I have an inch or 2 of line holding my knife to my belt so it sort of dangles close. I never feel it but its always there when I need it.

I run my knife parallel to the belt. I also run a crotch strap so the belt doesn't slide or move in position, making it easy to find my knife or belt clip. My knife is on the large side. I use a custom knife. Made by Hiko Ito called the Kanaloa.

I run the knife parallel mostly so I can see me putting the knife back.

I used to run my knife on my leg, but ended up getting tangled too often. I then tried my arm, but it always loosened or cut off too much circulation. It also got tangled a lot there.

You wouldn’t happen to have any photos?

I carry a knife like that on my forearm. Its instantly available and isn't lost if I drop my belt.

I have been using a Gerber Exo Mod but it is a rather small knife. It's just a utility knife probably useless for fish or heavy rope but it does come in different sizes and styles.

How do you attach it to your belt? I could do something similar to the knife I already have
It is just a wide piece of nylon webbing with a standard plastic tri-glide buckle. Thicker webbing helps keep it from being floppy or coming loose.

If your belt moves, you don't need to do anything with your knife. You need another belt. Buy a rubber one. Better if marseillase.

So, you need to pull it tighter. And you can also run a bungee down your crotch to prevent it from rotating.
