep everything you need at your fingertips.
