Embryo Angling Habitats founder Danny Fairbrass oversaw the stocking of 20 C6 carp into the project’s popular Cambridgeshire syndicate, Cawcutts Lake, shortly before Christmas.
All the fish came from West Sussex carp breeders, VS Fisheries, and included 16 twenties to 24¾lb, three of which were striking linears, taking the total stock in the 16-acre venue, near Histon, to approximately 270 fish.
Danny said: “It was great to be part of the recent stocking, especially as the fish were so big and impressive! They all look like growers to me, and I suspect some of them may hit 30lb within 12 months, especially considering the growth rates we are seeing from last year’s stockies. I had a 17¾lb VS Fisheries fish recently which was stocked at 10lb just a year ago.
“The future is very bright for Cawcutts, and I don’t think it will be many years before we have a good head of thirties. It’s an interesting lake, too, with each swim getting a decent amount of exclusive water to fish. The members that I have met are great, and the bailiff team works very hard to keep the place pristine, with a welcoming, positive atmosphere.”
There are 45 places available on the syndicate, split between weekend and weekday rotas. Anybody interested in applying for a ticket should email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit: www.embryoangling.org.
