• Top TV angler John Wilson quits UK for Thailand

    by  • April 9, 2013 • Uncategorized • 45 Comments

    John Wilson, who played a pivotal role in reviving European angling in the 1980s through his Go Fishing television programmes, is leaving England and moving to Thailand. He has put his stunning Norfolk lakeside property up for sale and will move to Thailand later this year. “We’ve had enough of the cold weather,” John said. “I don’t want to die an angry old man moaning about otters and cormorants, so I’m moving to Thailand. I’ve lost interest in fishing here.” He has bought a  a six-acre site with a three-acre lake, and has already ordered what he describes as “big, hard-fighting fish like arapaima and catfish” for the lake. A key factor is that his wife Jo has arthritis and the extended run of bitterly cold UK weather has exacerbated that condition. He expects to moving in October or November, subject to the sale of his house. John’s Go Fishing television programmes have played a core role in encouraging thousands to take up fishing. He was voted The Greatest Angler of all Time in a 2004 poll by readers in Angling Times, and more recently was named as one of the ten most influential anglers of the past 160 years by The Field magazine. He was awarded an MBE in 2009 for services to angling, and was elected to the International Game Fish Association’s Hall of Fame in 2010.

    Editor and publisher of Classic Angling magazine. Founder member of UK Angling Writers' Association and current chairman. Former winner of Writer of the Year. I wrote a weekly angling column for The Independent for 23 years, having previously written columns for The Guardian and Sunday Mirror. If it swims, I'll fish for it: marlin or mackerel, trout or tench, salmon or snook. I've written several books on fishing, from one for the Duke of Edinburgh's award to the notorious Catchmore Sharks (don't look at the pictures) and Bob Nudd's autobiography, How to be the World's Best Fisherman. I love exotic travel for fishing (been to Mongolia and Ecuador, the Great Barrier Reef and Arunachal Pradesh) and wish I could afford to do such trips more often. My favourite fish? Anything with fins, though I have a special love for mahseer, and I'm chairman of The Mahseer Trust.
