Chaps, I have had a lovely email today from Marylin Smith the Daughter of Arthur Smith, she has asked me to pass this message on to you.

I am not really a fisher woman, although was, as a child. I just wanted to reply to the people who were talking about my Father, Arthur Smith, who had a fishing tackle shop in Magdalen Road, Oxford. If you can reply on my behalf, dad died age 94 11 years ago, and Aubrey, my brother who they also mention is still a keen fisherman at 82
