The Enterprise Manufacturing Company &
E.A. Pflueger Company

In 1881 a company was founded by the name of Enterprise Manufacturing Company. Ernest F. Pflueger started started the company making only glass minnows that only made him $100 the first year. By 1886 he had developed enough of a business to organize a company that took over the American Fish Hook Co. of New Haven, Connecticut.

When his son Earnest A. Pflueger took over the family business, he founded the E.A. Pflueger Company. EA Pflueger expanded the company from a hook manufacturer to all aspects of fishing tackle & gear. In 1916 the first Pflueger Baitcast reel was manufactured in Akron, Ohio, and became a benchmark of the fishing reel industry.

Today, Pflueger continues to be one of the world's leading rod and reel manufacturers.
