Horizon Tactical Freshwater Fly Rods
The HORIZON TFS series of fly rods is the evolution of Frontier Fly Fishing’s renowned TRS and XRS series of fly rods.
Utilizing the latest technologies in blank construction and Nanohoop Technology, the HORIZON Tactical Freshwater Series of fly rods will redefine your thoughts on fly fishing rods.
Horizon Tactical Freshwater Series 180-4
1-Weight, 8-foot 0-inch, 4-piece rod.
This is the perfect rod for small, high country streams where presenting small dry flies and nymphs to wary trout is the order of the day. It has a quick and responsive action, allowing the angler to make minimal false casts and deliver the fly accurately to the target. The shorter 8-foot length aids in accuracy and presentation.
Horizon Tactical Freshwater Series 383-4
3-Weight, 8-foot 3-inch, 4-piece rod.
This is the perfect rod for South Africa’s smaller streams and at a pinch will serve as a light stillwater fly rod. It’s ideal for the streams in the Eastern Cape, Western Cape and KwaZulu-Natal. The 8-foot 3-inch length is ideal for accurate casts out to medium distances and the extra length will help with mending line across currents.
Horizon Tactical Freshwater Series 590-4
5-Weight, 9-foot 0-inch, 4-piece rod.
Building on the Horizon XRS’s reputation, the TFS 590-4 is the ideal stillwater trout rod and will handle any smallmouth yellowfish you’ll tangle with on rivers like the Vaal and Orange. We tested a number of 5-wt rods from the manufacturer before we settled on this taper – it will load at short ranges with a line like Scientific Anglers MPX taper but will effortlessly cast an entire fly line to the middle distance. For anglers looking for a 5-wt rod that will do it all, then this is the rod for you.
Horizon Tactical Freshwater Series 790-4
7-Weight, 9-foot 0-inch, 4-piece rod.
The staff at Frontier Fly Fishing designed this rod with a number of objectives in mind – they wanted a rod that would handle largemouth yellowfish as well as a rod that would cross-over as a light bass- and saltwater rod. The 790-4 TFS meets all these requirements and more. This is a light, fast-actioned 7-wt rod ideal for many applications in South Africa.
