Shakespeare Fishing Tackle - Over 108 Years of Excellence in Fishing Tackle

1896 – William Shakespeare, Jr., an avid fisherman of 27 years, wanted to improve on existing fishing reels so he came up with a device for winding fishing line evenly back on the spool. William designed the level-wind reel and his new design was superior to anything on the market. As a result, this feature is now common on most fishing reels.
 
1939 – Anglers needed a way to apply a light action reel brake to prevent spools from back-lashing so William Shakespeare Jr. invented one, the "Backlash" Brake. The new Wondereel® was one of the most popular reels to ever hit the fishing tackle market. At the same time William designed a new two-gear direct drive reel.

1947 – The company is in it's 50th year of operation. Henry Shakespeare (William's son) is in charge. He introduces the President Reel and the newest innovation in fishing rods – the glass fiber Wonderod®. Invented by Dr. Arthur M. Howald, this rod revolutionized the fishing rod market and made bamboo and steel virtually obsolete.

1966 – Shakespeare acquires the Pflueger® Company (formerly known as The Enterprise Company).

1972 – March – Shakespeare Company listed 2,479,680 shares of stock on the New York Exchange under the ticker name SKP.

2002 – The Pflueger® brand is on the rise with a complete line of Pflueger "premium products". Whether spinning, baitcasting, or fly fishing, Pflueger has just what the avid angler needs.
