Shakespeare Baitcasting Reels

So you thought the only “Shakespeare” was the English author and playwright? However, there is another William Shakespeare that has also made his mark in history—in fishing history that is. William Shakespeare Jr. invented a system that has revolutionized the way fishing reels are made today. The Level Wind System allows for the fishing line to be wound back evenly onto the reel’s spool.

This William Shakespeare Jr. also invented a way to prevent overruns or backlashes with his braking system. Backlashing is a very common phenomenon that fishermen experience, when they cast their lines, and the spool stops rotating because the line runs off the spool at a too-slow pace or when the line just stops while the spool is still rotating as the lure reaches the water. Now, more than a hundred years later, Shakespeare’s company still makes some of the best baitcasting reels in today’s market, continuing the tradition of excellence and innovation that their founder began in 1897. Check out our Shakespeare fishing reels today!
