There’s nothing like catching fish on a rod you built with your own two hands!
That is why Mud Hole Custom Tackle has hit the road on a mission to teach as many anglers around the nation as possible to build their very own custom fishing rods! All the tools and materials to build custom rods are included in the two day class, and best of all... you get to keep it all - including your first custom rod!
Casting or Spinning? The choice is yours.
All students have their choice between a 6'6" spinning or 6'6" medium power casting rod from pre-assembled kits (included in the price of the class). Choose your favorite accent colors and even personalize it with your choice of custom decal. Not only do we provide all of the necessary tools and supplies, but you get to keep them when you leave!
