Now its the time of year when the Salmon fishing has well and truly stopped I am drawn to dipping in and out of various interesting old Game Fishing books. This maybe alright in the short term but its no substitute for getting out there- Now is the time to go shooting!
Thankfully, I'm lucky enough to have some good shooting available. Most of my shooting escapades revolve around getting up stupidly early or going out at dusk and standing around on the marsh waiting for some un-suspecting Ducks to fly within range.
If we shoot something its a bonus, and cause for celebration (roast duck dinner and a beer).
In summary, its not so different from Salmon fishing!
