Spruce roots for cordage

On our recent Primitive Fishing Kits course, we used spruce roots for cordage so that we could splice the 2 component parts of the hooks together.  Of course this isn’t the only only use for this really versatile material.

Take a look at this video to find out how to prepare the spruce roots to use as cordage.

We also look at cordage on our IOL Bushcraft Competency Certifcicate training course.

You can see photos from that course, our Primitive Fishing Kit courses, as well as all of our other courses, on our Facebook page.
