My  (KNOTSMITH T-FLY) Fly Fishing Lanyard is the best looking lanyard I have ever seen, a quality item that will make the fishing experience more enjoyable. I don't believe that there is a better lanyard on the market. Bob Leonard, La Grande, OR.

Design your T-FLY by selecting the half length, the length from the back of the neck loop to the bottom of the ring.  Use a cord and determine where you want the bottom of the ring (or bottom clip) to hang on your chest, mindful of where the clips will be  above it.  A   30" head loop is a practical minimum (i.e., contributes 15" of half length).  A half length of  16.5" to 17" seems to fit most folk, but do measure where you want the points of attachment to be on your chest:  too high and it will be difficult to see/remove items; too low/too long and the gear gets in the way.   Select the lanyard color and (if you wish) knot color and or accents (tan, black, chocolate or natural). Prices start at $250.    See Frequently Asked Questions OptionsHow to Order & Prices
