Hi all
This is my latest idea, pinched from Hywel Embarassed



Click on the photo for a good look

They are a bit fancier than his but do the same job
You wear round your neck and clip your nippers, sinkant, floatant etc etc to the clips so you don't have to go foraging in your pockets for them

Useful for both fly and coarse anglers

They can hold any number of clips from 1 to 7 being the max I would think
I have done 5 as I think that's what Hywel's has and certainly what the American ones have

I will be finishing them off with lobster claw fittings to give you the option of just slipping it over your head, or if you have a big hat, undo and put it on
The beads are painted and natural wood and the cord is quality 2mm braided necklace cord

I am obviously very interested in what you think about them and if there is any interest Smile
I will be selling them at a paltry £5.30 for the 5 clip and that will include the postage Surprised

I know I know!!!!!!! How can I give you such a good price Smile

Well I want to sell them and not just have them hanging around.................................................. Laughing Laughing Laughing
Think about it Rolling Eyes

I can also do very fancy ones out of bone beads, but they would be to order and would have to be quoted as bone beads are expensive over here
But it would certainly be one of a kind Very Happy

Anyway, everyone let me know what you think of them and PM if you fancy one

Thanks

Mick

Having a reasonable idea what those beads cost 'over here' your price (expressed in USD) can't be a heck of a lot over your hard cost(s). Depending upon how 'involved' you want to get with these there are a few other UK based fly boards you might want to consider.

Ok I have added the things people have advised, the only thing missing the crocodile clip, but they haven't arrived yet

Here's what they look like now



So there we have the rubber tube and the tippet holder

I am also getting a few bone beads so you can see what a bone one would look like and also what it would cost

With the extras this one is £5.75 and I will soon be putting them up on Ebay for a little bit more
But of course for CF members, £5.75

Haven't quite got all the parts I need to 100% finish them so I will probably put some up next week

Here is the bone one though



Now Bone beads are APPRECIABLY more expensive than wooden ones and one like this would be somewhere in the region of £15 Surprised

Yes I know, but you put 'Bone beads' in ebay and see the price Evil or Very Mad
If asked very nicely I may be able to cut a little off the price for members

PS Before you say

I cannot get anywhere near the price the Americans make them at as over there bone beads are the price of wooden ones over here Crying or Very sad

If I had the cash to get over there i'd bring a suitcase full back Twisted Evil
