2024 Minneapolis Rod Building Class

I genuinely enjoyed my time while taking the beginner rod building class in the Minneapolis area. The instructors were equally knowledgeable, patient while keeping us focused on the task at hand, and entertaining. I absolutely would suggest this class to anyone who is even mildly interested in learning how to build a fishing rod. What you learn and what you come home with make it worth every penny.

James Benson (Big Lake, MN, US)
Great class

Really enjoyed and learned a lot. I definitely will be building myself some rods. The instructor’s were great and handled the small room and large class very well.

Kris Moe (Springfield, MN, US)
Great class and instructors

I walked in not knowing that to expect. I'd never watched a video on rod building or really looked into doing it myself at all. When I left I had a rod that was more comfortable, better balanced, and better quality than any of my other rods! On top of that I had a huge wealth of knowledge that is absolutely priceless. The instructors made a in depth and fairly difficult process easy to understand and replicate within 12 hours of class time. I definitely look forward to doing similar classes with them!

Dan Halstead (Lakeville, MN, US)
