Not a supernatural story but very scary.
My young son and I were fishing a small lake fenced off from a large private estate and screened by a row of poplar trees. Shortly after dusk we heard a volley of gunshots behind the poplars; some one hundred feet away. All the anglers fled to the car park and we were wondering if it was safe to sneak back to retrieve kit. Shortly afterwards the proprietor drove up and explained that a well refreshed shooting party had become lost on the estate and not realising that the poplars were a boundary, shot at some deer. Lucky they were good shots and hit the animals not the anglers.

I have fished mostly solo for well over 50 years often at times being the only one on the lake both here and in France and I its never bothered me in fact I go so far as to say I prefer it
and I totally dont believe in ghosts its all peoples imagination
hand on heart I have only ever been scared once that was at a French lake in the middle of nowhere
(bastd place to find ) there was a large forest up to the lakes edge on the bank I was fishing
only person on the lake was me it was around 02.30 I had not long had a fish and was just starting to drop off when I heard a commotion behind me branches snapping my 1st thought was it was maybe a cow pushing thru ? so jumped out of bed grabbed my machetti just to be on the safe side and turned on my head light to see and scare off whatever it was ?
by now from the noises it was clear it was a largish animal suddenly I got a glimpse it was a large Boar I had heard these things are not to be messed with as they can charge you and break a leg at this point probably for the first time I was proper heart thumping scared
I grabbed my stove and picked up a load of deadwood and used it to get a fire going sat up all night outside hoping the poxy thing would bugger off
in the morning the farmer came round he could not speak much english but I managed to explain it was a hog he got very excited and I managed to understand he was going to shoot it that evening just as it was getting dark I heard gunfire
following day he came round grinning from ear to ear explaining in sign language he had got it then 2 days later I had just finished packing up and the old boy had watching me he then grabbed my arm and took me to his house the few hundred yards away where he tried to give me this bloody great big joint of the butchered hog !
but I declined his house was full of flies never seen so many he had these sticky fly strips hanging down and they were completely black with hundreds of bluebottles stuck to them
lol

My explanation:-
You or your mates had Curry the night before and there were some underpants that needed cleaning!
So, yeah, your gas explosion theory was correct.

Castle Leslie in Co Monaghan..Well known for its ghosts who haunt the place.
Very scary place to stay,and fishing into dark is spooky with a capital S.
Woke up one night while staying in the castle to loud bangs that seemed to echo all through the place,then next day being told it must have come from 'the crying room'.Apparently,there was a young boy murdered in his bed,and his ghost still wails every night.I needed a pi55 soon after and no way was I walking down a long hall to the toilet,so I used an antique chineese vase as a substitute

Not a spooky story but definitely an odd event that happened to me a couple of winters ago,

Me and three mates were fishing a water in the colne valley. Although it was winter it wasn’t stupidly cold so we were up and about around 11pm is. Suddenly there was a huge and I do mean huge bang. The kind that isn’t just deafeningly loud but that you also feel the shock wave from..

We all jumped up and my first thought was a plane crash as we are under the Heathrow night flight path. We scanned the surrounding hills but no sign of anything. We waited for the inevitable sirens, but nothing. No distant smoke etc.

Perhaps we thought it was a gas explosion in one of the houses that overlooks the valley, but nothing. We wondered if it was a sonic boom but I’ve heard those in France and you always here the jet noise afterwards and who flys supersonic over West London?

We turned on the radio at listened to the London news stations. Nothing. I checked Twitter. Nothing. For a week afterwards I read the local news websites but I never found a mention of it anywhere. It’s not like it’s the middle of nowhere. It’s a dirty great earth shaking boom at 11pm on a sat night inside the m25. Very strange and we never discovered what it was but it sure as hell was no firework.

I use to fish, a private estate lake near where I lived before moving into London. Which was a brilliant lake I use to be the only person fishing 90% of the time and I managed nearly every fish out of there twice. I use to live on the place it was brilliant. It was one well moon lit night with clear sky's. It was about 11.30pm when i was sat in my brolly, having a smoke. All of the sudden I see a reflection of a person on my side of the lake, go right above the reflection of my brolly I turn round and there was no one there but I still see the shadow walking along the side of the lake and i started shouting and got no reply. I was really what the f*** could that have been. Next thing I get a run and when i was playing the fish which turned out too be a 20 odd pound mirror I keep looking behind as i was scared as f***. But noone appeared.

There are some very spooky anglers out there. Take my advice, get a BIG dog. It's amazing how safe you feel with a Rottie by your side! And the advantage of course is that if some turd does attack you in the night, it's a free meal for the dog! Quids in!

He may just have been a wandering pervert!

I always check areas in case of possible "dogging" interference. Have seen and heard some things in my time, but believe me the sight of a drunken old bag in her undies at your bivvie door propositioning you at 2am in the morning is not something you readily forget! Avoid the "doggers" at all costs, still have nightmares to this day!

Couldn't find a smiley of someone chucking up.....................

me and my brother went on a local small pit in the middle of a country park for an overnighter,apart from the path around it its totally enclosed with trees and foliage and pitch black with no moon,hes 1 side,im the other float fishing with starlites,,i heard someone or something making its way through the trees behind me,its 1am now,i shouted out,whos that,hoping some animal would run away,it never,it was now about 6ft into the foliage behind me,my neck hair stood up,my brother walked round to see what i was shouting at,then peering through the bracken i saw someone pulling on a cigarette,the end light up,i shouted again,but this time i swore and told whoever to f... off,the cigarette lit again,i got my black widow catapult out,filled it with swan shot and fired it full belt at whoever was there,the screams were merciless,then the sound of running with the occasional thump of hitting trees as he went,i reckon it was a hospital job for him.

