Shakespeare Bank Stik

Designed for Bank Anglers

COLUMBIA, SC July 14, 2014 – Most anglers have fished from the bank at one point or another. Branches, coolers and various other items have often been used as rod holders. Shakespeare® has developed a unique way for bank anglers to store their rod holder with the new, patented Bank Stik™.


Shakespeare since 1897 logoThe patented, durable fiberglass rod holder stores easily away in the butt of the rod blank, making it easy to carry to any waters. With EVA grips, secure reel seats and stainless-steel guides, the Bank Stik is great for casting and reeling in the catch.

With four rods and four combos available in light, medium, and medium-heavy actions, there is something for everyone. Spinning reels, offered in sizes 25, 30 and 50, are equipped with an aluminum spool and one bearing.
