It's back in print - Confessions of a Shooting Fishing Man

Back by popular demand in paperback: Confessions of a Shooting Fishing Man

Throughout 1995, Laurence's diary records his hopes of buying some precipitous shooting ground in the Pennines, his fishing days on the Eden, Wharfe and other rivers, the arrival of a second gundog and days spent together on shoots.

He looks at foxhunting, vegetarianism, man as a hunter, man as created in God's image and man as a creature doomed, himself, to die.