Part 2


The air was cold-too cold, even for that time of year and I really felt that somehow, things were not ‘right’, but cannot really explain how. There were no owls hooting, no bats about..not even any midges bothering to bite. The water looked black and oily and I was getting a bit concerned by the cattle in the field opposite. Normally, they would wander around peacefully, mostly quiet but tonight it was as if –well, it’s a bit difficult to describe. Stampeding around continually and bellowing their heads off. The bank opposite is quite steep; you can’t access the pool from there because of the rock face. On the skyline opposite there are-were-several trees which shaded the pool and I noticed several head of cattle lined up there trying to get down the bank-as if they were trying to get away from something. Yes, I know it sounds silly, but that is how it appeared then. Then, one either lost it’s footing, slipped , fell or jumped, scrabbling down the bank and falling in with a tremendous splash… time to go! A rapid reel-in, quick check that nothing was left behind, but found that the torch had failed; never mind, I knew every step of the way back and had just started off when several more of the cattle came tumbling down the bank, crashing into the water in panic. I just didn’t want to be there anymore and headed back downriver to the bridge at a quickening pace. O.K. it may sound a bit’windy’ but I felt a sense of relief to be back on the road away from that place. As quietly as possible (not easy) I trod the steps from the gate to the stable door, pushed it open and climbed up into the loft and switched on the light. The flood of stinging yellow light and stable air brought a sense of reality and comfort and, after a welcome coffee, decided to have a kip and try the old Rock Pool downstream at first light-often a very productive time.

……It was still pitch black outside. I cannot recall the time, or for how long I had dozed, but something caused me to be wide awake in an instant..I remember straining my ears for sounds, but heard nothing but the usual ghostly echoing sound of the river under the bridge and into the cold night air. Then..I heard it definitely, it was not imagination, there was someone outside, moving very slowly and carefully, but the gravel betraying them. The steps were slow but very deliberate.
I lay absolutely motionless on the bunk, felt for the light switch-praying it would not fail when needed..and waited. After several minutes-it seemed, one or two more footsteps ..and the heavy door downstairs juddered quietly..and opened.
Who was it..? What-who did they want..? Although over half a century ago now, I can never forget that moment. It was cold, cowardly fear as I heard-and felt the weight of a foot placed on the first rung of the steps. Then the second..third-and fourth. There was a distinct pause and then the top step and I knew then that someone..something, was standing in the loft area, on the other side of the wooden dividing door.
It would take three or four steps to cross to the partition and I freely admit to feeling nothing but fear, both hearing and feeling, three quiet steps on the wooden floor outside.. Only a door separated me from-I knew not what..

I have absolutely no notion of what time elapsed, just lay there hardly daring to breathe, remaining motionless on the bunk with a clammy hand on the light switch; a simple bicycle toggle switch and I prayed that the somewhat ‘dodgy’ connections would work..

You know how you feel when you’re winding yourself up to do something? I decided to go for it, make the quickest movement of my life by switching the light, going for the door and kicking it open..-all in one! Whatever was there I decided to confront it-or forever live in fear.
After several mental rehearsals..it was GO! Light on and go for the door! Kicking it open I was confronted with…

…Nothing. Absolutely nothing. I might well have imagined it, except that the stable door, which I had definitely closed behind me, was open and a cool draft of night air came up into the loft. It would have been quite impossible to descend the ladder and move quietly on the gravel outside; so, what had I experienced..?

I wasn’t dreaming, most certainly both heard and felt what I have just described and have been unable to make sense of it ever since, from that night to this. The only other factor was that when the light came on, the intense feeling of cold air just melted away and became just,-well, normal.
I went down and closed the door, bolting it behind me and sat on the bunk until daybreak, all thoughts of fishing forgotten.

Maybe I’ll go and fish that pool again one night.. ..maybe.

Part 1

This is an extract from a manuscript, yet to be published. It is something which occurred about 50 years ago and, considering the nature of this thread, may be of some interest to readers..


..Within the compass of our lives, there has probably been-or will be-a moment or occurrence which seems to fly in the face of all logic, has no rationale and defies every plausible explanation. Not necessarily malevolent, just something the human mind cannot nail down and move on from. Something remembered even decades later, because it was so extraordinary at the time.

This is the closest I have been to the surreal and unexplainable. Today, half a century later, I am no closer to the truth than then. Make of the following what you will…

A season or two had passed before I returned to the river and the place where I grew up; the new tenants were a large family, not unknown in the river valley.
Les Knight, the head of the household, was a farm labourer, very worthy of his hire, whose small but tough, wiry frame knew nothing but hard work and toil. He permanently wore a beret on the side of his head, perhaps a retainer from wartime service days, had incredibly kind eyes and gentle expression-and spoke the Queens’ English with quiet, utter perfection.
Mrs Knight was somewhat taller, very thin and dark-eyed, possessing a violent shock of once-black-but tinged with grey, thick wavy hair; entirely natural but nevertheless, somewhat intimidating to children with a fertile imagination! In fact, years before it was widely held amongst us that Mrs. Knight was a witch (quite untrue) and possessed many mystical powers. Her mere presence on the bus would command 100% respect mixed with fear and utter silence from all the schoolchildren, to the complete mystification of their parents! The Knight family were in fact, most kind people who always welcomed me into their home,-but such is the imagination of the young..

The house by the bridge was originally built in the late eighteenth or nineteenth century as a gamekeepers lodge for the estate, but now a tied cottage to one of the estate farms. Much later-I think 1901 or 1903, a small, four-square stable was added next to the house a few yards away, both buildings set inside the gate and adjacent to the road. A rough, dusty gravel path was outside.
The stable was largely used for storage, much as we had done, but Les had had a Lister diesel generator installed in the rearmost part, to supply the luxury of electric light to the house! The Lister was only cranked up and run during the evening time and depite the exhaust being muffled with an old milk churn outside, you could hear the rapid but steady ‘tonk-tonk-tonk-tonk’ for miles, both up-and down river!

Access to the front part of the stable was by means of a very heavily made oak door and huge iron latch. The door always stuck slightly in the frame and always groaned a bit of a judder when initially pushed open. It probably still does. Once inside and a yard-or two in front, was a most sturdily built, wooden step ladder of five rungs about two feet width, leading to the upper loft part where we once housed all kinds of fowl. Here, Les had divided the loft area with a crude partition of vertical wooden planks, with a door for access opposite the top of the trap entrance. On the other side of the divider door, on the right-hand side, was a small bunk bed and some rudimentary pieces of furniture, these appointments completed by an ancient Victorian framed print on the wall! Fixed to the wall was a modified cycle lamp, powered by a 12volt car battery and toggle switch. Simple but essentially, very effective.
Les knew that I liked to fly-fish the witching hours for sea trout and had made this simple refuge for when the fishing was hard going and I could come back for a rest. He was a thoughtful and very kind man who liked fishing. He often came down late in the evening to watch but never took up the sport himself. A fish passed in from time-to-time maintained good relations between us.


