Build Todd's "Mosquito Lagoon" Redfish Rod!
MHX lead rod designer and charter captain Todd Vivian has fished this rod all over the southeast for Redfish & Trout, and it performs exceptionally well.
Todd's spinning rod is based on the SJ842, finished in metallic seafoam* with white thread wraps.
Comfort is enhanced by the incorporation of an ergonomic handle design featuring CRB's Palm Swell reel seat and MHX Winndry© polymer grips.
The super light SSR guide train trims extra weight from the build, making this rod a joy to fish for long hours on the water.
*Blank color may vary depending on availability.

Thanks Jesus and Curt for the wonderful class. They are very patient and knowledgeable. I'm not a handy person and feel nervous about the first build. But they made me feel relax during the class to build the rod. Whenever student has doubts about the process, they will repeatedly demonstrate and elaborate. I appreciate they kindly shared loads of information related to the rod building even some of them are out of the beginner class coverage.
You need to take this class! If you fish and want to understand the dynamics or how a custom rod performs, this is the class for you! Mike and Buzz make an excellent team at teaching rod building. They have the ability to go as deep or wide as you need them to cover the particulars of each concept of the build. They even have the ability to pull you into a one on one. The big win for me is this is not a one class and done unless you decide. after the class, they open the door to a weekly advance topic hosted by Mud Hole staff to Broaden your building knowledge. Great Job Guys!
Buzz and Mike are incredibly patient and highly informative I would highly recommended this class for all!!
So if you’re thinking you can’t get the in-person learning experience remotely, you’d be incorrect. The instructors give you so much individual attention, it’s easy to follow along with them on Zoom, and they stay with you until you’ve got it nailed down, even if that means the class runs outside the scheduled hours. Cindy and Curt did a great job, I learned an awful lot in the 3 sessions we had. Now can we talk about value? The rod kit is very nice, and the equipment/supplies that come with the class are worth the entry fee on their own. Best couple hundred bucks I’ve spent in quite some time. I’ll be taking more classes like this for sure.
I would like to thank Jose and Buzz for the Texas Redfish Rod build. They were both excellent instructors and were very informative and answered any questions I had. They were very knowledgeable and made a first timer very comfortable in making his first rod.
