November 13, 2015 (Sonoma, CA): Always on the hunt to make fly fishing more enjoyable, Leland has teamed up with Nature Boy Designs to offer a US made lanyard that comes complete with all the necessary stream side tools that fly anglers rely on. Each smartly-designed, handmade lanyard comes ready to fish, including a clipper, forceps, zinger and tippet T (for your tippet spools). A few extra snap swivels allow the angler to customize the set up. Now all your necessary fly fishing tools are easily within reach. It’s perfect for that late evening hatch, just grab a fly box and you’re good to go. Leland’s Nature Boy Lanyard – Loaded.

Vest, What Vest?: The Iconic fly fishing vest is still available for the few holdouts in our sport, but today most anglers prefer a shoulder or chest pack. Packs work well for storing fly boxes, leader and such, but accessing the tools we anglers use all day presents a challenge if you must open your pack each time. Leland’s Nature Boy Lanyard keeps the commonly used equipment right in reach…all day long. That’s smart fishing and at Leland…we like it that way.

Get Customized: Let’s face it, we’re all different. We come in different sizes. Some of use are left handed…others right. No problem, Leland’s Nature Boy Lanyard is fully adjustable for a custom fit. You’re angling necessities will be right where you want them. You can even move your tools about the lanyard with the provided snap swivels. Heck, there’s even a few extra, should you desire to add more items. You can even mount your lanyard directly to your waders if you wish.

Safety First: You might ask if it’s safe to hang a loop of super strong paracord around your neck. At Leland, we asked the same. The good news is that Leland’s Nature Boy Lanyard has your safety in mind. Each lanyard comes with a quick release connection. In the rare event you get hung up, the release will do its job and you’ll be around to fish another day.

Pro Review – Carrie Roche

As a woman angler, I have gone back and forth between vests and packs. Most of the time they just don’t fit all that well, and I find myself digging and looking in each and every pocket to find my tippet or clipper.

I fish Montana with my Dad each year and this lanyard really works well on our Big Horn floats. I love that everything is right there in front of me for easy access. I can even attach it directly to the shoulder straps on my waders. It allows me to jump in and out of the boat when necessary, yet I still have the right tools for rigging and releasing fish. Did I mention it comes complete with everything you need for a day on the water? It even comes with extra snap swivels so you can add more “essentials” if you wish.

I even wear this same Leland Nature Boy Lanyard when instructing here at the Leland ranch. It makes it so easy when fixing knotted leaders and quickly re-rigging. It’s also great for demonstrating how to use the necessary tools when helping a newer angler. It’s just simple and come to find…simple really works.
Beyond function, I really like the look and color scheme of the lanyard as well. The fact that each and every lanyard is hand made, right here in the USA by Nature Boy Designs, also adds to the flavor of this smartly-designed item. I recommend it to all my fly fishing friends. If you’re tired of fumbling for your essential stream-side tools and tippet when fly fishing, you really will love the Leland Nature Boy Lanyard.