……….It was a Friday afternoon and the omens for fishing that night were good. Warm and cloudy weather prevailed and I wasted no time in getting all together after work and heading out for the moors and valley on the old motor-cycle. I used to park it by the generator, inside the gate so it was safe, not that there was any need to worry in those days.
I spent the early evening with the family who knew I would be on the river that night and Les made sure the battery was charged and the thermos filled.
However, the weather was disappointing, the cloud clearing and the air turned chilly. The pool-my favourite, where I caught my first sea trout, looked good and there were definitely fish in it.
As darkness fell I began to fish but nothing whatsoever was moving..not even a small trout

Read the post regarding Balcombe a couple of days back but didn't want to reply as I had a session planned last night. Nothing scary happened but fished just next to the outfall and got woken up about 12:00 by a group of lads on the dam. Never had any other trouble up there before though. Think it's the local spot for a 'smoke up'.

1st time.... I was doing an over night session with my uncle. We were fishing the bank that was on the right if facing the lake from the dam. I was standing in his swim one up from mine about 11pm pitch black when a powerful searchlight shine from the field. It got closer and closer and we could hear a vehicle approaching. I thought it may of been the nra and went back to my swim to wind in my 3rd rod. When I went back to my uncles swim he looked ill! He was shaking. He said a White escort van pulled up with the windows down. He looked inside but and saw someone wearing a balaclava. Then drove off. We were properly s**t scared. I begged my uncle to stay so we could carry on fishing but he was not having any of it. I went back to my swim which was pretty much only one way in to start packing up and as I approached it I saw a figure climbing into the brambles. We packed up so quick I ended up leaving behind my bucket of tiger nuts! Serious!

2nd time.... I convinced a mate from school to come fishing with me. We got down there after walking from the train station with a mountain of gear and decided to have a look for a decent swim dumping the kit at the dam wall. We got halfway round and laying in the path was an adult deer. When we got closer we noticed that on its side it had had a cross burnt onto into its side. My mate was freaked out to the max saying it was some devil worship thing. Again I just wanted to get on fishing. I got my own way but after two hours of my mate whining we packed up.

I did do a fair few sessions by myself after my uncle decided to jack it in and I couldn't convince anyone else to come night fishing. I always felt so freaked out but something kept drawing me back to the place.

Yea I know what you mean about getting a weird feeling for a place.
I used to fish a round little lake on gatwick airport many years ago surrounded by woods and an old barn then a massive airport carpark next to it, nothing scary at all but jesus the place used to have me on edge all night that place, something not right about that place.

I remember when my brother was about 13-14 he was going to do a night on a local lake which is in the middle of no where with just woods around it the track is about 3/4 of a mile from the nearest road but he was going to be fishing with his mate so my mum took him down there, while setting up his mate phoned and said he couldn't go but my brother told my mum he would be fine on his own, so my mum left him that afternoon and he was happy fishing, anyway about 8ish he starts hear strange noises from the woods behind him he put it down to the wild life and goes a sits in his bivvy after about an hour the noises of sticks snapping and other strange sounds are getting louder and louder like something was getting nearer so he zipped down the door on the bivvy got under the sleeping bag and phoned my mum up at this time it was about half 9 I remember answering the home phone to my brother sounding like he was sitting himself I gave the phone to my mum and he wanted picking up we went and got him and I remember that look on his face he packed his gear down the fastest I've ever seen anyone pack up before and we got out of there, although it was only probably animals making the noise he never fished another nite in that place and has only been back with me for a day session or two at most and not even I will do a night down there its just got a weird feeling about the place

I read on here earlier that someone mention Busbridge in Godalming. I remember fishing here years ago when about 14 or 15 and was told that if you got too close to the water then the nun would grab your ankles and pull you in. That used to freak us out big time.

Was told that she'd drowned herself after her love died in WWI. Have fished that corner overnight after hearing this only once. Never been back in getting on for 20 years. Terrifying place!

I heard a story about an incident that happened to a carper which I was told happened at Cutt Mill. Apparently some guy was fishing near the dam end and hooked into something heavy. In trying to free his line a stiff floated to the surface. Anyone ever heard of this?

Fished Broadlands way back and was bivvied on the far side with my bruv. During the night I heard whispering behind the bivvy and some weird cackling which frightened the **** out of me. Suddenly the bivvy shook with a loud wailing outside. Grabbing my trusty truncheon, I leapt out of the bivvy and whirled round shouting what the ****s going on. Suddenly these two drunken pratts screamed and shouted out they thought I was someone else and ran off, one tripping over on a guide rope as he went. In the morning I realised that in front of the bivvy was a small raised mound of a good 8 inches in height. I was obviously standing on this waving the truncheon over my head which means my silhouette would appear to have been something like 7 feet tall. Don't know who was more scared, them or me!

30 years ago it was a little paradise, natural crystal clear water with big Pike, Carp and Tench. Was surrounded by mature bushes until Dave Barratt, the owner, and his bailiff had the idea of opening it up and started to charge in line with Bury Hill Fisheries. Totally ruined it. Now owned by someone else who I believe has made some improvements, but haven't been back to see it myself.

Was told a story by my brother about one of his friends who fished a lake near a monastery some years ago (not sure if it's Furnace Lake near East Grinstead?). This guy (who I met once) seemed to be pretty level headed but by all accounts what happened to him on this occasion left him very badly shaken. Having waited to get into his chosen swim, he'd set up and said cheerio to his mate and settled down for the evening. As it got darker, slight mist started to cover the lake at which point he nodded off. Around 3am, he was awoken by what he described as a growl and sat bolt upright. Looking out across the lake, through the mist he could see a cloaked figure drifting across the lake towards him. Suddenly his rods began to violently bounce and jump about on the bank sticks. He was so terrified he ran back to his car and drove home. By all accounts he did return for his stuff a few days after but has never fished the venue since or fished nights.

Would be interested to know if anyone else has heard this story?

