* Jeremy has survived life endangering situations countless times, such as a plane crash, nearly getting struck by lightning (it was actually his sound man who got struck a few feet away), numerous close calls with Nile crocodiles, and at least two bouts of malaria.
** He once got his chest rammed by a giant Arapaima, an injury that still caused him great pain ''six weeks'' after the incident. Only a few days later, he went on to catch an even bigger one.
** He fished in the Pripyat River near Chernobyl. Then he fished in the plant's cooling pond. Then he fished AT THE MOUTH OF THE CHANNEL FEEDING REACTOR NUMBER 4.

* When searching for an oarfish, he had to dive in water over a mile deep and was visibly unnerved by it, coming close to a panic attack. Despite this, he went back down at night. And was rewarded by seeing not one, but two oarfish in the wild.

* Jeremy hunting for the Muskellunge: After fishing for several weeks using gear meant for large fish and not catching anything, Jeremy decides to take a break to catch small fish to get his confidence back. He accidentally catches the exact fish he was looking for--while using normal fishing gear (that would normally break with the a fish the size of the Muskellunge), in an area the fish is not meant to be, and almost immediately after throwing tobacco into the lake as an offering to the "lake spirit," in imitation of a story that brought him to the area he was in.

Electric eels that can ''fatally electrocute horses, and '''[[NeverSmileAtACrocodile caiman!]]'''''caiman!]]''''' Prior to the actual fishing, the Matis go through a ritualized preparation in which the village shaman makes small burns on their arms with hot coals, then mixes the blistered skin with a tiny amount of frog venom, possibly creating a reaction with their nervous systems that makes them less susceptible to the eels' shocks.
