The Field

Thrilling grouse;

I would sell my soul for a day’s driven grouse – Sir Max Hastings’ love affair with the moors;

Gundogs born to flower over the heather – pointers and setters, poetry in motion;

Dark nights with fishing’s peaky blinders – the violent thrill of fighting sea-trout;

Racing gold – digging in for victory;

Foxy ladies – in pursuit of a husband on the hunting field;

The bleep test – finding a fortune in the fallow;

and much, much more…
