In order to pull up compatible parts for your reel, we’ll need to know your products model number. If you’re lucky enough to still have the owner’s manual that came with your reel, you can find the model number information there. If not, you’ll need to do a bit of searching. All Pflueger reels will have the model number listed on the unit itself. Most of the time it’s engraved, but it may be on a small sticker. So make sure you look around the reel. Once you locate the engraving/sticker, you should see either a model number or a model name. This may look something like PFLCRITERION LP, BW6040, PFL1810SC, or even 4410C.
Do you have any articles on old Pflueger reels. Would love to send you a photo of a Redifor with jewel caps and a Supreme with fish emblem without number but marked B on the foot.
About the lures, do you sell these?
Lots of thanks,
Francis Sta Maria
there are no further articles or posts about antique Pflueger reels, but if you like to add some photos. Don’t hesitate to send me an email with pictures. They would be a good addition to this post.
Throughout the early part of the 20th century, Pflueger produced numerous minnows and bugs, some weighted, some designed to float. But the competition from Heddon and others proved too much for the company. Fortunately, lures were not its only source of revenue. Indeed, Pflueger reels would keep the company independent until well after the middle of the century.
