With teachers time stretched, classroom size growing and funds spread thin in Wildlife, Recreation and Outdoor activities, the need for extra student hands-on activities will dramatically keep students engaged.

Rod Building and Tackle Crafting programs fit that need and are a strong and growing activity in classrooms across the USA. With the addition of Rod Building and Tackle Crafting in the classroom, teachers with be able to spark the students' interest in not only a new hobby but an extra career choice to offer them. After preliminary discussions and demonstrations, students become extremely interested in the hands on activities of building fishing rods and crafting tackle. Basic rod kits and tackle crafting kits are needed to start the program with the purchase of basic equipment that will be used for many years to help additional students reach new goals.

Mud Hole Custom Tackle has successfully started rod building and tackle crafting programs in over 400 institutions across the USA with over 3,500 students completing the programs. These programs feature very high success rates. Many programs have become self-funding with the addition of auction programs where the students sell their completed fishing rods, with the proceeds re-invested in the programs.
