Old style cray pot

made from suplejack

Spotted on the Moeraki Coast, East Coast of the South Island of New Zealand, 
while we were out and about a few years ago. 
My husband used to help his uncle make these pots when he was a boy,
 so he was really interested to find this.

Read about suplejack (or supplejack) here:

  1. Don't know what suplejack is...guess I will go look that up. Looks interesting, though.

  2. Like Rose, I don't know what suplejack is either. I took her lead and looked it up. This is certainly old! Great find! Thanks for linking up!

  3. That's a cool piece of history.

  4. I'm confused, what's new! Tom The Backroads Traveller

  5. I had the pleasure of visiting to New Zealand some years ago, but do not recall seeing anything like this. Most interesting.

  6. That is some very interesting material! Woody vines.. I am thinking you catch fish in the pot?!

  7. Incredible find! Crayfish, right?
