ADRIAN LATIMER

Adrian Latimer left university in 1982 not knowing what to do and ended up in insurance broking. He moved to Paris in 1991 and became risk manager for a major multinational in the energy industry.  But his passion has always been fishing, since his uncle first taught him how to cast a little Mepps spinner on the lawn as a kid.  Business takes him all over the world, and sometimes with a rod in the luggage too.  Having fished in Iceland, Montana, Argentina, the Caribbean, Russia and lots of Europe, and written short articles for commercial fishing magazines, he started to write stories purely for his own pleasure in the 1990s.  At that stage, friend and real author Bruce Sandison commented that he was in fact writing a book, and the idea took form.

Wishing to do something for conservation, Adrian decided to write the book for the North Atlantic Salmon Fund and has worked with Orri Vigfusson ever since (he is a director of NASF France).  Three books were self-published, have raised over  Euros 21,000 and are now sold out.  Adrian has published two books with Medlar - River at the End of the World and Fire & Ice and all his royalties are donated to NASF and the Wild Trout Trust.

His new 2015 title is Searching for a Rise - Fishing in the Shadow of Great Anglers.

Adrian lives outside Paris with his wife, daughter and two step children.
