Jeremy Wade(s) through Asian rivers in search of monsters

Renowned biologist to share his encounters with freshwater beasts in Asia during his River Monsters Live In Asia stop in Malaysia.

If you think crocodiles and alligators are the only predators you need to worry about the next time you take a quick dip in a river ... you have obviously not watched Discovery Channel’s River Monsters series.

Eager to take you on a spine-chilling monster fishing adventure – all from the safety and comfort of your living room – is renowned angling guru and biologist Jeremy Wade who is back on air with River Monsters 6.

“I’ve been fishing the world for decades, but it’s the Amazon that keeps calling me back,” said Wade. “Now, I’m returning to solve the mission of a lifetime to spend an entire year going farther, deeper and more remote than I’ve ever been before.”

Just in case you didn’t know, the amount of water flowing through the Amazon river in South America is greater than the flow of rivers Ganges (India), Congo (Africa), Mississippi (United States), Nile (Egypt) and Yangtze (China) – combined. Yikes!

Well, that explains why the concentration of fish species there is 10,000 times of that in the ocean, and this includes some very real “river monsters”.

And guess what? You can be one of first people to hear Wade talk about his experience as he stops by Malaysia for his River Monsters Live In Asia tour. Yes, Wade will be at Sunway Pyramid in Bandar Sunway, Selangor on May 24 to share stories about his adventures from the new season, his encounters with freshwater beasts in Asia, tips on how to catch a monster fish (yay!) and of course, to meet fans.

There is also a special photo exhibition featuring some of Wade’s most epic River Monsters moment at Sunway Pyramid from May 23 to 25.

Wade will also be in Jakarta, Indonesia on May 22 and Singapore on May 25. For details go to discoverychannelasia.com or facebook.com/DiscoverySEAsia. Catch the action on social media via the #RiverMonstersAsia hashtag.

River Monster 6 premieres on July 8 (Tuesday) at 10pm on Discovery Channel (Astro Ch 551).