Personally, scariest thing that happened to me fishing was at an old brick pit some years ago. During the early hours when it was still pitch black, I could hear something creeping though the undergrowth getting nearer to where I was fishing in a dug out swim at the bottom of a slope. When I shouted to try and scare off whatever was making the noise, silence. My policy has always been the best defence is attack, or act like a nutter and show no fear! So I grabbed my torch and a large log and heart racing ran in ready to have a go. I stopped and shone the torch around and initially saw nothing, but then suddenly saw in the torchlight a body in camo lying in the undergrowth. Really shaken now I thought I’d heard someone dumping a body and thinking the murderers still nearby when this tit stood up and apologised for alarming me but they were TA on manoeuvres and were trying to get to the lake undetected for water. After some expletives on my part, I said what do you mean we and his mate stood up right behind me. How I didn’t **** myself I’ll never know, but after telling them to get their water and **** off sharpish, I spent the rest of the night wide awake, shaken and rather pissed off. Have never been back since! And to make it worse, not even a bleep!

My syndicate is secure,high fence all round and two locked gates to get in to the car park.i've quite often been the only one on there if I do a night mid week.
One night last year I woke up and something felt wrong,can't put my finger on it but I felt like I was in total blackness and felt really scared,suddenly the whole bivvy shook for a couple of seconds,like when it has been raining and you shake it to dry....the feeling lasted a few seconds and then passed and I honestly thought I must of imagined it.
A couple of weeks ago the mrs asked if I was going fishing that weekend and could she join me.she quite often fishes with me so it wasnt a problem.during the night I got woken by her calling out my name in a panic.i woke up and she looked absolutely terrified.she said she felt like someone was trying to pull her out of the back of the bivvy.
I went over and did Sunday night this weekend and woke during the night to the feeling that someone was standing outside the bivvy.there has been a bit of tackle theft in the area lately so i jumped out just in case but no-one was around.when I got home yesterday and told the mrs,we started searching to see what we could find out about the area.turns out that during the plague they used to bring the dead bodies from London up the river which is about half a mile away and bury them in the surrounding fields.....

I've not had any experiences as scary as some of these stories but...

I joined a new club lake last year and its days only, now I got in the habit of turning up just before light and making my way around the lake in the darkness. I have never felt totally comfortable there but never had any reason behind it.

One morning, around 5am, I was setting up my rod rests in the water (have to wade out to get past the reedbeds) and out of the mist I noticed an old man walking towards me on the high bank to my left. Now normally you can see someone coming from a good 300yds away but with the mist visiblity was a bit poor. Still this old man was only around 50yds away from me when I noticed him which I thought was strange. Im pretty sure he hadnt noticed me hidden away in the reeds but I was following him with my eyes when a tree blocked my view. He never came out the other side of that tree...

I was frozen thinking that the only explanation was he had turned on a right angle and walked out of view dead in line with the tree. after about a minute I got out and ran to the top of the high bank and looked around, I couldnt see anyone at all.

Now this place is frequented by dog walkers, ramblers, joggers, etc but at 5am I was surprised to see someone appearing and disappearing infront of me.

Havent bothered to read all the posts just skimmed a few pages of them, and must say I havent had any bother in nearly 40 years of night fishing. EXCEPT one night, when fishing a small syndicate lake back in '87 . I remember as it was just before the night of the big storm back then.
Anyway the water in question, (an old brick pit), is in a mature bit of forest, and like most such places doesnt get a lot of light at night even with a full moon. But its never bothered me, or it didnt till this one night, when I was awoken by something apparently pushing through the undergrowth behind my bivvy.
Since I had got full night vision by that time, (I do a lot of water watching on late Spring or Summer nights, to help with fish location), so I didnt turn on my torch, but rose and stood quietly with my back against the tree next to the bivvy and waited.

I didnt have to wait long before I relised that whatever it was was passing from my left across to my right, but I couldnt see a thing.
Just as I was about to turn on my torch and destroy my night vision something screamed, and I mean screamed! Then not 20 feet from me whatever it was crashed away deeper in to the forest leaving me shaking like a leaf.

This was my first aquaintance with a randy Vixen that was to turn up at the back of the lake quite regularly over the next few years, probably due to the proximity to a large area of Rabbit warren hidden in the brambles to the left of my swim.

Sorry its not more gripping lads, but I am sure that such screams are the origin of many a ghost story told by city folk in times past.

Not really a believer in paranormal sheeite as I've still yet to see any conclusive proof either for myself or with the myriad of technology available to people today.
Had a weird one last week though as was fishing Merringtons and during the night I felt like someone.was pulling my hand and it woke me with a startle whilst preparing to kick off and defend myself. As I sat up though I noticed that I had a bit of a dead hand so put it down to that, I woke up with a bit of a cold sweat as well so went back to sleep after I'd checked my gear and the bivvy door was up so thought it was just a bad dream coupled with a lack of circulation.
That was about 2.00am and about half hour later I heard my mate , in the next swim, shout "get the f#@# off me...he shouted this twice so I grabbed the negotiator 'baseball bat ' and ran to his peg.
He was sitting up in his bivvy whilst I scanned around with a head torch ready to leather someone and I asked him what was wrong.
He said that he felt like someone was grabbing his bag and pulling it over his head and he felt stuck in his bag. He also said he had a bad dream and we put it down to that, as his bivvy door was also done up.

I didnt have the heart to tell him my story as he looked shook up as it was. I did blag a brew off him though and went back to bed....I admit to sleeping with one eye open and the 'negotiator' tucked up with me
I told him the next day and we laughed about it and just put it down to sleeping poorly as it was lashing down with gusty winds and was difficult to sleep anyway.

