For 12 years the team at Frontier Fly Fishing searched for a premium float tube manufacturer who would manufacture a boat for us that would meet our highest standards. In 2013 we found the manufacturer we were looking for. The manufacturer of the Horizon Troutstalker float tube manufactures the world’s finest float tubes and pontoon boats, thus ensuring that we would receive the finest quality float tube on the market.

Our initial design incorporated all the best features we have found in float tubes we have used in 120 years of combined float tubing. The prototypes were tested in September 2013. After some minor modifications and tweaks were made to the initial prototypes, a container-load of boats arrived in May 2014. Since then many more contanier-loads of boats have hit the shores of South Africa. Simply put, there is no better float tube out there.

Only the finest quality materials are used in the construction of the Deluxe version of the Horizon Troutstalker float tube. The first shipment of float tubes came standard with a foam seat and foam backrest but because almost every angler who purchased a Horizon Troutstalker float tube wanted to upgrade to the eminently more comfortable air seat and air backrest, the latest version of our boat – the DELUXE version – features an air seat and air backrest as standard. At the price there is no float tube available in South Africa that can compete.
