A handle supporting fishing rod rack (

100

) has two spaced apart base members (

102

), a top member (

104

) extending between the base members, and at least one bottom member (

112

) extending between the base members

102.

The top member has a plurality of top openings (

110

), which are top bores

110

A or slots (

110

B), extending therethrough. The at least one bottom member is spaced vertically below the top member and has a plurality of bottom bores (

114

) extending therethrough which are vertically aligned with the top openings. The at least one bottom member is either positioned substantially parallel to the top member or at an angle with respect to the top member that is downward and outward relative to the base members. Indicia (

116

) may be displayed on the at least one bottom member to convey a message to a reader. A brace (

118

) is connected to the top and the at least one bottom members to provide structural support. The bottom member is spaced below the top member such that a bottom bore receives a lower portion of a handle (

14

) of a fishing rod and reel assembly (

) extended through the respective top opening while either a reel (

22

) or a finger grip (
