Adventures Along the Sporting Road with Fast Horses, Paper Hulls and Silk Lines

Most of our time along the Sporting Road is spent together with family and friends.  But, when my wife opts to stay at home and then asks, “When will you be home?,” from my travels along the Sporting Road, I reply, “I am out here working to put food on the table and you are giving me a hard time about when I’ll be home?”   She laughs and turns a blind eye.

Or, when our daughter expresses that it’s time to leave the stream, maybe as darkness approaches, my wife always has a similar reply, “Ok, let’s just catch one more fish.”  And, our daughter willfully obliges a few more casts.

Our horses neigh when the hunt is called, but the leap onto the trailer and the ones that are left behind always whinny.  And all our travels afar always seem to end too soon.

But no one ever complains about the time spent in our French kitchen to the smells of these delights in the pan.  Nor does anyone think of leaving the dining room table before the seventh course.  For all of this is some of the best time, time spent enjoying the spoils of our adventures.

After writing a couple of  cookbooks for our family and friends, featuring game and cuisine from our travels, we decided to take our adventures and recipes online, of both our time spent in the field and the kitchen.

We hope that you will travel with us, through an invisible veil, into our world of the staunchest pointing dogs, fat trout always eager to take the fly, all the foxes you care to chase and good horses to follow them upon, and a bird in the oven and then some, on this Sporting Road from our adventures, whatever they may be, including:

Fly Fishing

If you have never wet a silk line or fished a nymph in icy cold waters, these pages should teach you how and give you glimpse of what is like to “have a fish on fly fishing.”


Foxhunting revolves around the chase foxhunting of the quarry in pursuit of a pack of English Foxhounds.  There is no finer diversion in life.
