Being one of the oldest fishing lure companies in the USA, Pflueger is a very popular name amongst collectors today. Some of the finest antique lure displays contain many pieces by this maker.
The old wooden lures are particularly sought after and there's even a few old Pflueger boxes made of wood that are rare and highly collectible today.
Finding affordable Pflueger bait for your collection is relatively easy on the internet. There are plenty of decent looking lures for sale on collector web sites and auction sites that won't break your wallet. Great for hobbyists or folks just starting out.
The high quality Pflueger lures are out there too! Of course, you can expect to pay more for those that are in mint condition or extremely rare, but just the fact that they are available for purchase is amazing when you think just 20 years ago it would be almost impossible to find such beautiful collectibles!
Today you can just log onto your computer and shop from your own home at your own pace. My favorite way to shop for vintage, antique lures is internet auctions like eBay.
First, I can search for what I want. Second, I can bid a price that fits my budget. If I don't win, I can come back in a few days and see if there's another listing for that lure and try again. Prices fluctuate quite a bit on collecible lures. It just depends on the seller and the demand at the time.
Imagine finding a rare Pflueger Contract Globe in The Otter 1914 box, or a Tuff 1911 Neverfail GE 3 Hook lure with early rainbow finish? Maybe a Bull Dog Spinner or a Wizzard Wiggler or Poprite will pop up on a search.
Finds like these happen everyday and they can certainly happen for you! It amazes me even today how many fantastic vintage Pflueger lures are listed on eBay and other sites. That's great news for us collectors. More listings means better choices and lower prices. Best of all, it means more lures for my Pflueger display!
