E. F. Pflueger's Enterprise Manufacturing Company started as a fishing-tackle company in 1881. The company's earliest products included fishing lures and decoys. In 1916, Pflueger's introduced reels, including the Baitcasting Reel and the Medina, a double-multiplying casting reel. Since that time, Pflueger's has made and sold a variety of well-regarded and collectible fishing reels.
