First catalogued in 1902-04, by the 1930s the Enterprise/Pflueger Company had grown to include many fishing reels; these were a popular product for the company. Sometime around 1914 reels were offered from Enterprise under three trademarks, Pflueger Bulldog, Four Brothers “ so named after the four sons of E. F. Pflueger”, & Portage, this trademark previously used by one of the brothers, E.A. Pflueger and used by him for a short time beginning in 1906 when he stepped down from Enterprise and formed the E.A. Pflueger Company.
Enterprise remained a top leader in reel manufacturing into the 1960s, producing a great variety of models over the years, everything from tiny fly reels to large saltwater reels, including some of the most popular casting reels ever created. In 1965 the company branding was changed to The Pflueger Corporation. Later it was purchased by The Shakespeare Company. Pflueger reels are manufactured today by Pflueger Sporting Goods, a Division of Shakespeare. The Pflueger Company's long history of building reliable fishing equipment only adds value to the collection of reels located by persistent collectors. Here we will document the great Pflueger & 4 Brothers reels we have in our collection. Some of the greatest casting reels of all time, our Pflueger Summit 1993-L is in very rare condition.
