Fieldsports Britain – Luck of the Irish: Simply Red’s salmon, grouse and stag

We are top of the hunting/shooting’/fishing pops this week. Chris De Margary and Mick Hucknall of Simply Red own the fabulous Glenmore Estate in Donegal, a paradise for salmon, a haven for deer and – if your as lucky as an Irishman – you might find a grouse. Chris reckons that with the help of the Baronscourt Estate across the border in Co Tyrone, he can achieve a ‘Macnab’ – all three in a day. Since this is Ireland, let’s call it an O’Nab. He has twelve-and-a-half hours of daylight, low water, bright sunshine and a lot of birds, animals and fish that are refusing to come out and play.

That’s not all. Roy Lupton is showing how to turn your dead roebuck into a gleaming white head to hang on your wall, there’s a lad catching a fish with his hair, a man shark-fishing from a kayak, a gang of Hallo Charlies from the USA and the UK, EdgunUSA is here, and the map that matters, Calendar, offers all the news of the season and what to do this weekend.
