Lesson of the day:  you can't just tie a rattlesnake in a knot on your motorcycle's luggage rack and expect it to stay there.

It was a nice 4 footer that had been hit on the road with only the head and first few inches damaged.  I actually went back and got it. I made it home with it draped across the handlebars. I'll tan it and use it for knife sheath inlays if I ever find time to get back to making knives.

Maybe the knot was the problem.  I used a single  square knot.  Next time I'll try the one you need for braided fishing line.

Google Bimini twist. That knot will not fail.

One of the guys I used to work with used to say “If you can’t tie good knots, tie lots of them!”. He carried a Bowie Knife.....

It takes a lot of snake to tie a Bimini Twist, but the resulting double line will hold an Anaconda!...SelbyLowndes
