FISHING-LINE. A line made either of hair twisted, or of silk; or of the Indian grass. The best colours are the sorrel, white, and gray; the two last for clear, the first for muddy waters. The pale watery green colour is given artificially, by steeping the hair in a liquor made of alum, soot, and the juice of walnut-leaves, boiled together.
