Summet Pflueger Fishing Reel 1993Lwith Original Box
Summet Pflueger Fishing Reel, the 1993L was made from 1935 until the mid 1950s "one of the great iconic reels of the twentieth century". This reel is in outstanding condition see photos. V L&A of Chicago described the Summet Reel as "made of Nickel Silver treated to prevent discoloration. Attractive ornamental design. Light in weight (8oz) combined with strength, freedom of action, and simplified mechanical principles. Ample line capacity: will hold 75-150 yards of line, according to the size used. Reel is quadruple multiplying with double handle and new greasing disc which permits complete lubrication of gears without taking the reel apart".
In 1881 a company was founded by the name of Enterprise Manufacturing Company. Ernest F. Pflueger started the company making only glass minnows (which made him just $100 the first year). By 1886 he had developed enough 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.
