River Monsters Face-to-face

River Monsters Face-to-face

Archant

Man-sized ‘piranhas’, fish that electrocute and nine-foot river sharks are all in a day’s work for biologist and “extreme angler” Jeremy Wade.

Now the Amazon angling daredevil and star of River Monsters is coming to the Broxbourne Civic Hall, a stone’s throw away from the slightly more tranquil New River, in Hoddesdon.

Join the presenter of the global hit series, biology teacher and angler turned seat-of-the-pants explorer Jeremy Wade, for an evening of mystery, mayhem and monster wrangling at his River Monsters Face-to-face event on March 14.

Wade’s antics are the stuff of legend as a cult following has seen him bring CSI-like methods to solving the watery demise of unfortunate victims in the part angling show, part whodunit.

He has tangled with massive bull sharks, fearsome goliath tiger fish and the dreaded pacu, or ballcutter as it is known for its nasty habit of attacking men’s nether-regions. The event also promises to be “a rare chance to put your own questions to Jeremy”.
