The Pear Leads have a slightly sleeker profile than the Square Leads. They still retaining the ability to hold on marginal or island slopes yet they're much better suited to use on rivers. As with the Square Leads, they fit the Micro Lead Clip perfectly and are finished in with a coating that's been formulated to match the lakebed found in most commercial venues.
Embryo Calender 2018, "I am extremely proud to present to you the Embryo Angling Habitats 2018 calendar. You, the angling community purchased 2700 of the 3000 calendars we printed for 2017. Because no one took a profit from the sale including the tackle shop you bought this one from it created £18,900 of revenue that will be spent on two fences for lakes that simply could not afford it from their own reserves. Dorchester Lake (Abingdon and Oxford Anglers Alliance) has sadly lost several of its most sought after specimens to Otter predation prior to our offer for fencing, an extended ‘planning’ issue delayed the fences installation but it is now set to be completed by spring 2018, so it's remaining jewels will be safe forever. Embryo are also donating five ‘special’ Priory Fisheries mid doubles to this venue to help rebuild its stock without changing its unique atmosphere. The second venue is Colchester Angling Preservation Society’s ‘Bovington’ Lakes. CAPS are a hugely worthy club who provide a huge range of open access fishing for a big membership. I have always been inspired by the amazing angling photography on Instagram so it felt fitting to invite budding photographers from all over the globe to submit their best shots for 2018. We had well over 5000 entries and choosing the final 12 was nigh on impossible because there were so many spell-binding images. Thanks to all who entered, the overwhelming response has cemented this calendar as an annual event, which is set to hopefully become a carp angling institution that keeps doing good year after year. Thank you for supporting Embryo by purchasing this calendar, I hope you enjoy the incredible images and use the moon phase calendar and top tips from our best anglers to put extra fish in your landing net. Every calendar will create one meter of fencing for a lake that cannot afford it themselves so your money is literally saving a fishes life….. Thank you. Danny Fairbrass”
Flatliner Pear Inline, The condensed shape of this lead, coupled with the two flat sides makes it the perfect lead for bolt rigs at short to medium range. By its very nature the flat pear lead lends itself to being fished on marginal slopes, the sides or back or gravel bars and in rivers. But, in fact it is one of the most effective shapes at short to medium range because it holds so well on the lake bed and offers fantastic impact hooking potential. We have also seen that this type of lead is by far the most like a stone on the lake bed and during the Underwater filming this lead blended in better than any other. There's a popular misconception that flat leads sit on silt. This does not happen, any lead finds the easiest path through the water so instead of fluttering down to the lake bed, a nose-heavy flat lead like this will plummet down side on and nose first, making it less effective in the silt than say a Swivel Pear lead. Having said that, it is devastating on gravel and is Danny's first choice in these close-range, hard-bottomed situations. Danny told us that, "When Underwater part 3 I tried a Flatliner Pear on the steep gravel slope to see if it really did hook the carp quicker than a swivel lead of the same shape. To my amazement it really did! I had been testing the lead clips for so long I had ignored the inline lead - not any more!" • Please Note: Due to varying stock throughout our stockists, lead colours may vary.

Marker Braid, This braid casts superbly well, thanks to its low diameter, and transmits the feel of the lake bed accurately back to your rod, allowing you to find the very best feeding areas with your marker float setup. It is hard-wearing and has high knot strength, which is key when you consider just how much punishment that your marker setup is subject to over the course of a year. The Marker braid is finished in a SUB-Green colour, to make it as unobtrusive as possible. There are 300m on each spool, so you'll be able to spool up more than once, as long as you back your spool up. We recommend that you use a 30lb Arma-Kord shock leader to take the force of the cast. You can attach this using a back-to-back grinner knot.
Original Kombats, These are not your average outdoor trousers! The deeper you look into their design and features, the more breathtaking attention to detail is revealed. Our in-house fashion designer remodelled the military combat trouser, with style and carp-fishing functionality firmly in mind. The brief was to improve an outdoor classic, and he's done just that. The Original Kombats are lightweight, and quick drying, so you'll quickly dry out from an unscheduled dip, or a heavy summer shower. The material chosen is a 150gsm ripstop fabric that's stretchy, so the Kombats won't rip as you move and it also features innovative mountaineering-grade mosquito repellent and moisture-wicking technology. There are nine pockets on the trousers, both external, and cunningly hidden, so you can keep all your essentials with you at all times, without fear of losing them. The Original Kombats are available in dark olive and rifle green, and in the following sizes: S(w30), M(w32), L(w34) XL(w36), 2XL(w38), 3XL(w40) all regular leg length.