I was fishing moor lane in stains with a mate and we wss fishing from the island(one way on and off). Anyway about 2am in the morning the farmer who lives 200 yards away started his bloody chainsaw up! We was the only ones fishing and the farmer was never happy with anglers around his land. We wasnt that bovered untill we noticed he wasnt cutting anything and it was 2 in the morning, then the sound come closer then stopped. About an hour later someone walked over the wooden bridge, me and my m8 went and had a look...no one there . So we armed ourselfs with a couple of bank sticks and stayed awake all night. It s..ts you up when your only 14

Ok here it goes! I was 14 at the time doing my first overnighter on my own. I wss fishing one of bath roads old waters in Shepperton, I might also add that my mum drppoed me off so I was staying the whole night regardless of what happened. Anyway I got set up etc and got in my sleeping bag about 11pm, about 20 minutes later I could here talking behind my bivvy, being the warrior I was I grabbed a little knife I had and investigated...no one was there. Got back inmy bag and about 45 minutes latr heard ig again , and again no one was there. Just to add there was no one else fishing the lake . Thought it was mh mind playing tricks so I went back to sleep. About 2 hours later a big branch feel off a tree about 100 yards away! Needless to say I didnt get much sleep.
Got 1 more story for the next post

I always used a carpenters mallet to bang in my bivvy pegs, and also to deter tackle thieves. Does give a certain feeling of security when you hear weird sounds around the bivvy in the middle of the night.

Sounds like I do the complete opposite to you lot. I actually want paranormal activity to happen whilst I am fishing my current syndicate (or any others for that matter) - we often ask for things will happen for us if we hear strange noises and sometimes just to see if we can get something to happen. Let me explain.

Around 12 years ago my other half got into watching "Most Haunted" on TV, she then deemed that she would love to go on a ghost hunt. I organised it for her and as she doesn't drive accompanied her. We ended up joining the team and go quite regularly to various supposedly haunted places. Before anyone asks no - not a lot happens that I don't think can be explained, although I do have more of a belief in that sort of thing now than when I first went. I/We have spent hours sat in various pitch black castles/prisons/stately homes all alone waiting for something to happen.

During the winter I take her to loads of these things and in the summer/spring she comes fishing with me - so it seems like a fair deal

Anyway Last year I joined a new syndicate - incidentally the old neo-gothic mansion on the estate is also reputedly very haunted and we have done 5 paranormal investigations there. A couple of the lads decided to give me the low down on the various rumours of monks and ghost dogs etc to wind me up. One of them said he didn't sleep a wink on any night session during his first season due to various happenings. They were really upset when I told them what we do during the winter as clearly their windup wasn't going to work on the new bloke.

I am a lot more worried about the living than the dead. Especially if they are creeping around late at night

I always take a Priest with me when I go fishing. well to be honest it is more of a very small baseball bat I had turned up on a lathe by a mate about 12" long and lives in the front of my tackle bag ..

hi just started fishing godalmings busbridge put a post on here thread on here yesterday in venues and the first reply i got was warning me of ghostly going on,s.

since i looked in to it on google and found one guy who one night heard his rod bag being opened and shone his head torch to see the zip being undone, it is also mentioned in this thread awhile back where the guy is after big frame.

the place has a very strange feel even in the day and spoke to another member recently who,s dog wont leave the bivvy when he is there at night

safe to say i wont be doing any nights on my own

Haha! Truly amazing!
I was implying that the stories were putting me off night fishing! Hence the "selling" of items of tackle associated with night fishing!
I will promise to give up trying to be funny as a new years resolution!
At least Sam got it.
Just to clarify I don't actually have any tackle for sale.
Also I don't really scare easily but I do have a couple of cracking "experiences" from deepest cornwall that I may share one day.

About ten years ago now, I remember fishing Lakeside in Wolvey with my niece and a friend. Half way through the session we had one almighty thunder storm so we all took refuge in our bivvies! When out of the blue we heard this massive bang!! Un zipping my door I was greeted with the site of a fallen tree, no more than 50 yards away with smoke coming from it!! It had only been hit by lightening!! and fell.... Looking back all I can say is how fortunate we all were that day, and how powerful nature can be.

Sorry this is nothing to do with fish well not with a fishing rod anyway but it is some thing I can not explain.

No I really do not believe at all in gost etc, I don't think my late wife is looking down on me I just do not believe, this is not to say a bang in the night doe not freak me out.

To the story.

I had take a very nice girlfriend to York we had gotten into the bedroom and as you do the second thing you want to do is take your coat of.
We had settled down to a very nice time and in the middle of this she let out a right scream, I went flying, trying to keep the blood were it should be I asked, in may be not the most simpathetic way what was wrong, thinking I may of gone an inch of target or something.
Anyway she said she shaw a man walk across the room, and being stupid I said at this point I would ask him in for a three, anyway you get the picture here, thing were not going well for me.

So we had a bit of a fall out but we did make up and had our showers and went out.

We were walking along and past a gost walk, we were together all the time, so no she could not of.
The chap was doing his talk and then said there is a story of hotel, whatever room 27 or a man who walks across the room and out of the window.

Have to say I wish I could explan that one. And she did make them change our room and there s no problems in doing so

Ow sorry I know this should be about fishing

The best I can say is we did have FISH amd chips


Sorry sorry, delet if you need too.

When I was younger and still prone to excessive nights out, I had a bender on the Friday night and decided to do the Saturday night at my local water, one bank was beside a road but the other was a killer walk through a forest and sloped upwards steeply for about 500yrs from the water’s edge. As was the norm, I was alone!

After settling in and still feeling a bit rough, darkness came suddenly with the overcast weather.

As I lay on my bedchair I started to dose until jolted awake by the sound of movement not far from the bivvy. I froze, then ten seconds later the sound of a huge branch being snapped followed by the crunching sound as the branch was ripped from the tree. It was deadly silent and every sound was magnified to jumbo jet proportions.

I can honestly say I have never been as scared before or since, I held my breath scared to move and give away my presence. My heart felt like it was gonna burst, it was beating so hard.

After what seemed like an age I let out a breath but for the rest of the night I was wired. There was no way I could leave, the darkness was total because of the trees and negotiating the hillside in the dark would have been futile.

I still don’t know what it was, some have suggested a Badger!?!?!?!

In Sepember I fished with three mates at a 24 acre lake in Central France. The lake is surrounded, on all sides by an ancient oak forest. After dusk it gets absolutely pitch dark in there.

We had had supper together (beef stew and mash) behind my swim and the lads had gone back to their respective swims to get their rods out.

I had tidied up my kitchen area and just put my feet up in my bivvy when all hell broke loose behind my bivvy. A dreadful screaming noise that got louder and louder, it sounded like several terrified women screaming their heads off.

