Ernest F. Pflueger founded the Enterprise Manufacturing Company in 1881 making fish hooks. When his son took over the business in 1906, it changed names to the E.A. Pflueger Company. During this time, Pflueger was the first company to open up commercial production of wooden fishing lures. The company would also grow from being only a hook maker to all areas of fishing gear. As competition in the industry became more fierce the company began to focus more on reels than lures. Two of the lures that the company started with were the Flying Helgramite and the Luminous Crystal Minnow lure. These are two very vintage fishing lures from Pflueger that incorporate the founding E. Pfluegers invention of a luminous lure paint.
Suspending lures. These kinds of lure provide neutral floating effect hence it will neither sink or rise. When it is placed at a certain depth it will remain at that level of depth. This makes it most suitable for chasing hidden trout close to the weed beds, rocky stones or banks. Floating lures. Unlike the top-water lures that float on the surface, these floating lures float just beneath the water surface and is able to float to a depth of more than fifteen feet. The diving depth is determined from the fin point of view to the lure body. The smaller the angle to the lure body, the deeper its able to dive. The movement of the floating lure is also affected by the shape and size of vane and lure body. Floating lures are considered as a "must to bring along" for all lure anglers.
Today learning how to make fishing tackle doesnt have to be like back when I was boy. Even though there isnt a ton of information available the art of making fishing lures has come a long way to helping the beginner. The first step is having a basic knowledge of fishing tackle, design and function and knowing of what lure making supplies you really need. After that the fun can begin as you try your hand at making fishing lures. Here are a couple quick tips to help you out in making wooden fishing lures. 1. Most wooden lures in your tackle box are made of a few different types of wood. Balsa and Basswood are the most common woods used to make fishing lures. However you can make some really great fishing lures out of more common wood found in you local home improvement store. Cedar makes some great fishing lures and you can use both red and white cedar. I have had great success using both. They carve and shape fairly easily and due to the woods water resiliency finish up nicely.
Creek Chub was founded in 1910 by three friends in Garrett, Indiana. The company is named after the creek chub, which is a small fish commonly used for live bait by fishermen. Henry Dills created Creek Chubs first lure, The Wiggler, which had a metal lip that caused the lure to wiggle in the water leading more fish to strike it. Another early lure was the Pikie minnow. This bullet-shaped lure had more than one variation available, allowing for choices on the amount of movement in the water desired. The Open Mouth Weedless, later renamed the Open Mouth Shiner is another early lure. These lures were designed to be weed proof and featured long-shanked double hooks facing backwards so they would drag over snags without hanging on them. Open Mouth Weedless lures are a hard to find vintage fishing lure and all three of these are great examples of Creek Chub vintage fishing lures and collectors items.
