That year, however, would mark the start of a new direction for the company, when pro angler Mike McClelland won two back to back BASS events on a War Eagle spinnerbait. A few months later in the Spring of 1997, pro angler Gerald Swindle won a major FLW event on a War Eagle spinnerbait.
War Eagle Lures quickly spread to other parts of our country, due to small independent retail stores that were, once again owned by avid bass anglers. Slowly but surely, War Eagle Lures have spread from coast to coast, growing little by little each year.
War Eagle Lures has continued to grow over the years because our products are still made in AMERICA by people who fish. We still used the highest quality components that we can buy. Over the years, we have listened to you, the fishermen, to improve our product selection of quality lures that catch fish right out of the package
