Seeing as no one can get out at moment, thought I'd start a thread. It will make interesting reading on these cold fishless nights.
Some years ago now whilst fishing a water called Rooksbury I had had a few fish
. I was the only one on the lake at the time. The lake in question is totally surrounded by trees. There is only one entrance in and out unless you want to get wet.
It was 1st light and I was sat drinking my 1st brew of the day when I saw someone walking around the far side of the lake. I didnt really think about it much ,other than I hadnt heard him pass me. I was on the 1st swim as you entered, so anyone coming in had to pass me. I watched him in the far corner walking behind a tree to the next swim but he never came out the other side. thought it was strange but again didnt give much thought to it.
Later that morning one of the lococals I know popped down. He asked if anyone else was down. I told him I didnt think so and about the guy I had seen earlier but hadnt passed me on way in or out. He started laughing and informed me I'd probably seen old derek, a guy tyhat died of a heart attack whilst fishing that swim I'd seen him in. Apparently a few people have seen him.
Things like this dont scare me because the dead cant hurt you.....its the live ones you got to watch!!!
