So you know after youre done with some cord, making a lanyard or a bracelet, and you trim off the ends? And you have a 3 or 4 inch piece of cord left over?
Does anyone have any legitimate use for these scraps?

I saw a picture of a fishing lure made from a short scrap. Run the hook through the middle and heat the end near the eye. Down by the curve of the hook brush the outer sheath, letting the inner cord run 1/8" or so longer and brush that out too. Instant lure. The one I saw was red.

I was out bottom fishing, but there were a lot of crabs as well. Well, I changed bait and had less luck with the crabs as I'd moved toward a small Puget Sound Bullhead, also called a Pacific Staghorn Sculpin, Leptocottus armatus which is a tougher skinned and tougher bodied fish than my regular bait of Pacific Herring Clupea pallasii and I caught a rather nice, well over minimum Red Rock Crab Cancer productus with a totally improvised, hasty crab snare made from the inner threads of 550 cord.
