Pflueger® first came into being in 1881 when Ernest F. Pflueger founded a fish hook company called the Enterprise Manufacturing Company. When his son took over the family business and re-named it the E.A. Pflueger Company, he decided to expand the company from being a mere hook manufacturer to one that manufactured and sold a full line of fishing tackle and gear.
The first Pflueger baitcast reel was manufactured in 1916 and it became an icon within the fishing reel industry. In 1954, the company introduced the Pflueger spinning reel. And now, all these years later, Pflueger continues to be one of the world's leading rod and reel manufacturers — delivering top-quality and dependable fishing products that even the most discriminating angler can count on.
