Designed to make stowing long handled nets in sling and hip packs easier. Lanyard attaches to the net hoop rather than the handle so it doesn't have to be fed into the net channel of the pack.
Nylon covered bungee protect the lanyard from wear and tear as well as UV rays.
Can also be attached to net handle for use with magnets and other stowing methods.
Plenty of length for landing fish but short enough to stay out of the way.
