Further to recent exploratory discussions Frenzee and Marukyu are pleased to announce that from December they will work in co-operation in some key areas - primarily sales and marketing.
Tim Wildermoth, Frenzee Sales and Marketing Manager says
“We are excited to be able to announce this co-operation between ourselves and Marukyu a global partner.
On looking deeper into the possibilities, it became clear that there were so many ways we would improve our range and service to customers.
Combine this with the increased distribution and marketing opportunities and its cost-effective nature, it made allot of sense to work closer together.
From December across most areas of the country customers will find it easier to talk about Marukyu and Frenzee products as our sales people will offer both company ranges, so significantly improving service levels to more customers and creating greater awareness and instore availability for the angler.”
Howard Kaye, Marukyu Europe Ltd. National Sales & Marketing Manager echoed Tim’s statement by saying
“I am delighted to be working alongside Frenzee. Their cutting-edge product range and their ongoing product development marries up perfectly with our extensive and proven range of baits.

Bright sunny conditions awaited the 90 anglers who made their way to Monk Lakes in Kent for the latest Fish 'O' Mania qualifier.
With the top three separated by just 8lbs, every fish was critical late on, followed by a very anxious wait for the all important weigh in.
Holding out for top spot and qualifying on the day was Tidbury angler Ross Harold. Ross qualified from the unfancied Lake 1, peg 12, with 134lbs of F1’s and carp. Ross landed some large carp to 14lbs and qualified for the second year in succession.
Taking close runners up spot was Zoltan Lari who travelled down from Ipswich. Zoltan drew on Lake 3 and caught 127lbs 8oz of carp to 10lbs. Zoltan fished long pole and corn across to the rushes and only fed lightly to keep a steady flow of carp coming.
Third on the day was Peter Upperton from Sutton. Peter drew on Lake 1, peg 36, and caught 126lbs 2oz. Peter fished pole and pellet for a predominantly carp based weight.
Fourth spot went to Ross Bibby who landed 122lbs from peg 22 on Lake 1 and completing the top five was James Grainger, who caught 114lbs 14oz.
Thanks to Morgan and his staff for hosting the qualifier.

The deal was verbally sealed just over a week ago and we feel it will be great opportunity for both parties involved.
Caroline Reed Bag 'Em Matchbaits manager signed contracts with Phil Briscoe on Thursday and finalised the deal. Bag 'Em's consultant Ian Giddins also played a big part with initial negotiations with Phil Briscoe at the lakes.
