When I saw a innovative use for old fly line from the folks at Fly Vines I was more than curious, I placed an order.
My order arrived earlier this week.
The lanyards are well constructed and use a simple snap ring as a safety release.
Clip a set of nippers and a couple of spools of tippet and you are good to go.
I like a couple more tools handy when I fish so I have added a couple of extra split rings to my set up. I put the split rings on the looped end of the lanyard so if it snags and breaks free everything stays attached. Here I have added a loop on fly line to one ring so I can clip my hemostats to it. I always carry a whistle a hold over from my search and rescue days. This one is from Whistles for Life via Fishy Kid.
Of course I am going to get a ration of grief from my pals about the bracelet. But hey it’s just a tenkara thing. Gonna wear fly line instead of fish with it.
By the way the Fly Vines guys tossed in a couple extras with my order in appreciation for my previous post. They didn’t ask me to write this post and I intended to write one in any event. I consider that kindness a motivation for doing so sooner rather than later.
