Current Issue

The latest issue of Fieldsports Journal is guest-edited by Welsh former rugby union player Sir Gareth Edwards CBE who was once dubbed ‘the greatest player of all time’. In his nine-page no-holds-barred interview, the superstar scrum-half reveals his other great passion in life - fieldsports. His obsession with fishing and shooting has taken him all over the world as he combined rugby tours and speaking engagements with the opportunity to experience country pursuits in far-flung places. Gareth’s weighty issue takes readers on a tour of his home country, as we report on the mighty Plas Dinam shoot in Powys and interview his Cardiff-based best friend Nick Williams OBE who is the chairman of GWCT Wales, plus we speak to third-generation river bailiff Chris Rees about uncovering a salmon poaching ring on the river Dee near the border. Further afield Simon K. Barr travels to Russia on a DIY fishing trip that left him catching monster salmon and dodging camo-clad poachers then we follow him to Uganda where he hunts in the footsteps of Kamamojo Bell using a replica Rigby with open sights. Of course, all the regular contributors such as James Percy - talking about summer fishing - and Jonathan P. Kennedy talking about property -are on hand with their regular columns. And lastly, there’s an exclusive interview with legendary cricketer Allan ‘Lamby’ Lamb, where he tells all about meeting up with Sir Gareth on Junction Pool every spring.
