Adrian Smith

I was interested to discover that one of Adrian's "adventures" took place on the Trent at Collingham. That's very close to home for me - one of my friends used to live at Collingham in the mid-90's and I used to ride over from Gainsborough on my moped to see her, sometimes stay overnight and go to discos together. The approach to the Trent at Collingham is opposite the end of the road where she used to live.

On a more sombre note, after I read this chapter I went looking for more info on the fishing there and found this:

Another interview with H:

At the bottom of this article are three search buttons "Adrian Smith", "Angling" and "Iron Maiden". Out of curiosity I tried clicking on "Angling" and guess what? It turns up no results except this one :lol:

That northern lass description may not be the most charitable or PC, but it made me laugh when reading the book. Probably more so because it was so unexpected in a description of a car crash :lol:

And yet it's a sobering thought because although it seems funny put like that, if it hadn't been for that tree it might have been a case of no more Adrian ... :confused:

I read some sections of this book to my sister yesterday. She says he should have called it "Fishing Isn't Boring" :D
