Mud Hole Rod Building Classes

Have you ever wanted to build your own fishing rod but don't know where to start? This is the class for you. Our rod building classes are taught by top professional rod builders with extensive knowledge of all the state of the art techniques and components that build today's top-performing custom rods. The class also includes over $100 in products you keep!




2 Day Rod Building Course

Our rod building classes are a 2-day event. During the class students will learn all of the proper techniques for building a custom rod start-to-finish.

Day 1: Some of the techniques covered on day 1 include selecting the right components, spining blanks, attaching tip-tops, thread wrapping, cork reaming, guide placement and applying finish.

$100 In Products: You will receive over $100 in products including a CRB hand wrapper, rod blank, reel seat, handle, guides, tip top, thread, decals...and more! You will actually build your own fishing rod and take it home!

Day 2: On day 2 you'll pick up your finished rod and be treated to free advanced skills demonstrations – going beyond the basics, where instructors will give lessons in marbling, decorative wraps, custom cork handles, basic weaving, and custom inlays.

There is nothing quite like face-to-face hands-on instruction from top rod builders!
