Fieldsports Britain – Irish lurchers and Sutherland trout
Sport in Northern Ireland and Scotland this week – looking for the fastest longdogs and gundogs on land and water (lurchers competing for the Master McGrath), picking up tips about shooting straight from Mike Yardley and knocking down Finn McCool-sized bags of crows with Sporting Shooter chef Mark Gilchrist. That’s all at the Shane’s Castle Game Fair in Co Antrim, Northern Ireland. Then we’re off to North-West Sutherland to a land of loch after loch and trout or two in each. Then there’s cooking duck with cherries, when not to drop your phone into the water, a real live American cowgirl, and dressing up like a swamp monster… we could go on.
