    Default Call Lanyards

    So I don't know how or why but I started making these call lanyards.. Actually surprised myself on how it came out.
    Here is one completed. Had 550 cord laying around so I used it.
    Now I'm making another one more stealth mode colors.

    Good looking lanyards. I have been making my own as well and keep trying different designs and styles. They are now hanging all over my house I just have not found the perfect one yet so I'll keep tying till I get one just right. It's a fun way to pass the time stuck out on the rigs.

    You aught to make a duck lanyard (or duck strap) next. This one is mine and is made from 550 cord as well, it's really freakin sweet!

    I made a strap last season and like it but I wish I had made it wider. One thing that I like about it is instead of the rings that you make the loop for the head with, I used really small caribeaners and it makes it a lot easier hooking up ducks to it just wrap it around the neck and snap it. I'll get a pic when I get back home

    I like it! I usually clip mine onto my backpack, but the neck strap could come in handy. I think I'll make one like yours next.

    Hope those little d rings are stainless steel..even so you will probably end up replacing them with rings later on due to salt and brackish water.

    Ck on adding some rings to it and see which ones you like best.

    Those store bought ones are nice and all, but there is a certain pride in making one yourself.

    The rings I used on mine came from an Avery Neck strap. I cut them off, and threw it away, then put the rings on my duckstrap. Kind of a waste of $20, but all I wanted on the thing was the metal rings anyway. I couldn't find them anywhere else.

    That's funny that never even crossed my mind about those rusting. Either way they are replaceable if I need to. The other strap I made had aluminum clips and those held up great in the salt. If these rust I will replace them with the aluminum ones.


    Hey duckslayer if you need more rings trustworthy here in Soldotna has them.
