“Our class in January quickly sold out within a month of announcing this year’s dates,” said Mud Hole’s Todd Vivian, a veteran instructor in the now five-year program. “We’ve expanded classes with more cities, open to more attendees with bigger classrooms in bigger hotels’ conference rooms. Most classes fill-up quickly.”

The other upcoming cities and dates include:

“We still have the same personal attention with an extra instructor or two,” said Vivian.

“The one-and-half day classes begin on Saturdays starting at 9 a.m. and last to 7 p.m. Sunday classes offer more instruction and the completion of the rod from 9 a.m. till noon.” He said tuition for the Orlando classes is $125. All of the other cities it’s $149. A quality 6’6” spinning rod from a pre-assembled kit is included in the tuition.

“Once you try it you’ll want to build other rods for fly, ice, bait casting, surf and more.”
