Shakespeare Ugly Stik

My love for fishing began as a 6 year old boy, learning to cast off a dock in Northern Ontario.  I started out using a kids combo fishing rod which provided me hours of fun catching rock bass and sunfish.  For my 9th birthday I was given the fishing rod of my dreams...A Shakespeare Ugly Stik Ultra Light combo.  After begging to go fishing as soon as the ice melted, my love for fishing was taken to another level. 

Catching smallmouth bass on an Ugly Stik was like nothing I had experienced before.  The fight was intense with the rod providing great action.  Shakespeare Ugly Stik has developed new youth fishing rods that I only wish I could have used as a kid.  If you're looking to bring a young person into fishing, look no further than the Amphibian rod and reel combo.

Now as an experienced fisherman I continually go back to the Ugly Stik when purchasing a new rod.  I now own three of these fine fishing rods/reels and thoroughly enjoy the action and intensity of catching a monster pike or pickeral (walleye).   The reels are smooth as butter with a nearly unbreakable rod.  I have also now purchased a series of Shakespeare Ugly Stiks, including the downrigger combo and ice fishing combo.  There's nothing like catching a fat chinook salmon or beautiful rainbow trout on an Ugly Stick downrigger.  You may fight the fish for several minutes, but the only worry in my mind is having the hook pop out, never the rod breaking. 

The ice fishing combo is also an excellent setup for those short intense fights down the icehole.  You can literally bend the rod nearly in half without damaging it for future usage.   A personal favorite is the Ugly Stik Synergy.  This rod can handle the smallest fish to fish around the 10 pound mark.  I have caught several hundred fish on the rod and reel combo and have yet to have an issue.  The sensitivity of this rod allows you to play the fish as well as feel your way through weeds, rocks, and other underwater obstacles.  As I am partial to spinning reels I am also a big fan of both the Agility reel and Intrepid reel.  With multiple bearing systems both reels allow for smooth reeling and great feel (not to mention they look good).  Shakespeare has now moved to a 10 bearing system with the Deceiver and I can wait to get my hands on one of those. 

As I explore all aspects of fishing from trolling, jigging, downrigging, deep sea, and ice fishing, I will always trust the Shakespeare Ugly Stik.  Combos are as affordable as a product can be with the history of ingenuity that  is the Ugly Stik.  I have tried other rod and reel combos and some of them were supposedly top of the line.  The best bang for your buck is clear in my mind and will never go back to another rod or reel.   I would recommend these rods and reels to anyone who is serious about fishing and is looking for economical and durable equipment.
