The Founder of the Coastal Survival School, Fraser is a fully Qualified Charter Skipper, MCA Commercial Endorsed Skipper. Included in these qualifications are RYA Sea Survival, VHF Radio operator, Navigation and First Aid at Sea.
Fraser was first teaching survival and bushcraft skills to his local scout group over 25 years ago and has since been lucky enough to fish, hunt and forage professionally. He has had some amazing experiences and mentors in his life and is pleased to share his valuable lessons and knowledge with many others. He is also a fully qualified chef and nutritionist with a passion for wild herbal medicines, wild food and outdoor cooking skills including preserving and smoking foods. This has helped him gain an instinctive understanding and respect of both nature and the elements, his past also seen him lead and instruct the popular River Cottage – Catch and Cook, and Fish Skills courses, published in many magazines, and to write his new books – Eat The Beach and Coast Hunter.
Recently Fraser has immersed himself in the philosophy of “practice what you preach” and now lives completely off grid spread between the coast and a remote wild woodland, actually living the life that others teach.
