Founded in Kalamazoo, Michigan, the Shakespeare Company produced reels that soon became among the most popular on the market, with company chief, William Shakespeare Jr. elected to the National Sporting Goods Hall of Fame. In 1976, the first Ugly Stik rod was introduced, featuring construction processes that made the rod almost indestructible.

By the 1990s, lighter rod materials were being used, without compromising strength, and the Ugly Stik garnered a whole new generation of fans. The parent company of Ugly Stik, 'Shakespeare', joined forces with Pure Fishing in 2007 to form the world's largest fishing tackle company, and the awards and accolades are sure to continue long into the future. Ugly Stik is a fishing industry institution, and possibly the best way for angling newcomers to learn the craft.
