After an absence of 12 years, the CLA Game Fair returned to Yorkshire this year for a glorious few days celebrating the great British countryside. And in true British style, the wet weather couldn't possibly dampen the spirits of the 131,250 visitors!

We were proud to join other great brands including Hull Cartridge Company, Dr Watson Shooting and Foxdenton Estate Gin as part of Peg 5's 'Best of British' shooting collection.

A great time was had by all, with the field drinks party on the Friday night enjoyed by many, including representatives from Shooting Times & Country magazine and the Shooting Gazette. We're already looking forward to next year's CLA Game Fair held at Ragley Hall, Warwickshire, 29th - 31st July 2016. See you there?
