He acquired a taste for success when he won a national poetry competition sponsored by the Daily Mail at the age of 16 and the prize paid for his first foreign holiday. Ten years later he was still writing poetry, for a 25p magazine, the Little Word Machine. He admitted then that he had always written prolifically but rarely attempted publication. When he wrote two novels in his 20s they went into a drawer and were not even shared with his family.

It was his experience in the oil and gas industry in the s, coupled with an acute understanding of the insanity of much government bureaucracy, that inspired Salmon Fishing in the Yemen.

He particularly enjoyed the fact that Yemeni tourist organisations were later often asked for details of their fishing holidays.

His father had emigrated from Hungary with his parents in the late s and the family settled in the north-east as government grants were available for business set-ups.

Laszlo was a physicist and his father a scientist and they founded an electroplating business that would develop into marine engineering. Paul went to the Royal grammar school, Newcastle , which he did not enjoy, but his years there won him a scholarship to study English at Pembroke College, Oxford.

He seemed a quiet and placid man, exuding the air of the English country gentleman, but it was the very fact that he was not English that fuelled his enthusiasm for the lifestyle. He enjoyed the good things in life, food and wine and salmon fishing. He liked shooting and walking and climbing and living in comfort, preferably with dogs as part of the family. He was also phenomenally well read, played Mozart on the piano and when his children were little would draw them charming cartoons.

In he married Jane Mortimer, and they had two sons, Piers and Nicholas. They separated in and in he married Penelope nee Taylor , with whom he lived at the Jacobean Chipchase Castle in Northumberland, an estate she had inherited and which he did much to help manage.
