*Note* This is an attempt to recreate the original "Shakespeare Catalog Listings" thread that was lost last year. This will take a while, so hold off posting to this thread, but rather post to the old thread with any comments. Thanks.
Mark

In the following posts will be a chronological list of all the original catalog listings for Shakespeare fiberglass fly rods, from their introduction in 1947 to 1981 or so. This board has agreed to pin the thread, creating a lasting and easily accessible reference for all to use. This will take some time, so bear with me. Also, there are a few catalogs from the mid-1950's that have yet to be found. If any member can contribute info or scans from those missing years, it would be most appreciated. Thanks to all.

**NOTE** Images can take up to a minute to load up. Be patient.

SHAKESPEARE'S 1947 CATALOG.
The very first appearance of their "new" Howald Process fiberglass fly rods. There were only two models offered that year, for a staggering $60.00 each.

THE 1955 SHAKESPEARE CATALOG.
I have yet to see a 1955 Deluxe catalog, but these images were taken from the 1955 Shakespeare "Fly Fishing Tackle" counter pamphlet and the 1955 Canadian Shakespeare catalog.

Image
Image
Image
Image

THE 1955 CANADIAN SHAKESPEARE CATALOG.
Prices are in Canadian dollars, but the references and images should be the same as the regular Shakespeare catalog for 1955. The only difference is that in Canada they were called "Superods" instead of "Wonderods".
