There's a Youtube video of Davie McPhail tying this pattern. If I wasn't so lazy (and at work), I would post the link. ;)

Re: Teak Wading Staff (DIY Project)

Nice work, Ray! You could sell those. My wife bought me a folding wading staff a couple of years ago. I used to be very sure-footed, but I have had some balance problems the past couple of years. I took a couple of pretty nasty spills, but fortunately, I was on the bank at the time.
