Jeremy Wade Career

Wade was interested in fishing; he started as a child when he was living in East Anglia, on the banks of Suffolk’s River Stour. (The village where he was raised had a river flowing through it. So it became inevitable, he think, that he should be drawn to it in the same way that people born in sight of Alpine peaks. His first attempts to catch fish, age 7 or 8 years, were unsuccessful. However, he had some guidance from a school friend and after his first catch he never looked back. His parents were happy for him to stay out all day and a big part of his fishing was wanting to find new places, a process that has continued to this day).

Later in 1982, Wade made his first overseas trip, to India’s mountain rivers. In addition to recalling this journey, he stated that trip became very hard going. Upon his return to England, he wrote a couple of articles about his experiences in India for a fishing magazine. “In spite of the discomfort of travelling at such a basic level, there was a real feeling of achievement and he immediately began saving money to go somewhere else. Furthermore, he was not sure where at that point but he knew there must be other exotic fish out there. Although probably not as well documented as Mahseer, but possibly even more spectacular.”


Moreover in 2016, while filming on a remote island near Australia. Wade and his crew stumbled upon a man who was stranded on the island after losing his boat while digging for oysters. Furthermore, the man, identified as Tremaine, had been stranded on the island for two days prior to Wade and his crew found him. Additionally, in 2018, Wade became recruited to host the Animal Planet documentary series Mighty Rivers. Which he investigates the disappearance of freshwater giants from the world’s most iconic rivers.

Wade would move on to the Animal Planet documentary series Dark Waters, which explored unexplained sightings of mythical beasts across the world in 2019. Additionally in 2020, he started a new TV series, Mysteries of the Deep, where he explores underwater mysteries, ranging from the Loch Ness Monster to the Bermuda Triangle.
