Additionally, Mud Hole Custom Tackle passes on overhead savings when dealing with professional business who know how to order and how to build and assemble a rod. We are not in the business of supplying "underground" businesses that avoid things like taxes, nor are we interested in providing deep discounts to people who simply possess a business license or tax ID number of some sort and want to make some rods.

Expectations

Mud Hole Custom Tackle requires an annual minimum purchase requirement that must be met to retain your wholesale account status. Currently this annual minimum is $500.00 USD. The wholesale discount is intended for professionals within the fishing industry. That being said there are expectations for wholesale customers that extend beyond the qualifications for the account.

Wholesale customers are expected to place orders in professional and efficient manner. This includes having account number and part numbers ready for sales representatives to help expedite the order process. Wholesale customers are encouraged to use the online ordering system as well. While Mud Hole expects wholesale clients to have functional knowledge of the products, the Support staff is on hand to aid in the selection of components as well as provide technical information. Mud Hole’s sales personnel will assist wholesale customers with blank and component selection, however wholesale customers who consume an excessive amount of sales representatives time will be charged retail pricing.

Mud Hole does not have a minimum per order after the opening order, but does require yearly minimums be met to ensure wholesale status remains current year to year. Mud Hole reserves the right to terminate the wholesale status at their sole discretion without notice should these qualifications or expectations fail to be met.

Maintaining a wholesale account with Mud Hole gives business owners access to the largest and most comprehensive selection of Rod Building, Fly Tying and Tackle Crafting in the world. The Mud Hole team looks forward to helping your business grow and prosper, thank you for being part of our team.
