Embryo Angling Habitats
Embryo Angling Habitats was founded in the summer of 2014 by Korda Developments owner, Danny Fairbrass. Danny’s vision was to create new fisheries for people to enjoy and help existing fisheries protect their stock from the growing threat of predation.
The Embryo Story
Embryo has two main objectives:
Firstly, to buy and lease their own fisheries. Their venues are run as affordable fisheries with local anglers in mind, with a focus on helping young anglers access the many benefits that angling can offer. Any profits made from venues will be re-invested into the next project.
Secondly, they help others protect their lakes from the threat of otter predation and have fenced numerous lakes since 2015. As well as using their own funds to fence lakes, they also offer a cut price fencing service and can supply fencing materials at a low cost. This is a viable long term project where the maximum amount of angling clubs and syndicates can benefit from the services.
Embryo is focused on the future of the sport. They have a close relationship with numerous stakeholders and work with these (and independently) to look at alternative methods of predation prevention.
The story so far:
22 LAKES OPEN
As of Summer 2021, Embryo has 16 different syndicate venues open as fisheries spanning from Yorkshire to Surrey, plus a six lake day ticket complex in Norton Disney, Lincolnshire.
30+ MILES OF FENCING
Since 2014 Embryo has installed over 45km of otter fencing, this equates to crossing the ‘English Channel’ twice.
8 FUNDED FENCES
Embryo has paid out the full amount (or the lion’s share) required to fence 8 lakes at no cost and with no ties to the clubs who run the lakes.
