Horizon Tactical Freshwater Fly Rod

The Horizon Tactical Freshwater Fly Rods have been designed to provide anglers with a well-rounded, high-performance fly rod.

The Horizon Tactical Series Fly Rods cover all aspects of freshwater fishing in Southern Africa, from tackling tiny alpine streams with the 1-weight, to chasing largemouth yellowfish with the 7-weight.

Our design philosophy was to develop a range of rods that excelled at each of its own disciplines.

The 1-weight has a quick action to deliver flies on target with minimal false casts.

The 3-weight is designed to fish rivers and stream where control and presentation is key. It also has enough backbone to fish on small ponds.

Our 5-weight rod is designed as an allrounder, it is as comfortable on Sterkfontein Dam as it is in Dullstroom or tubing a KZN lake.

The 7-weight has enough pulling power to tackle any freshwater species in South Africa. It can also be used for light saltwater fishing and has been fitted with saltwater-safe components.

Horizon Tactical Saltwater Fly Rod

The Horizon Tactical Saltwater Fly Rods are built for the demands of the saltwater angler.

The blank is finished in a metallic blue, all the fittings are saltwater safe with an anodised reel seat. They are built tough to manage harsh saltwater environments.

Having fished in numerous saltwater environments, we designed and developed these rods to cast well, without sacrificing pulling power. These are high performing casting rods, but we have maintained all the power in the butt section you will need.

The 9-weight is a great flats rod, but is equally at home casting an intermediate line in the surf, or a heavy sinking line on the Zambezi.

The 12-weight will deliver a fly accurately at distance and has more than enough stopping power to subdue any flats species.

Our 15-weight the lifting power to beat any Bluewater species.

Horizon Rookie Fly Rod

The Horizon Rookie Fly Rod is the perfect rod for the beginner fly-fisher. The Rookie rod plugs an entry-level price point, but the rod is anything but entry-level when it comes to performance.

The design team created a forgiving rod, but retaining a powerful, fast action feel, allowing for casting stroke errors, without a degradation in performance.

With a medium-fast action, the rod is great to learn on, but will not be outgrown after the initial learning curve. Beautifully finished in gloss black, the rods look good, feel great and fish above their price-point.
