Mud Hole Rod Building & Tackle Crafting Corp. has signed a sponsorship agreement with Fins Media Group, one of North America's largest outdoor media companies.

Mud Hole will be featured in Fins Media's top two TV series, Fins & Skins Classic Adventures plus the award-winning Fishing the Flats saltwater series, both hosted by master angler Henry Waszczuk who has been on TV for nearly three decades.

The two TV series appear on a wide variety of North American networks including WFN, FOX Sports, DISH Network, Canada's The Sports Network (TSN), TSN2, Global and more.

In turn Mud Hole and its all new MHX brand are adding Waszczuk to its MHX Pro Team.

"Henry brings a wealth of fishing knowledge and exposure to complement the growth of rod building and tackle crafting under Mud Hole's MHX Brands," said Mud Hole's Scott Gimbert. "Check out 'Hank's Tip of the Week' on Fishing the Flats as Mud Hole presents segments on tip top & guide replacement, handle repair and many other great rod building tips".

Waszczuk said, "With MHX's new exciting series of rod blanks, Mud Hole has utilized some new technology that is second to none. Each blank has been developed more for specific pelagic fish and applications than just generic models. Whether you travel to great fishing hot spots around the world like I do or fish close to home this new line of blanks will soon be your go-to stick."

"MHX rod blanks are the best blanks on the market - hands down," he added.
Waszczuk's 2014 TV series begin April 1.
