“Build the rod you never thought you could have”

Get Bit Outdoors believes that a fishing rod is not just a tool used to catch fish… it can be an extension of yourself.  That is why we take such pride and care equipping custom builders with the knowledge and components to fit their specific needs and applications.   We want your rod to not only have superior performance, but share your personality as well.   By enrolling in our Get Bit Rod Building Academy we will teach you how to be more involved in the sport we all love.  We also encourage you to share this experience with your loved ones.  Invite your friends and family to our classes to join in on the fun.  Be it father and son, father and daughter, or two best friends; Get Bit Rod Building Academy offers a great opportunity to learn a new skill while bonding over the love of fishing.  For a complete schedule of our classes, call 1-866-GETBIT1.
