The 590-4 GTS is the first of the rods to be released in the HORIZON GTS rod range and was extensively field tested for casting- and fishing performance by Terry Babich and Jack Lotter on various fish species including South Africa’s indigenous sharp tooth catfish. The HORIZON GTS fly-rods are made from super-high, 48 million modulus graphite which delivers a very light, strong-walled blank with a very low swing weight. All fittings on the rod are top-end including an aluminium rod tube. The HORIZON 590-4 GTS fly-rod is the ideal rod for stillwater fishing as well as for anglers looking for a powerful rod to tackle smallmouth yellowfish on rivers like the Vaal and Orange.
