Jeremy Wade, Monsters of the River and his love for fishing
The artists of the middle are always recognized by some particular characteristic that differentiates them from the rest. The spontaneity, the controversy or the crazy life, that revolves around them. In the case of Jeremy Wade the love of fishing and marine creatures.
Wade was born on March 23, 1956, in Suffolk, England. Known for his adventures at sea, he has traveled all over the world embarking on new finds and weighing projects, especially in South America.
As a great passion for aquatic animals, Jeremy Wade is the host of the River Monster Program. His interest in working in the media was driven by his obvious fanaticism for fish and other marine creatures, as well as, of course, his profession; behind the presenter is a zoologist with a postgraduate degree in Biological Sciences.
In an interview, this British presenter said he did not remember what kind of fish he had caught the first time he went fishing, but, at the same time, he said he perfectly remembered not wanting to touch the animal because of its slimy, slippery surface. Like a good lover of the sea, one of his favorite books is “The Man and the Sea” by Ernest Hemingway, in his early days as a presenter of River Monster, he was able to catch a 161-pound catfish in an Indian community.
For this prodigy, it seems that life revolves around its animals, discoveries, and adventures; He even stated that he was eternally married to his profession and at 62 years of age he has no wife or children. People in the media have even come to ensure that Wade is gay. However, he keeps a low profile and refuses to answer questions from journalists.
Being a television program worker with a career that exceeds 25 years, it is logical that Jeremy Wade has accumulated a heritage over time. In fact, his capital amounts to 2 million dollars, including the profits of the book he published in 2011; stories of his life and more challenging adventures.
On one occasion, Wade came to confess that swimming with eels was one of the riskiest things he did. However, at his age, he is still bringing entertainment to English screens with the program for which he is recognized nationally and internationally.
