The Field

Jul 01 2021
Magazine

Published by Time Inc. (UK) Ltd The Field is a monthly glossy magazine dedicated to those brave souls who shoot, fish and hunt way beyond the call of duty. Since 1853, its staff has selflessly brought its readers the cream of rural life, be it pheasant shooting, dry-fly fishing or the distinct merits of Cheval Blanc. If you love field sports, errant terriers and very foxy friends at hunt balls, The Field is for you.

Gone fishing… • The prospect of summer evenings spent sea-trout fishing is laden with both excitement and trepidation for Neil and Serena Cross – marital peace is at stake

The Game Fair returns • At last, something to celebrate and look forward to. Book now for the inimitable festival of the countryside at Ragley Hall

Keeping faith with old friends • The move away from lead shot need not mean parting company with our beloved vintage guns

Why we must steel ourselves for change • The end of lead could be upon us sooner than anticipated, so it is essential that we come to terms with using non-toxic shot

OTHER NON-TOXIC SHOT MATERIALS

Small touches that make a shoot day • What are the hallmarks of a perfect driven day? Is it bag size, a shoot lunch or including the dog that allow you to hit the mark as host?

The making of an Irish hunter • An enviable mix of breeding and attitude makes the Irish hunter the perfect companion for a day across the most challenging country

The A-Z of river health • From Acronyms to Zander, via Dredging and Water Companies, we assess the numerous challenges our waterways face today

Sailing the seas of change • The days of fishing and trading under sail may be over, but Britain’s many traditional coastal craft are adapting well to new roles

Sustenance for a staycation • Holidaying in the British Isles – as many of us will be – is a golden opportunity to experiment and explore different dishes and local cuisine

Falling foul of the fowl • Meet the bane of fox, postman and unwanted visitor. When it comes to country-house security, guinea fowl are the new birds on the block

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT GUINEA FOWL

Always faithful, without question • Rory Knight Bruce explores the relationship between artists, poets, writers and their beloved canine companions

THE HACKNEY STAND

Country queries