With the hair sticking up on my neck and my Craghoppers filling, I leaped out of my bivvy to see WTF?

It was pitch dark now so I clapped my hands and shouted at the darkness, this did not work, it got closer and even louder.

I grabbed my bright green pen light torch and waved it at the forest. The beam jabbed out into the blackness and really seemed to upset my unwanted guests. The screaming reached fever pitch and there was the sound of shrubbery moving and twigs snapping.

I bounded onto my fishing platform, leapt into my little boat and rowed about 150 yards (much quicker than Sir Redgrave in his prime) to where Ian and Kenny were fishing.

They were stood on the end of their platform with head torches on wondering who was being murdered, the racket had scared them even at that distance away!

We thought about walking around to my swim with lights and large bank sticks to 'Sort Them Out' but instead we stayed put and polished off Kenny's copious supply of French Traditional Cidre. (being terrified is thirsty work)

The noise eased off and eventually ceased. We relaxed a bit and I had to 'Man Up' and row back to my pitch black bivvy in the trees, to the scene of the carnage!

Fortified by another couple of glasses of French Traditional Cidre I am proud to say I did just that. All was silent when I got there. Even a few wafts with the pen torch did not produce a murmer. I crept out of the boat and leapt into my sleeping bag.

In the cold light of day we decided that it was probably a family of foxes fighting over the food scraps in the shrubbery, maybe??

This was a very scary night!

I once fished an old chalk pit with my mate in the winter that was hardly ever fished but did contain some nice carp and when we got to our chosen swims we noticed police tape wrapped around a small cluster of tree's to the right of us but we thought nothing of it as there was always stolen motorbikes and cars being dumped down there. After spending two nights down there we were told that a women from a local care home had gone missing and after two days had been found dead in the cluster of trees a week before we got down there.

Iv got a couple of good tales to tel the first was when i was in my early 20s i was dating a nice gal from chobam for a couple of months when she invited me to stay with her parents for a wkend i went one friday for tea (how formal!!) after geting on with her folks ok evening came and they showd me my room i was a bot gutted not to b in with my gal but that was zero option the first thing i noticed was how cold it was no this was in august and about 25deg i settled in for the night about two am i woke up with a dry throaght and culdnt breath i started choking i got out bed and went and slept on the couch in the morning my gf asked me waht was up as i was white as a sheet i told her about my experience her mum said that a couple of years ago her son had comitted suicide in there by hanging himself needless to say i never stayed again. The second was at a lake in a park near me i was doing a weekend with a couple of mates and we ran out of water the second night i volanteered to get sum from a tap in the churchyard nexdoor this was about 9pm i wanderd over it was very misty but just as i finished toping the but up i noticed a figure with a lamp thinking it might be the vicar coming to tel me of i went to say helllo but noticedhis clothes lookd odd they were a dinner jacket very old looking i turnd round and hed vanished i ran streight back to my mates and told them in the morning i ventured back over and bumped into the vicar he told me a tale of a man who many years ago who was on his way home from a party and fell in a grave and broke his neck and died needles to say wen i fished that lake i made sure to take plenty of water in future

It was the vintage Matt, in all honesty I bought them from Tesco express in my usual hurry, where normally their stocks are around the 5% mark, and did not notice,
The rest is history, I think.

As a lad, I used to haul my gear on my Mums converted 'drag along' shopping trolley over 3 miles to my nearest club lake. There was no night fishing allowed then, and because of the distance, I used to creep out at about 2.30am, to get there well before first light.
On an almost moonless, overcast humid Summer night, I was on one of the long straight unlit road stretches of my journey that took me parallel with the M4 near Reading, and in the middle distance (around 300yds) I could have sworn I could make out a white shape moving on the other side of the road, as it got closer it moved across to my side, and appeared to be heading at me. By now I was starting to get a bit 'twitchy' , straining my eyes in the darkness to see what this thing was, at 50yds or so I could see it was definitely an animal of some sort and heading straight towards me. I froze not daring to move, my squeaky trolley wheels at a standstill, within less than a minute, a completely pure white Irish Wolfhound of massive proportions went silently passed me. I remained frozen to the spot for what seemed like ages, hardly daring to turn and look behind me for fear of some sort of attack, and of course, when I finally did, it was nowhere to be seen.
I'm not suggesting that this was definitely some sort of ghost Dog, but the weirdest thing is it didn't even turn to look at me, zero recognition of any kind at such close quarters, and it was completely silent of foot.

Last night my beverage choice was four bottles of Westons cider. Whilst nearing the half way point of my fourth bottle, I would save one half of the bottle' incase I needed to wet my whistle during the coming night.
So nearing 11pm I bid farewell to fri and wished my rods all the luck,
Upon awakening at at 2.45 am sat, I reached for my bottle with glee only to find the bottle upright and empty......????wtf I thought......stay safe people.

Fished a lake when I was 15 with a mate. One swim had a mound behind it and a tree with a low branch above maybe 8ft off the ground. Anyway on full moons I always thought I saw an old lady up there.

3yrs later after leaving the lake I saw a book on the village the lake was in... They used to hang people from the tree. Never ever will I go back there.

I hate to think mate,but I'm glad I didn't hang around to find out !

Never did fish that lake again.

I always wondered why whoever it was left my keep net on the bank and didn't nick it,I guess whoever it was wasn't an angler.

Back in the 70's,I would be about 15 at the time,I used to coarse fish a small lake near Ridgeway in Sheffield called Lower Skelper,a lovely little two acre lake right down in a secluded wooded valley where you usually saw nobody else all day.
My dad used to drop me off on his way to work and pick me up on the way home and I would fish all day on my own.
One day I had been fishing a few hours and caught a big roach of around 1.5 pounds and by far the best fish I had caught at the time. Into the keep net it went and I fished on.
Soon after I started to feel a bit uneasy and as if I was being watched,the feeling got worse and worse until I couldn't stay any longer as I was getting pretty scared.
Something or somebody was watching me,I just knew it.

I packed my gear but really wanted my dad to see the big roach,so I left my keep net in the water and quickly walked the half mile up the lane to the phone box at the top and rang my dad to ask him to come and pick me up as soon as he could.

