  • Patent number: 4540136
    Abstract: A fishing line loader is disclosed. The loader includes a base, upstanding sidewalls and a shaft. A fishing line spool may be mounted on the shaft between two disks. A crank is provided on the shaft and a clutch has drive pins which extend through one of the disks to drive the fishing line spool. An elastomeric bearing urges one of the disks against the fishing line spool to restrict rotation of the spool relative to the shaft. Guides define a path for the fishing line in a direction parallel to the shaft.
