12-15-2021 Shipping Update:

The holiday season is upon us! This is just a friendly reminder that today, Wednesday, December 15th, is the final day to guarantee delivery by December 24th using FedEx Ground shipping. Make sure to place your custom rod building orders to guarantee that your gifts are under the tree in time!

After tomorrow (starting 12/16), FedEx does offer additional expedited shipping options.  See below for FedEx cut-off dates. And, if you're in a pinch and looking for a great gift that doesn't require shipping, Mud Hole also offers Gift Cards that can be downloaded and printed at home!

There are classes for beginners and for experienced builders looking for a specific application. This is the perfect gift for the angler or rod builder on your list.

We hope you find everything you need this holiday season.  If you have any questions, please call us, toll free, at 1-866-790-7637.  We're here to help!

Gift Giving Shipping Dates

Mud Hole has everything you need to give the gift of custom rod building and tackle crafting this holiday season. With the largest inventory, best customer service, and the most in-depth and entertaining instructional content on the planet, we're ready for you!

Now that the holidays are here, we are again encouraging Mud Hole customers to prepare for gift giving by shopping early.  FedEx, our primary shipping carrier, is again anticipating unprecedented demand for both home and business deliveries through the remainder of 2021. This will continue to put significant strain on their resources, and will surely impact shipping timelines. Our goal is to keep you up-to-speed on the latest shipping deadlines to ensure that your custom rod building gifts arrive in time for the holidays!

Here's the latest from FedEx regarding delivery deadlines to receive your items in time for the holidays. And, if you're planning to create that special fishing rod your son, dad, or fishing buddy, give yourself plenty of time for building!
