I was asked to show off the latest range of kit from Plano Frabill for the cameras with my good mate and angling pal of 25+ years Dan Sissons (twitter – @langstoneangler)
I’m in no way connected with or sponsored by Plano Frabill but I was really impressed with the whole range especially the ‘Frabill’ clothing and Plano’s water tight range of gear boxes.
The clothing is superb! We were modelling the F1 Hybrid pants and Storm jacket, we wore it over the top of what we already had on which in my case was a t-shirt, hooded fleece and jeans. Not only was it perfectly comfortable but neither of us got too hot, it also blocked the wind brilliantly. We were both really impressed, check out Frabill’s clothing ranges here
The ‘Plano Guide Series’ of protective storage boxes are ideal for anyone who relies on electronic kit in the outdoors. They are a solid polycarbonate construction with a watertight gasket seal and clamp hinges on three sides. These are by far the best storage solution I’ve seen for keeping your expensive electronic kit safe and dry, they are even rated to provide a watertight seal for 30 mins at a depth of one metre. We’re using model number 1470 which is the perfect dimensions to store our boat electronics. I’ll soon be purchasing other sizes for my camera kit and some of the smaller boxes for my lures.

Another impressive innovation from ‘Frabill’ is their conservation landing nets, we had a play with a couple during the shoot. Conservation Series nets are designed with safe catch and release in mind. All nets feature 100% knotless mesh netting, eliminating injuries commonly caused by sharp knots. Flat, linear bottoms reduce fish rolling and support the weight of the entire fish. Most of our fishing is catch and release so we’re really pleased that ‘Frabill’ has redesigned the net. There’s a good selection to choose from, take a look here
I was really impressed with all that we tested during our photo shoot, I’ll certainly be keeping an eye on all products coming through from ‘Plano’ and ‘Frabill’ and will be happy to put them through their paces .
