The Dorset MacNab

​This all started as a bit of pub banter last game season between myself and two shooting mates. Clearly based on the South Coast, a true MacNab (grouse, salmon and stag) isn't an option, but we got talking to what we could achieve!

The best equivalent was a brace of partridge, a brown trout or sea bass and a roe buck. However we wanted to make this an annual event, all three of us lead hectic busy lives and we live in 3 neighbouring counties.... So as our first attempt this year we have set our sights a but lower.

A brace of rabbit, and brace of pigeon and a brace of bass, all in one day, sun rise to sunset! The date has slipped a few times, but is now set as Oct 2nd.

Really looking forward to it and ill post on here how it goes.

Anyone else tried anything similar?

The plan for the bass is to try for them off my boat out of Poole, very much weather dependant on where and how we fish for them.
