The originality rod builders capture in each of their custom fishing rods is one of the greatest parts. Besides gearing the rod to perform optimally in its specific fishing application, there is something about making a fishing rod and knowing it doesn’t exist anywhere else on the market that makes it all quite rewarding.

For most rod builders, no two rods will look the same or even remotely similar. Considering there’s over 30,000 products available to choose from, the levels of customization are virtually infinite. Whether choosing the blank color, the colors for thread wraps, or even adding decals, a custom rod becomes whatever you imagine.

With all these options, questions are inevitable and Mud Hole’s help line staff wants to be there with support. Answering questions backed by decades of experience, the help line is all about customer service and solutions.

Simply dial 1-(866)-790-7637 or 1-(866)-790-RODS, Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 6 PM or on Saturdays between 10 AM and 3 PM to speak with Mud Holes help line for assistance.
