Nice looking lanyard. I don't know how you do it but they look great.

You guys that tie those knots are amazing to me. Great work.

Each one gets me closer to a "standard" design so I am trying a lot of different things..

I do like the spiral knot that joins the neck and the braided drops at the bottom and the "ornamental" knots that hold the upper drops..

it is hard to settle on what might become the "production model"  I already have ideas on the next duck call lanyard incorporating some of whats here,

the evolution continues,..

and I will improve my picture taking,..I promise..

I like that neck braid pattern a lot.  The spiral knot I cannot figure out how you did that one....good one/

I cannot quite get a full picture of how this one looks overall...do you have a full length shot?

Loaded up with 2 crow calls and a squirrel call,.. working on somehow tapering the next one so it doesn't drop to the braid so suddenly



the laminated crow call split so I used superglue and some more knots....



the gray cordage has a shine to it when photographed with a flash...
