Feargal Sharkey is a lifelong fly fisherman, and now campaigns to preserve chalk streams. He appeared with Paul and Bob on Gone Fishing last week. Adrian Smith of Iron Maiden has just published a biography called Monsters Of Rivers And Rock, which is full of his fishing and musical exploits. I believe that Keith Flint from the Prodigy fished a bit too. I once met Gazza when I was fishing. A nice bloke but he seemed to be full of nervous energy. Mind you, he was in the middle of rehab at the time. He sat and chatted to me for about an hour.

Saw that the other day and it reminded me that he was on the big fish off a few years ago. He must have forgotten he’d done it or just taken a couple years to get into it!

Saw an article in the Angling Times that mentioned it is how I found out.
