The HORIZON TFS series of fly rods is the evolution of Frontier Fly Fishing’s renowned TRS and XRS series of fly 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.
