Nice job Poopdeck, and it is called ornamental rope work not macramé. Ask any Boatswain Mate about their pipe lanyard.  :-)

laugh.png  Okay, okay ... "rope work".  But I wouldn't ask a Boatswain's Mate anything !!!  We all KNOW what a B. M. produces !!!

 

Kidding, Squids and Shallow Water Navy guys ... just kidding !!!


Barbed hooks rule!

My definition of work: Doing something in which effort exceeds gain.

Last week I was fishing the San Juan River in Northern New Mexico and paid a visit to the shop that McFlyLures works at. He posts in this forum and makes some good videos as well.  

 

Anyway, as I was making my way out the door, I noted a lanyard hanging on the wall.  I had seen those somewhere and thought to myself, 'Wow!  One of those would really come in handy when out on the stream.'  I positively hate searching for something I know is (was?) in one of the many pockets of my vest.  A lot of time gets wasted searching for these 'hidden' items.  With a lanyard, every important item is right at your fingertips.

 

Thanks so much for showing us how to make one of these.  

 

When I was in grade school we used to use some sort of plastic lace to weave (braid?) 'lanyards' to attach your keys or whatever to.  Your concept must be similar to that.  I have a lot of 550 para cord that would work perfectly for this.  

 

What a great idea.  Thanks so much for this info.

 

Macrame ... are you kidding me?

Your welcome patriot. i don't go fishing without mine. Most times I don't use the neck strap and just prefer looping the bottom through my wader straps.

They make great Christmas gifts for your buddies.
