SHOOTING

Woodcock: Fieldcraft and Quarry Professor Colin Trotman

A

contemporary book that deals with ‘modern’ facts on the magic of woodcock shooting, a beautifully illustrated book with stunning photographs.

Woodcock: Fieldcraft and Quarry is not just about shooting woodcock; it takes a comprehensive look at the woodcock today from population numbers to migration and the effects of climate change. The book contains a complete roughshooters’ guide with a European dimension; the responsible approach to shooting woodcock – the difference between ‘hunting’ this enigmatic quarry as opposed to simply ‘shooting’ it. The book includes a discussion on the essential tool for any keen woodcock shooter; the ‘specialist’ Springer Spaniel, along with vital information on the best types of gun, cartridges and gear for the sport. The book finishes with a review of the future of woodcock, including protecting the species and the sport.

ick Badshot is dangerous to know. Unless you are the rabbit, pheasant, pigeon or deer he’s trying to shoot – in which case you are utterly safe. He is a passionate and astonishingly unsuccessful field sportsman. He meddles in rough shooting, game shooting, wildfowling, stalking, falconry, ferreting, eel fishing, beagling and cider making. He takes the countryside gospel into schools, starts a mobile pet euthanasia service, has a market stall selling products made from road-kill, can’t read tide tables, and takes his dog for psychoanalysis. And in return, this hilarious, wise, poignant, Pickwickian buffoon is loved by all who read about him. He appears each month in the columns of the Shooting Times, spouting buckshot, bullshit and occasionally wisdom. Now his exploits are collected in a superb new book, each misadventure beautifully illustrated by James Wade.

Out for a Duck A Celebration of Cricketing Calamities Ian Valentine Foreword by Henry Blofeld Illustrations by Oliver Preston

C

ricket is usually told from the viewpoint of the winners. Out for a Duck: A Celebration of Cricketing Calamities champions the unfortunate cricketers who made those victories possible. For every record knock or wicket haul, every partnership or brilliant catch, there will be a batsman, bowler or fielder who has been on the receiving end. No cricketer is spared failure in his career. As Sir Don Bradman’s zero in his final appearance proved, calamity strikes when least expected. Sooner rather than later, the cricketing gods will have some fun at their expense. This light-hearted read reveals the ostrich moments that famous names would rather forget: the golden ducks, horror bowling spells, costly drops, comedy run outs, team collapses and umpiring howlers, which are etched forever in Wisden.

Sight fishing expert Landon Mayer teaches you what you need to know to spot the trout before you cast – because if you can see a trout, you are more likely to catch that trout. With detailed instructions on how to cast into tricky spots, how to present the fly whatever the conditions, and how to read the rise, he gives you the extra edge to find and catch more and larger fish.

‘Stroup’s seven common-sense principles along with the illustrations by Dave Hall take a lot of the frustrating guesswork out of what many consider a difficult sport... Reading this book is like having a guide accompany you on every trip to a stream, and it should be a valuable addition to your fly-fishing library.’ Charles Meck, from the foreword

NEW TITLES

Dennis Moss

The essence of this book is about wild fishing with a fly rod, beginning with early days on a humble tributary of the River Thames learning the art of fly fishing, and concluding on the majestic wide open spaces of the limestone loughs of the west of Ireland. As well as reminiscences, there are topical thoughts and observations about conservation of wild stock, the effects of angler pressure, and favourite flies.

FISHING

Irish Rise: Reflections of Days by Lake and Stream

The underlying theme that hopefully comes through is a love of fly fishing in wild places; in particular hunting big brown trout with a dry fly on the rich clearwater loughs of Ireland.

AUTUMN 2010

There has been no golfers’ guide by an amateur for forty years and Rothman, a fine golfer with a 4 handicap for over 50 years, has made an intense study of the great golf guides such as Peltz and Cochrane, which with his own observations have contributed to a wealth of telling tips - just what the club golfer needs.

Well known in the shooting and racing worlds - as he is in clubland - Bobby may have come from a wealthy background but he certainly had to work hard in the family engineering firm on leaving school. The result is a breadth of vision which will delight his legion of friends and admirers.

Frank Sheardown defines a lurcher as ‘a crossbred between any longdog and a breed other than a longdog’. This book is, therefore, about dogs that result from the matings of a longdog and other breeds such as gundogs, guard dogs or sheepdogs. In addition to looking at the lurcher as it is bred today and what can be found of the breed around the world, the author looks at the practical aspects of breeding, care and dog management.

This book deals with the origins and uses of the main working terrier breeds and discusses how to care for and use these terriers for pest control. It covers breeding and showing and explains the versatility of each breed. It also discusses, in great detail, the qualities needed in a working terrier and why certain breeds are best suited to certain terrain. It is full of practical information for both the beginner and the experienced terrier man.

The Roe Deer

Roe Deer

This book covers the natural history of this beautiful animal: its biology, reproduction and behaviour are described in layman’s terms. Conservation topics include the impact of man on deer, and of deer on man, the problems raised by over-population, and damage to forestry, farming and gardens with advice on mitigating it.

The natural history and behaviour of roe deer is explained by an author who has a lifetime of study behind him. Sections follow on the vital question of the damage done to trees and growing crops and the methods of limiting it; management and cull planning; the law as it affects deer and deer stalkers; and basic equipment. The final part spans the stalker’s year, month by month, with a host of tips which every stalker will find interesting and advantageous reading.

The Top Twenty-five Trophies Peter Flack

The most interesting record of its time. Men for All Seasons is the story of the professional hunters. During the twentieth century they were at first amateurs and by chance many of them evolved into professionals. Philip Percival, Bill Judd, Alan Black, Bill Ryan, Andy Anderson, the Cottars are all included.

‘No one in modern times, perhaps not ever, has hunted Africa as widely as Peter Flack, and few among us are as astute in our observations. This book is Peter’s tribute to his own list of Africa’s top twenty-five game animals, his ‘icons of African hunting’. Some of his choices are obvious, others are surprising. His “icons” will fuel heated campfire discussions for many years to come!’ Craig Boddington
