Sierra nets offers two types of lanyards. First, the optional and outstanding paracord Net Safety Lanyard is hand made in the USA. It boasts high quality stainless steel and aluminum hardware for long life and corrosion resistance. It will keep your Sierra Net tethered to you so you don't lose it to the river. Many a fly fisherman knows the sickening feeling of watching his net drift down an inaccessible section of river never to be seen again. Secondly, every Sierra Net features a complimentary hand tied lanyard attached to the butt of the nets handle. It's made from extra strong military grade cord that is made here in the USA, and includes a cord stop.
