If you have ever had the good fortune to meet this issue’s guest editor Tiggy Pettifer, you will never forget the encounter. In charge of fundraising and events for the Atlantic Salmon Trust, her infectious personality and boundless enthusiasm for saving wild salmon makes her a force to be reckoned with.

Based in Powys, we interview the Mad Welsh Woman at home on the Usk. You won’t be surprised to read that Tiggy’s issue has a distinct salmon leaning, but there is plenty of non-fishy content too - we visit a top notch driven shoot in North Yorkshire, we reveal the winners of the Eat Game Awards, and we report on the remarkable syndicate shoot at Ragley Hall in Warwickshire which has opened up its books to new members for the first time in 100 years. We have also teamed up with Schöffel Country to celebrate their 30th anniversary by giving away gear from their newly expanded fly fishing range.

There’s also interviews with two fanatical fishermen – comedian Paul Whitehouse and actor Jim Murray – who are both on a mission to raise awareness of the trouble our rivers are in.
