Fieldsports Britain – Lake District hunting, shooting, fishing special – episode 8

Could you ask for better sport? The Lakeland fells covered in brick red bracken with a bright blue sky atop, it’s time to go fellhunting with the Coniston Foxhounds. Incredibly, this was just a week before the Cumbria floods. And while we’re there, we go out after snipe and duck on the Morecambe sands with the Grange Wildfowlers and visit William Wordsworth’s favourite pike fishing lake, Rydal Water. Then
we’re back down to the South of England on a driven pheasant day in Kent. It’s all in our Fieldsports Britain programme, out now.
