Monsters of River and Rock: My Life as Iron Maiden's Compulsive Angler (Hardback)Adrian Smith (author)
- In stock
A globetrotting tour of angling’s best hotspots with the legendary guitarist of Iron Maiden throws up some tremendous anecdotes and jaw-dropping stories.
Legendary Iron Maiden guitarist takes you to the final frontier of fishing.
Welcome to the world of Adrian Smith, playing his Jackson guitar onstage to millions - while behind the scenes he explores far-flung rivers, seas and lakes, waterways and weirs, in a fearless quest for fishing nirvana.
Hooked on the angling adrenaline rush since first catching perch from East London canals on outings with his father, Adrian grew up to be in one of Rock's most iconic bands. On tour, his gear went with him. The fish got bigger. The adventures more extreme.
In Monsters of River and Rock you'll hear about his first sturgeon: a whopping 100-pounder from the roaring rapids of Canada's Fraser River that nearly wiped him out mid-Maiden tour. Then there's the close shave with a shark off the Virgin Islands whilst wading waist-deep for bonefish. Not to mention an enviable list of specimen coarse fish from the UK.
Come to the riverbank with Adrian and cast a line on the wild side.
