Giles Catchpole, one of the most popular and amusing contributors to the Shooting Gazette, together with the renowned and brilliant cartoonist Bryn Parry, have loaded up another game bag's worth of sharply written and wittily observed shooting types and unleashed them onto an expectant readership through The Second Barrel, a sequel to Shooting Types. Their characters appear in a monthly column in the Shooting Gazette; in which Catchpole wickedly and brilliantly observes the eccentricities of the sportsmen,dogs, beaters, hosts and supporting characters all of which are superbly illustrated by Bryn Parry's perceptive and humorous cartoons. Every Shot or shooting enthusiast will recognise many of the characters in this book. An ideal gift which will without doubt become an essential addition to every country sportsman's bookshelf.
Giles Catchpole shoots regularly with those kind of friends whom he has not so far completely alienated by including them in this, or any other, sporting books: Birds, Boots & Barrels; Shooting Types; and What a Chap Really Wants in Bed.Bryn Parry is one of Britain's best-known countryside cartoonists, with many of his cartoons appearing in country magazines. He has illustrated countless products with his witty and perceptive pictures, including his own previous best-sellers: Dog Training with Mr Perks, Mad Dogs and Englishmen, Sex in the Country, Shooting Types, Shooting Top Tips and 101 Shooting Excuses.
