Build this phenomenal Redfish & Seatrout rod with live, personalized instruction from Jesus Peña!
Jesus swears by the IS701L for durability, functionality and sensitivity. It's gloss white finish contrasts beautifully with bright red wraps and a Red Paua shell inlay.
The LZR guides promise smooth and effortless casting all day, and an ultra-tacky Winndry® polymer handle make this rod a lightweight fishing machine. Jesus has even included a little secret weapon – 'pixie dust' which some say has the power to charm the spookiest reds into taking a bite.

Curt was a fantastic instructor. I was initially on the fence about taking a rod building class virtually, but could not justify the travel expense for going to FL just for a single class. After getting going with the class, the virtual environment that mudhole has set up works really well. It almost feels as though you have one on one points of instruction that you otherwise would not have with the in-person classes. Though this class was intended for someone with a little bit of a rod building background, Curt was able to walk me through any of the questionable steps and explain why we do what we do when building a rod.
Just finished my remote class last week. it was amazing, the instructors Cindy and Curt had so much knowledge and walked me through so easily with different camera angles and different tips and tricks of the trade. They kept the class so exciting with pictures and stories, I absolutely loved it. I ordered multiple blank kits to keep me busy and one kit came with incorrect grips and Cindy and Curt worked to make it right, Curt even sent me a grip kit from his personal stash. The only question I have is to which class to take next!
These instructors were down right awesome !! Thank you so much for the knowledge and experience.

I highly recommend taking this class! This was my first Virtual Workshop I have attended (I did attend an in-person workshop with Mud Hole in 2018); I can't say enough enough nice things about this Virtual Workshop! I enjoyed the online instruction format and learned a ton in this workshop! Curt was our instructor and he has a wealth of knowledge & tips that he shares in the workshop. The rod, kit & supplies you receive are top notch. Curt walked us through the materials, performed demonstrations, and answered any/all questions along the way. If you are on the fence about taking this class, don't hesitate... it's a great class and Curt is an awesome person to learn from! Now I have a fantastic rod and I can't wait to fish with it!!!
I just finished the online basic spinning rod building class this weekend [Aug 2022] that Mud Hole offers for $199. I am brand new at this hobby and figured this would be a great way to get started. What an amazing opportunity. First of all the amount of equipment and supplies I received was more than the cost of entry.
Then class time came on Sat/Sun and it was two instructors Cindy and Mike and two students myself and another student from Oregon. We had personalized instruction, plenty of time to ask questions, they could see us working and helped along the way, we could see them working and they had multiple camera angles. Everything about the class was superior. I’ve done training, recently had online college courses, been in multiple online meetings/presentations and this class was better than anything I’ve seen. In fact it was better than most in person classes.
Just a 65 yr old guy trying to learn a new hobby and I feel like I’m off to a great start. I would highly recommend this class for new and even experienced rod builders.
Well I decided to take this class and boy am I glad I did, Curt was very informative and helpful to everyone in the class. Curt took the time to answer everyone’s questions and helped with the build’s that the students would need to ask as they would show their work being done. Curt made the class a very easy going way to learn as a beginner or as an experienced builder as I am. But you will always learn something new a builder like Curt. I would recommend take any of the classes mudhole offers. The dolphin rod is a great kit, and as they write in the description you get a great deal for the price. The teaching is priceless though. Mud hole’s kits are the way to go as you get a great value for your money.
