Hello, welcome to the forum.

 

I looked through the index of my copy of the ABC Dictionary of Chinese Proverbs, but found no entries related to the Yellow River.

I don't know if it shows "bonds and ties" but two sayings come to mind:

不到黃河不死心

跳到黃河也洗不清

googling 黄河 with 成语 gives more examples that contain 黄河 in the explanation rather than in the 成语 itself, for instance:

描写黄河的成语_赞美黄河的成语_关于黄河的成语_成语词典 - 第一范文网

Quote

俟河之清:等待。等待黄河变清。比喻期望的事情不能实现。
