-- Fur Feather and Fin are very honoured to announce they have become the new sponsor for the Anglesey Gundog International. This gundog field trials competition, held in Anglesey Wales every year, was first started over 25 years ago. The location and terrain, complete with a lake that was added, makes for an ideal spot and has become a favourite for many gundog handlers that have had the opportunity to compete here.
However, despite its' popularity and picturesque location, the competition almost didn't even happen this year. When the sponsor pulled out at the last minute, it looked like the only option was to cancel the competition for this year. Thankfully, there weren't any disappointed gundogs as Fur Feather & Fin stepped-in to take over sponsorship of the event.
When asked about this year's competition, the captain of the England team, Nathan Laffy, said "Without Fur Feather & Fin's sponsorship and support there wouldn't be any gundog trials here this year, they really came in and saved the day for the competition and all its participants."
Teaming up with Fur Feather & Fin has been so well-received, the event organisers have announced they will now be calling it the 'Fur Feather & Fin Gundog International' going forward. This year, the competition hosted teams from Italy, England, Ireland, Sweden and Wales. Next year will also see Germany and Switzerland join the collection as the show's popularity spreads internationally.
Fur Feather and Fin was established over 40 years ago, in 1978, and has grown into a leading UK supplier of quintessential country apparel, accessories and luxury leather shooting goods as well as luggage. This year Fur Feather & Fin team up with renowned gundog trainer, Jason Mayhew, and launched a new dog catalogue which expanded the products offered for gundog training.
