It’s a lanyard. Little kids make them at Sunday School; ultimately it isn’t that different from a string, right? Sure, all of that is true, but it’s also perfectly sized for slipping through a pack of tippet spools, which you can anchor with a set of snips at the bottom. Simple, arguably elegant, highly efficient, and a perfect stocking stuffer.
Purchase: From Simms or at your local fly shop.
Rating: 4 stars out of 5 (they could sell this thing for under $20, but it’s not a big deal).
