In this sequel to Shooting Types, Catchpole once again brilliantly observes the eccentricities of sportsmen, dogs, beaters, hosts and supporting characters, all of which are superbly illustrated by Bryn Parry’s perceptive and wickedly humorous cartoons.
A brilliant book… a must-have for anyone interested in the sport.
Gun Trade News
This book shows the brilliant observations of the eccentricities of the sportsmen, dogs, beaters and hosts. Every shooting enthusiast will recognise many of the characters in this book, all illustrated with Bryn Parry’s perceptive and humorous cartoons.
When genius meets genius the outcome is perfection. And the two men behind this book fall into that category, as regular Shooting Gazette readers will be well aware. Giles Catchpole has a unique understanding of the different characters involved in shooting, and with his mischievous sense of humour and understanding of the language, his words give pleasure enough in themselves. However, when united with Bryn Parry’s simply superb cartoons, the combination is unstoppable… Every shooting household should have a copy of this book; it is pure fun, and you might just recognise yourself and your friends in some of the stereotypes.
