How To Tie A Fish Hook Bracelet


Tie a fish hook bracelet: It just seems so...fishy. But after seeing so many people wear them on their wrists and fingers, I decided it was time to try it out for myself—and now that I have (with some help from my friends), here's how to make your own!

Gathering the Materials

You will need the following materials:

  • Paracord (the longer, stronger version of 550 cord) - This is the best kind of cord for tie-dyeing because it's strong and lasts longer than other types of paracord. I used paracord in my bracelet because I wanted something that would hold up even through multiple pieces of washing and wearing. It also has more flexibility than the 550 cord would have given me if I had chosen to use that instead.
  • Fish hooks - Your fish hook options are limitless! If you're new to tying knots or just looking for some interesting new ways to use your favorite ones then this is the perfect opportunity! You can find lots online or at any craft store near where ever you live in terms of pricing too; most come with instructions included so there won't be anything lost by not reading them first before starting on this project :)
  • Needle nose pliers - These little guys are great tools for getting small things like these done quickly without wasting any time trying out different methods until we find one worked best before moving on to another idea that wasn't quite right either..or maybe even didn't work at all!

Cutting the Paracord

To cut the paracord, you'll need a knife or scissors.

If using a knife:

  • Hold the paracord by both ends and pull it through your fingers, cutting it at a 45-degree angle.

Starting the Fish Hook Knot

  • Start with a loop.
  • Pass the end through the loop.
  • Pull tight to create a knot in your bracelet.

Completing the First Half of the Fish Hook Knot

Next, you'll continue to wrap the paracord around the fish hook in a counterclockwise direction.

This can be done by simply wrapping it around the fish hook four times or more depending on how large of a size you want your bracelet to be. The number of wraps will determine how tight or loose they are when tied together.

When finished wrapping, draw both ends through each other and tie off with an overhand knot at one end of your bracelet (we used a square knot).

Finishing the Fish Hook Knot

To finish the fish hook knot, tie a knot at the end of your cord and make sure it's tight. You can use a lighter to melt any excess cord that may be left over after you cut off any excess with a sharp knife.

Handling and Storing the Bracelet

The fish hook bracelet should be stored in a dry place. You don't want to wear the bracelet in water, so don't wear it when you're swimming or bathing in salt water.

Tying a fish hook knot is readily doable with your own two hands.

The fish hook knot is an easy project to learn, and it's a good one for kids. It's also fun to make with your own two hands, which means you can take it out of the box when the time comes and get started right away. You might even find that tying this knot becomes an obsession—just like knitting socks or crocheting scarves!

The beauty of this crafty endeavor is that there is no limit to what kind of designs you can make using only string and hooks. If you have some spare time on your hands but don't have any yarns lying around (and let's face it: who does?), then consider making some bracelets out of leather straps instead!


We hope this tutorial was helpful to you, and that it got the fish hook knot tying out of your mind. Remember that a fish hook bracelet is a great way to express yourself through jewelry, especially if you’re an angler like us! Don’t be afraid to experiment with different materials and colors as well. Fishing is also a fun way to spend time on your own or with friends; we recommend exploring some new spots or getting together with old ones who share your passion for catching freshwater fish. Happy fishing!
