Pflueger Captain Reel USA

Vintage Pflueger “Captain” Fishing Reel USA



Since 1881 the Pflueger name has been part of the fishing industry when Ernest F. Pflueger founded a fish hook company called the Enterprise Manufacturing

Company. When his son Earnest A. Pflueger took over the family business and founded the E.A. Pflueger Company, he 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. The Pflueger spinning reel was introduced in 1954. Over the years Pflueger continues to be one of the world’s leading rod and reel manufacturers.

Here is a nice Pflueger “Captain” fishing reel, with black handles. Marked “Pflueger Captain Made in U.S.A.” on the handle side. The spool is 4 3/4″ in diameter, and 1″ wide. This reel is in good condition, works well, and has smooth action. It would be a great addition to any collection of American-made fishing reels.
