    New Member Introduction

    Hello Everyone,

    I have just joined the Directory, so here's a little information about myself.

    I am a keen shotgun shooter (small driven pheasant syndicate and some rough shooting) I also beat on a local commercial shoot and help out with rearing birds when I can. I enjoy fly fishing on my local river (the Dove)

    I have just passed my DSC 1 but other than that I have no experience of deer and stalking. I have not applied for my firearms certificate and don't plan on doing so until I have learnt quite a bit more.

    I hope to learn from all of you and I apologise in advance for the many daft and naive questions that I fear I am likely to ask.

    I live between Burton on Trent and Lichfield in Staffordshire, England, which is quite close to the Needwood Forest. I have spotted quite a few Muntjac deer in the area and some Roe, but I have a lot to learn before I can stalk them on my own.

    I look forward to learning from you all and thank you in advance for your help.

    I fish on the stretch between Doveridge and Sudbury. It is a mixed course and game, but fishes pretty well on the fly.

    I have never seen reds in my neck of the woods but I am still getting into the hang of spotting them. I'll keep on the lookout for them.
