They fasten red (crimson red) wool around a hook, and fix onto the wool two feathers which grow under a cock’s wattles, and which in colour are like wax.

One of the best pieces on fishing I've read in a long time. Thanks for sharing, John. The imagery makes me long for January, if that's possible.
