An excellent choice for ice fish and open water angling, the Gyeonji Nearctic | Redhorse, is a versatile rod with backbone for fighting larger fish. While it uses the same rod-end winder as the Gyeonji Nearctic | Buffalo, the Redhorse is built on a longer, more limber rod blank. With additional flex, the Gyeonji Nearctic | Redhorse softens fast surges by strong fish. This feature helps to prevent tearout of smaller hooks, especially for Carp, and protects the leader line.
With its high-capacity rod-tip winder drawing 6.5 inches (16cm) of line with each spin, the Redhorse can present flies and baits over a broad area of downstream habitat. With the right fighting techniques, it will also handle powerful fish taking long runs. Other Gyeonji Nearctic | Redhorse design features include the machined aluminum winding check and high-visibility rod end bead.

New colors! The Redhorse - Original features a black fiberglass blank with a red winding check and red rod end bead. We have recently added two more colors, Redhorse - Blue and Redhorse - Red Blank. When fishing with more than one rod, it can be useful to color code, especially when bank fishing, to better avoid confusion with lines and baits.
