Now retired from the British Armed Forces after finishing his career working for the Ministry of Defence, Robert Emmerton plans to spend the golden years of his sunset doing what he’s always wanted to do: fishing and writing about fishing. Emmerton took an army role allowing him to travel the world and fish in more places than most people and he has planned out his retirement to enable him to revisit the highlights without having to work during the week. He has been working on a book of great spots for ocean fishing and yarns which he will write and publish with the help of his son, author, James Emmerton.