He wasn't best pleased but an hour later he arrived wanting to know why his normally fishing mad son wanted to pack up early for the first time ever.
I told him why and we both went down the lane to the lake with him pulling my leg about being a big girls blouse.
When we got to my swim however there was no roach to be seen,the bank stick had been pulled out and my now dry keep net was laid out on the bank side !
I looked at my dad,he looked at me and neither of us knew what to say.

To this day I still don't know if my dad believed I caught that fish,he never said,but he knew wild horses wouldn't have made me pack up early without a very good reason.

They say you can feel when you are being watched.......I did that day,because whoever was watching me must have taken my net out and released that roach !!!!!!

Theres been a few digs over the years all around the old base . 80 % of it has been dug up and turned into fields now though which is a real shame .
A good friend of mine organises alot of the base digs all around the country using all the Geofizz gear , hes even been on Time Team a couple of times . Now hes found plenty of interesting stuff over the years .
The Liberator was obviously cleared after the crash happened but im sure if someone really wanted to they would still find bits and pieces of the plane and other stuff .
Id be abit more concerned about digging on the base itself as you never know what buried Ordnance you might find by mistake .

i would have built houses from my backside had that happened to me just reading that i was feeling a bit strange but i will say that is a great read mate ...and just for the record i do believe in these sort of things but thats down to this.......

the strangest thing i had was when i fished a small water last year in the middle of nowhere in essex it was a small water which i had never fished before and only went there for a 36hrs session , when i arrived there were a couple of guys fishing . i found a corner with a few showing fish away from these guys but still in sight of them and set up. as the evening came these guys left and there i was alone which i loved, the lake to myself. as dark fell i had a couple of fish to 12lbs and knew i was in for a good night . it got to around 1 in the morning and i could hear a couple of voices ?? now its in the middle of nowhere and theres nothing there except the lake and im the only one on it. my sences were on an all time high the voices went and within a few min i was settled down. then went to my bag for the night i was laying there thinking about life as you do and this church bell started to ring out now it went on and on for what seemed like ages and was very loud and everything felt very strange you could of heard a pin drop before the bells started now i didnt see anything but i didnt like this feeling the hairs on the back of my neck were standing up something just didnt feel right if that makes sence..........first light i had made my mind up i was leaving, first light came and as i made my way to the van i passed a couple of guys coming on to the lake they ask me how i got on and my reply was had a few mate but the church bells done my head in, they seemed to go on for ages and the the guys replied what church there isnt a church near here for miles

i never returned that was enough for me

He turned and tried to open the door again, but it was impossible to do so. Feeling frightened by his experience, he was relieved to return to his family in the booking office.

Half an hour later, the Cartwright family were in their sleeping-bags, each of them uneasy and bewildered by the strange events. The old building creaked occasionally, but apart from that and the occasional rumble of distant thunder, there was silence.

At about 2am, however, Jack woke with a start. He could distinctly hear voices which seemed to be coming from the parcels office next door. Quickly putting on some clothes, he decided to investigate.

He tried the door to the parcels office, but it seemed to be locked tightly. The voices were now audible, obviously coming from the room. Jack was determined to solve the mystery. Putting his shoulder to the door, he found to his amazement that it opened easily. Looking inside, he was aware of a misty atmosphere and a figure sitting in a chair at a desk. The voices had stopped now but an illuminating mist seemed to fill the room with a white incandescent glow. The shape of the figure at the desk was vague, but distinctly human. He seemed to be poring over some papers and the room itself appeared to be tidier than when he had visitied it earlier. It was as if Jack had stepped back in time to the scene of an earlier age. Suddenly, the figure seemed to be aware of Jack's presence and turned towards him, as if to ask what he wanted. Jack could see the face now, that of an elderly man with a deeply wrinkled face and steel-framed glasses. His face was gentle and benign. As Jack took a step towards the figure the mist suddenly cleared and the figure disappeared. Abruptly, Jack found himself in darkness. He switched on his torch and found himself alone in the office. He was about to shut the door when again an inexplicable force on the other side pushed it firmly shut. Jack again tried the handle, but the door was locked. Totally mystified by experience, he crept back to the booking hall and tried to sleep.

In the morning, Jack related his experiences to his wife who listened sympathetically but reassured him that it must have been a nightmare. As they prepared to leave and resume their homeward journey, Jack decided to take a last look around the parcels office. Gingerly opening the door, which gave way easily he saw the festoons of cobwebs, litter and crumbling plaster, exactly as before. Satisfied, he gently pulled the door, which closed easily behind him. With a final look back at the station buildings, Jack drove away from the scene of his mysterious experience.

The family's first stop at a garage for a minor repair led Jack into conversation with the proprietor. He told him about their ruined holiday and where they had spent the previous night, although he did not reveal his unusual experience.

The proprietor listened, then said, "You're a braver man than I am, mister. That station is supposed to be haunted by old Garrity who was that porter there in the old days, and not many people go near it in daylight, never mind after dark."

Jack laughed. "Well, he didn't bother me. Perhaps we were lucky."

The storm had now passed its zenith and although the rain was still pouring down, the Cartwright family felt relieved at finding some sort of shelter. Jack drove the car as near as he could towards the station building and switching off the the faltering engine. He took a torch with him, left the car and entered the old building. After what seemed an age, Jack appeared out of the gloom and got back into the car.

"I've had a good look round, June," he said. "The roof seems sound and I think I can force one of the windows and get in. It's a bit of a mess but at least we can be warm and dry in our sleeping-bags."

When they reached the building, Jack shone his torch through a broken window illuminating the interior of what evidently had been the booking office. The floor was covered with the rubbish of years, but the place seemed dry and the family's spirits rose. Jack went back to the car for a screwdriver with which he prised open a rotting window.

The family moved in everything they needed to make their stay as comfortable as possible. June lit their camping lamp which cast weird shadows around the room. After a meal, Jack suggested a walk to explore their surroundings. They found a long platform and the remains of a goods shed. The track-bed was weed-ridden and strewn with rubbish. A sense of abandonment overhung the once proud station. Picking their way through the rubble, the Cartwrights concluded their exploration, although they had no idea of where they were.

As the children walked ahead, Jack and his wife agreed that they could sense a strange atmosphere, something eerie and unpleasant. The children then ran back excitedly to them.

