APPRAISER COMMENTS:

This is a Pflueger Pakron Model No. 3178 fishing reel in excellent
condition. The Model 3178 is a trolling reel and was manufactured in
the years 1952,1956-57, 1959, 1962-63, 1965 and 1967-80.
Ernest F. Pflueger founded a fish hook company called the Enterprise
Manufacturing Company in 1881. When his son Earnest A. Pflueger took
over the family business and founded the E.A. Pflueger Company, he
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. The Pflueger spinning reel was introduced in 1954. Over the
years Pflueger continues to be one of the world’s leading rod and reel
manufacturers.
