Guest edited by legendary cricketer Lord Botham of Ravensworth, aka Beefy, our bumper Christmas issue is full of festive cheer and Boxing Day nostalgia from regular contributors James Percy, Jeremy Hobson and Sandy Swinton. Further afield we cross over to Greenland for some walked-up ptarmigan and head to the sunnier climes of the Caribbean for some salt-water fly fishing. This issue’s cover artist, ecologist Justin Prigmore picks out his best oil paintings of game in snow and Beefy’s favourite sporting artist John Hurst reveals how the two of them first met. We also head to Glasgow for COP26 to see how the Missing Salmon Alliance secured a stunning art installation in the UN-managed Blue Zone to help raise awareness of the species. There’s also seven pages of Christmas gift ideas - ranging from newly released products to feel-good charity gifts. We have an incredible selection for game recipes from Tulchan’s head chef Ollie Wilson and of course, James Goodhart review’s Beefy’s New World wine from his very own label that was launched at Lord’s Cricket Ground.
