Fishline Spool Holder plan
Fishline Spool Holder
This fishline spool holder is designed to hold up to a 6 1/2" diameter and 4" wide spool. It can be made for any size spool by changing dimensions of item B or item C. Item A could be shorter, but enough weight is required to keep the assembly from moving when you are winding line onto your fishing reel.
1. Locate the dowel hole in B 1/2" from top and centered (1") from the edges. Drill a 1/4" hole all the way through the wood. Put a little wood glue into the hole and insert the dowel, item C, into the hole until it is flush with the wood.
2. Locate the hole in D by drawing a light pencil line from opposite corners to make an X. Drill the 1/4" hole all the way through. This piece is used to hold the spool onto the dowel. Friction will hold it in place on the dowel.
3. Screw B to A using 1 1/2" flathead wood screws.
4. Apply finish (either paint or stain/varnish) to the project.
Put a spool of line onto the dowel so the line comes off of the bottom of the spool to your fishing reel and slide D onto the dowel. To apply a little tension on the line, put a rubber band around item A near the end opposite of the spool. To small of a rubber band will cause to much tension on the line. Set the spool holder on the floor or a table and connect the line to your fishing reel. Reel and wind line onto the fishing reel.
