It was truly an international lineup with Guns from the US, Jordan, Russia, Greece, Germany and the UK. We also had 2 father and son teams sharing pegs which was great to see.

Fishing Hunting! A great sport for all.

Anyone who is still wondering why we here at British Country Sports refer to fly fishing as “fish hunting”, should find the answer in this new video by Alan Ward at Country Field Images.

Fly fishing is available nearly all year round in the UK with brown and rainbow trout, atlantic salmon and sea trout available during the summer months and grayling during the winter.

Check our sporting calendar for local seasonal dates.

Fly fishing bookings for individuals up to groups of 20 anglers can be organised with our professional guides/instructors covering the length and breadth of the UK.

ADIHEX 2017 Summary

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Well another ADIHEX (Abu Dhabi International Hunting and Equestrian Exhibition) has come and gone. ADIHEX is the largest hunting exhibition held in the Middle East each year.

Numbers appeared to be down this year for both longer term, big ticket exhibitors and visitors to the exhibition. This can be explained by the recent downturn in the GCC economy and other geo-political issues currently effecting the region.

Nevertheless those who did exhibit and attend all seemed to be pleased that they did so.

As well as a comprehensive firearms section, there was a wide variety of outdoor and marine equipment on offer, falcons and Arabian horses for sale as well as numerous UAE cultural displays.
