Jeremy Wade Bio, Wiki

Jeremy Wade was born to a Vicar father in Ipswich in Suffolk, on 23 March 1956. He has one brother – Martin Wade.

Jeremy Wade attended high school at Dean Close School, from which he attended – and graduated – from Bristol University with a degree in Zoology. He went on to the University of Kent, from which he secured a postgraduate teaching certificate in biological sciences.

His first job was as a secondary school biology teacher in Kent, before he went on to build a flourishing career on TV. Though he has traveled the world on account of his job and interest in fishing, not all of his journeys around the world had been because of fishing, as he has been detained as a suspected spy several times in his life. He has also caught malaria, from which he very nearly died, as well as being threatened at gunpoint. Wade has even survived a plane crash.

Fluent in several languages, including Portuguese, French, and Spanish, Wade began fishing at a very early age. He grew up in East Anglia, on the banks of Suffolk’s River Stour. This hobby would go on to become his lifelong passion.

Hear him:

“The village where I grew up had a river flowing through it. So it was inevitable, I think, that I should be drawn to it-in the same way that people born in sight of Alpine peaks become climbers. My first attempts to catch fish, age 7 or 8, were unsuccessful, but then I had some guidance from a school friend and after my first catch, I never looked back. My parents were happy for me to stay out all day and a big part of my fishing was wanting to find new places, a process that has continued to this day.”

Soon, Jeremy Wade started traveling the world, searching for different species of fishes and water creatures available throughout the world. He made this his lifelong obsession, making his first oversea trip in 1982 when he went to the mountain river in India. He would always remember that trip as a struggle for him at the time.

“I took just £200 to last me three months but I managed to catch some fish such as Himalayan mahseer up to 18 pounds”

When he got back home to England, Jeremy Wade journaled about his experiences in India and the things he learned from the different species he had encountered in the rivers down there and sent the articles to a fishing magazine. The write-up was accepted almost immediately, and this led him to consider his next oversea travel. He had found his life’s work.

Wade’s job has taken him on many trips to the Congo and the Amazon rain forests in search of the world’s rarest species of sea creatures. In 1992 he published his first book, Somewhere Down the Crazy River. He has also written River Monster, a book about his journeys around the world. It was on a subsequent trip to India in 2005, according to Wade, the idea for River Monster show first came to him.

Jeremy Wade covered the Lampreys in the River Monster episode of Vampires of the Deep, and in 2014, he made his acting debut, appearing in Blood Lake: Attack of the Killer Lampreys, a movie in which he acted the role of Lamprey expert.

In the year 2014, Wade made his acting debut appearing the movie Blood Lake: Attack of the Killer Lampreys in the role of Lamprey expert.
