BOBBIN THREADER
A fly tying bobbin threader is a simple device designed to coax the thread through the bobbin tube.


Wire Loop Bobbin Threader
These are the most common style Bobbin Threaders.

When loading a spool of thread on a bobbin, using a bobbin threader will make pulling the thread through the bobbin tube easy. If you have ever tried to push the thread through the bobbin tube, then you know that it can be frustrating and that is when a bobbin threader comes in handy.

DIRECTIONS:
Insert the threader in the bobbin tube. Capture the thread with the wire loop and pull the bobbin threader back out of the tube. If everything worked, then the thread was pulled through the tube when removing the metal wire of the bobbin threader.

BOBBIN TUBE CLEANER
When using waxed thread, the wax can build up inside the bobbin tube and should be cleaned if needed. Generally the worst problem caused by wax build up is that it makes threading a new spool of thread is more difficult. You can buy a ram rod designed for this purpose or use a length of mono to push through the tube. Don't use a stiff wire that could damage or score the inside of the tube, which could cause the thread to break or fray.

MANUALLY THREADING A BOBBIN
An easy way to thread the bobbin without any special tools is push the thread into the tube as far as easily possible, then place your lips on the tip of the bobbin tube and suck the thread through. It really does work, but make sure there isn't any wax build-up or grim inside the tube or you could inhale it in the process.

Bobbin Vacuum
Using a vacuum cleaner to thread
the bobbin. Place the vacuum nozzle
up to the tip and it quickly sucks the
thread through the bobbin tube. Most
people think this is a funny method.

Place the nozzle of a canister vacuum to the tip of the bobbin and it will quickly and effectively suck the thread into and through the bobbin tube. Most people think we are crazy, but it works.
