Fishing is a sport that many people enjoy, and it’s something that you can do any time of year. Whether you fly fish for salmon in a river, spin cast for bass in a lake, deep sea fish with a hook and line or go ice fishing in the deep cold of winter, there’s a style of fishing that appeals to just about anyone. For a lot of people, fishing provides a chance to enjoy some peaceful relaxation out on the water and a chance to get away from all the stresses in their life.

When you’re fishing, there’s bound to be a lot of little odds and ends that you need to keep track of. You want to have them at your fingertips yet still have your hands free. A lanyard with a clip at the end is the perfect solution. You can clip your small items to the lanyard so they are then when you need them.

One way to put a lanyard to good use is to put a small assortment of items you may need such as hooks, sinkers, bobbers, lures, flies and line joiners into a pouch or case which you then fasten to the lanyard. You can even clip your sunglasses to it when you aren’t wearing them. If mosquitoes or other biting insects are a problem, then attaching a small spray bottle of insect repellant to the lanyard means that you’ll have it with you when ever you need a quick reapplication.

Many fishermen (and fisherwomen) today practice their sport while keeping the ecology of the environment in mind. When they are lucky enough to catch a fish, they practice “catch and release”. The fish is reeled in, the hook is carefully removed and perhaps a picture of their prize catch is snapped, then the fish is gently released back into the water where it will, with any luck, go on to live a long and happy life. The hook is usually removed using a small pair of pliers or a multitool, which can be attached to a lanyard worn around the neck, which keeps your hand free.

Many different styles of lanyards are available, and you’re sure to find the style that best suits your needs. They are made from a wide range of materials, and one made from woven nylon or polyester makes an excellent choice, as it is waterproof, durable and comfortable to wear. They also come in a nice assortment of colors, with one to match every taste.

If you want to make your lanyard even more versatile, you can have it custom printed with your name, the name of your business or sporting club. Many businesses and clubs find that lanyards make a great promotional item, as they are an item that is both useful and practical. With the business or group’s name custom printed on it, a lanyard gets your name and message out there in the public eye. You can even have your logo custom printed on the lanyard, which makes it even more your own.

Fishing is a pastime that is both fun and relaxing. Whether you’re fly fishing in a rushing river or floating lazily on a lake, a lanyard is sure to be a welcome and useful addition to your fishing gear.
