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.
Talking about trout fishing lures, there are indeed the proper lures for different types of trout, this include the rainbow trout, brown trout, lake trout and brook trout. You will need also different lures depending on trout fishing location. This means that you should be prepared to use multiple lures. Bringing just one or two styles of lures will be insufficient. Other things to consider to using the right lure is the water temperature and clarity, underwater plant environment and sunlight which may alter in one given day. So, now we see the reason why there are a huge number of types and styles.
Once you know the various preys, their appearance and behaviors, you can create your own lures with materials easily obtained from sports or hardware stores or even from your junk drawer. You can even make your lures out of such common material as corks, buttons, odorless paints, plastic beads, propellers, rubber shags, and, of course, fishing hooks. Many fishermen avoid commercial fishing lures altogether. They look at fishing as an intricate art calling for their own intelligence and creativeness, for their own innate hunting skills which, like the fish, has a deep history, perhaps as old as a 100,000 years. One thing is certain when using fishing lures youve created yourself: youll feel the maximum joy possible when you get that first bite on a lure youve crafted yourself. Somehow, that fish will taste just a little bit better than all the others youve caught. Man over nature, with your own lure, it a seasoning like no other, aged a 100,000 years in the heart of man.
One of Creek Chubs most important innovations in the lure industry was the process of spray painting lures by spraying the paint through netting. Paint applied to this netting (originally from ladies hats!) was used to create the now common scale patterns on Creek Chub lures. Creek Chub was a very innovative company in other areas as well. Their early adoption of the use of glass eyes on lures and the invention of the weedless bait mentioned above are great examples of this spirit of innovation. Creek Chub also held numerous other patents related to lure improvements.
