Powys based Frenzee are known for a series of innovative pole pots including the Big Daddy, but they also do a range of pole floats aimed firmly at the commercial fishery angler. They are all noted for their sturdy long stems, even the dibber style FD100 which has a strong wire stem that gives stability when fishing bigger baits up in the water.

The FP400 is another classic shallow float which is more suited to caster fishing, although it does go up to a gramme and can be used for meat as well – in fact with the long carbon stem it has something of the old ‘pole-stick’ design that seems to have disappeared. The FP100 and the FP200 are both sturdy patterns with balsa bodies and a long, strong carbon and plastic tip that are suited to fishing on the deck in deepish water with corn, meat or pellet. The FP200 has a spring tip eye that can’t rip out under pressure.

The FP300 is a more sensitive pattern with a long, thin bristle suited to maggot fishing and any shy biting fish, and it comes in sizes up to 2gr so is useful to have in your box in the big sizes when there’s a lot of tow or wind on the water. The most unusual pattern in the range is the FP500 – it’s very like a float I imported myself from Dino Floats in Hungary for a while – the long, thin body shape is used a lot by roach anglers on the continent.

Like a few of these floats, they are quite big for their weight in my opinion, but this is a self cocker, with a spring tip eye and a very long bristle. The wire stem adds excellent stability and with the long bristle I think they are worth trying as a paste float – I know several anglers who love using self-cocking paste floats – although I can’t get on with them myself. It comes in sizes from 0.3gr to 1.5gr.
