Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

EM­BRYO Angling Habi­tats has cre­ated a non-profit-mak­ing calendar, pro­ceeds from which will go to build ot­ter fences around fish­eries that can­not af­ford them.

The Pi­o­neer­ing fish­ery im­prove­ment or­gan­i­sa­tion, founded by Korda Tackle boss Danny Fair­brass, has vowed to put £7 from each calendar sold into a scheme that will see nu­mer­ous strug­gling angling clubs and not-for­profit syn­di­cates ben­e­fit from ad­di­tional protection from preda­tors.

Speak­ing ex­clu­sively to Angling Times, Danny said: “The threat from ot­ter pre­da­tion is

in­creas­ing ev­ery year, and more and more his­toric wa­ters are be­ing ru­ined with the loss of their prized fish.

“We aim to stop this and re­verse the down­ward trend in avail­able fish­ing.

“No-one in­volved in the pro­duc­tion of this calendar has taken a sin­gle penny from it, in­clud­ing the pho­tog­ra­phers, who have pro­vided their amaz­ing im­ages to­tally free of charge – a very noble ges­ture which we ap­plaud them for.”

The calendar, which alerts an­glers to which days in 2017 will be best to fish, will cost £8 and can be pur­chased from all Korda stock­ists.
