No. 6,041,541 to Davis discloses a fishing line threader. The Davis patent includes a fishing hook threading mechanism that can be temporarily attached to a fishhook eye to allow a user to easily and quickly thread a fishhook. U.S. Pat. No. 6,625,921 to Friederichs discloses a fishhook threader. The Friederichs patent includes a fishing device having a wall, the wall defining a large opening, a small opening and a slit, the large opening operably communicating with the small opening through the slit.

In order to make the fish line threader suitable for low light conditions a luminous paint or material can be applied to the convergent surfaces of the fish line threader to provide a luminous convergent surface to assist the person in directing the end of the line through the aperture.
But out of the University of Texas and Australia's University of Wollongong shows futuristic inventions can be rooted in the mundane. By twisting fishing line and thread like a rubber band, the scientists produced artificial muscle 100 times stronger than human muscle.
Referring to FIG. 1 and FIG. 2 of the drawings, reference numeral 10 generally indicates a one-piece fishing line threader attached to a fishhook. The line threader 12 is attached to the fishhook eye piece 13 by an adhesive, which is sufficiently strong to hold the threader on the eyepiece during normal handling but sufficiently weak so as to be removable with finger pressure. A fishing line 11 is in position to be channeled through my line threader 12 and through the fishhook eye piece 13. The fishhook is comprised of the eye piece 13, a shank 14, and a barb 15. Once the fishing line 11 has been channeled through line threader 12 and through fishhook eye 13, the line threader 12 can be disengaged from eye piece 13 so that the fishing line 11 can be tied in a knot and fastened securely onto the fishhook without the threader 12 located thereon.
