Fieldsports Journal Issue IV • III

Guest edited by Dragons’ Den star Theo Paphitis, this stand-out issue looks at how shooting and fishing play a pivotal role in his busy life. His great friend Paul White MBE tells us about how his annual clay shoot has raised in excess of £750,000 for Willow and sporting artist Clare Haggas encourages us all to discard the lockdown sweatpants and dress up for the shooting field this coming season.

Plus James Percy recounts tales of fishing from his youth, Lady Martha Sitwell explains why she loves hunting pike and Matt Harris shares his best rivers for catching salmon in Iceland. We hear all the latest news from the British Game Alliance and Simon Ward gives us some shooting exercises to do indoors. Legendary chef Mark Hix MBE offers four new ways for cooking game and we meet the young new team at Forthampton shoot. As always Fieldsports Journal is full to the gunwales with long form journalism and knock-out photography so once you’re off the treadmill of Zoom calls make space in your life for catching up with our writers and commentators.
