Fieldsports Britain – River Test in crisis

We’ve got shooting and fishing this week. First fishing: the River Test is meant to be a world-class angling destination. In this week’s half-hour show on Fieldsports Channel, we’re talking to Hampshire chalkstream luminaries such as Mick Lunn to find out why the gin clear waters are running a murky brown colour – and why the trout fishing is so disastrous this year. Then we find a solution: a beautiful Dorset chalkstream called the Frome, which we visit with fishing writer Clive Graham-Ranger.
That’s not all. We’re looking at the new craze for ‘simulated gameshooting’ which is knocking spots of the standard-issue corporate clay shoot. We’re with Prescott Shooting, which organises these days in Gloucestershire and Worcestershire.
