Fishing Line Update

Published by at 11:13 pm under Plant Materials

Not making much progress on anything today, I thought I’d post on pretty much the only primitive thing I did today. The rest of the elm bark I had from making the straps to the pack-frame will go into make a braided fishing line.

I need more fishinglines when the ice fishing season starts soon (very late this year). I also will need them on my expedition this summer.

The process is simple. The sheets are seperated into smaller sheets.

The sheets are plaited into a braid. It is very slow work. But the result is a very strong line.


Get my book "Traditional Trout Fishing: Fishing for Survival in the North (Volume 1)
