The television star, once voted the greatest angler of all time, moved Thailand with his wife Jo in 2013.
The Go Fishing presenter died at his home in Thailand, aged 75, on November 13 last year. He and his wife had previously lived at Lake House, Great Witchingham, near Norwich, which had a two acre lake he created and where he fished at his local River Wensum.
Such was his devotion to fishing in the county that he had a fishing tackle shop, the Tackle Den, in Bridewell Alley, Norwich, in 1971 and wrote the book Where to Fish in Norfolk and Suffolk.
