Launched in 2003, the HORIZON fresh-and saltwater rods have became firm favourites amongst many South African fly-fishermen.
- 9-weight, 9-foot 0-inch, 4-piece
The 9’0” 9-wt is is the top selling saltwater fly-rod within the Horizon range and with good reason – it’s not just a great all-round saltwater rod for the South African coast but is also the ideal rod for species in exotic destinations like the Seychelles and Mauritius. It is also the perfect rod for tigerfish in the Zambezi River and other environs where they are found. The 990-4 TSS features an ultra-fast action to deal with the wind and has a short fighting butt typical of a rod like this.
- 12-weight, 9-foot 0-inch, 4-piece
When you are targeting large fish like giant trevally off the coast of South Africa or on the flats of the Seychelles or Mauritius, a 12-wt is the rod of choice for all serious anglers. The 1290-4 TSS fly-rod will handle these hard-fighting fish and thanks to its ultra-fast action it will drive large 6/0 flies into the wind with ease.
- 15-weight, 8-foot 3-inch, 4-piece
If you are looking for a fly-rod to tame all but the largest saltwatwater fish anywhere in the world, the 1583-4 is the rod for you. Tested on tarpon of well over 200lbs in Costa Rica and the rod broke the fish’s spirit faster than any other rod we’ve used on these huge fish. This is just the sort of rod you’d want for yellowfin tuna off the Western Cape coast. This rod has immense backbone and pulling power. The rod has a fighting grip mated to the handle and has an extra-long fighting butt to fit into a fighting bucket.
