Horizon Nitro Fly Rod

R5,100.00R6,400.00 incl.


2022 marked the launch of the Horizon Nitro Fly Rod series. So what exactly is the Nitro series? It’s a completely new range of rods that will redefine fly rod performance – these rods have the performance of a top-end, American-made fly rod at a fraction of the price.

The prototype sample rods were tested by Anton Hartman, one of the best casters of a fly-rod in South Africa, and Frontier Fly Fishing now has the end result in stock – rods that will blow you away with their performance and build quality. If you’re looking for a stillwater rod that will let you cast to the horizon or pump a long cast into the teeth of a wind, then these are the rods for you. These rods are refinement personified! These rods are fast actioned (as are almost all modern day fly-rods) but are not broom poles!

2022 will see the addition of three new models to the Horizon NITRO Fly Rod line-up – two Euro Nymphing rods and an all-round largemouth yellowfish/saltwater rod.

The 5 weight now comes with 2 tip and 2 second sections.