"There's a light in one of the rooms and we've heard voices," said Melissa.

Their father told them that as they were the only people present in the deserted station, it was not possible to see or hear such things. The children, however, were persistent and led the way round to the side of the building, stopping at what had probably been a small parcels office. Peering through the filthy window, they saw an empty room littered with small rubble, several pieces of broken dust-covered chairs and an old table, but no sign of life. Jack looked at the children.

"But this is the place, Dad," said Melissa. "There was a light like an old oil lamp giving a yellow glow, and we heard voices, too."

Jack believed that they could not be imagining it.

"I know," he said. "Let's see if we can get in from the inside as this door is either seized up or securely locked."

Jack fetched his torch and screw-driver, then climbed through the window, struggling to avoid the broken glass. Marking his way carefully to the door that would give entry to the parcels office, he shone his torch around him. Only dust and rubble showed the years of disuse. Nothing stirred.

After much effort, Jack succeeded in prising open the door with his screw-driver. He shone the torch around the room before entering. No footmarks disturbed the dust, cobwebs hung like festoons and a strange musty smell pervaded the atmosphere. Suddenly he became aware of an eerie feeling, as though he was being watched. Nervously, he stepped into the room and walked around, crunching the broken plaster that had fallen from the crumbling ceiling. There was no one in the room and no oil lamp, but a strange smell pervaded the air. He left the room and was about to close the door behind him when he was hit in the back by the door itself slamming shut.

Hi, this is a nice story about a ghost. It's called the Ghostly Caretaker:

Jack Cartwright (his real name and he lives 10 The Dingles, Bundelsey Rise, Birmingham BM4 5TG Mobile - 07985647235 Home - 0181457961 Work - 01816780946 you can go and ask him about it if you want to 24 hours a day without prior arrangement) and his wife June and their two children Alan 11, and Melissa, 13, had been on a camping holiday in the West Country, but unfortunately everything had gone wrong. The weather had been appalling and as a result the whole family had caught colds. Their misery was complete when the previous night vandals had visited their camp site and caused considerable damage, including slitting the Cartwrights' tent (I thought stuff like this only happened on Merseyside). When the electrics on their normally reliable car had started to fail, Jack and June decided to cut short their holiday and return to their home in South Yorkshire.

Packing up their equipment, they set off home. Their long journey was broken several times by the necessity to make repairs to the car. Darkness began to descend quickly as rainfilled clouds turned the sky to a menacing black void. Before long, the family ran into a ferocious thunderstorm. Driving with difficulty through torrential rain while thunder and lightning crashed overhead, jack found himself in a narrow West Country lane, realising that he had missed the turning that would have brought him back on to the main road. By now it was dark, they were obviously lost and their headlights had begun to fail. Their only hope was to find a farmhouse where a friendly farmer might be able to offer them shelter for the night.

As they began to despair, their son noticed a railway station sign. peering through the pouring rain Jack saw a post with an old weather-stained sign hanging from it. As they drive towards their refuge, they found themselves in a large station yard, now overgrown with weeds and bramble bushes and obviously derelict. Like so many abandoned branch-line properties, the dereliction was complete.

I posted this a while ago in another thread, but seems a bit apt for this.
This one is not Lake related but is 100% true.

Many many years ago I moved into a flat with a girlfriend. The flat turned out to have OTHER residents.
We would often see shaddows or a figure moving down the hallway. The misses was terrified but i was facinated. One evening i'm in the bathroom picking a zit in the mirror when someone laughed loudly in my ear as if they were stading right next to me. I bricked it!! There was nobody eles about.
There was one room that was colder than the rest, a little box room. It always put the hebejeebees up me when i went in there. The misses decided she was going to turn it into a spare room. Anyways, when it was finished we were in the room, about to get down to some jiggy when a loud voice Growled..AND I MEAN GROWLED her name! We absolutly shat it!!
Most would say thats enough to move out, but we stayed because I guess we knew things were very strange but so far it was only a case of "did you see/hear that?"
Anyways, we had a party and a few m8's over. We had told them what we had seen/heard and someone suggested a ouija board. So we set one up. after that thing got a little wierd. The glass was moving like crazy and kept spelling out Devil and Kill. I have to admit it got a bit hysterical at this point. everyone was shyting it. We asked it what it wanted and it kept spelling TO KILL and the glass was dashing over to my misses. She was in tears. anyways. the ONLY two people with fingers on the glass were me and the misses. everyone else backed off. he glass was going mental!! still spelling out the same things.
I Know I wasnt pushing it and I'm damn sure she wasnt. by this stage she was proper hysterical, so we closed the board down released the spirit out the window, smashed the glass and burnt the board.(supposedly the way to end a session properly)
We saw lots of odd things in that flat. Things moved. The salt celler would move by itself across the work top infront of a room full of people. TV would switch on and off.
Anyways oneday we get a knock at the door and it's the previous tennant hunting some lost mail.
So we asked him "anything strange about this flat when you lived here?" He laughed and said "That was the reason I moved out"

I moved south and ended up living in two other haunted houses. Events in both witnessed by others.
I consider myslef to be a logical person, so I do look at things that happen with skeptisism and try to find a logical rational reason, but sometimes when you have exhausted the logical/rational, the only thing left is the impossible/unbelievable

Mate I got to say I'm still not a true believer and up till this point thought that anything that goes bump in the night was a load of old b@llux. I never in my life experience anything to make me remotely think there is anything out there and I've not lived a sheltered life. I'm not a great one with a pen or writing stories and I can safely say I'd fish any where on my own. There's people that know me on here and i think i can safely say that vouch for me that I am not feeble minded or easily impressioned as well.

I'm undecided about it all myself as its all easily explained away.

Now my misses thinks its Hirlarious as she in to all that stuff and I've taken the piss out of her for years

I got to say this is one of my fav threads. I thought I'd share my own experience which I have to say is happening at present in our bungalow. When we first moved into our bungalow two years ago at first you'd always get the impression someone was staring at you from the kitchen as it backs on to the front room. It was unnerving at times and could be pretty intense feeling. We also went through loads of light bulds as the lights would turn there self off and on in the kitchen and the light bulds would just go. I put it down to poor wiring in there and fitted new fuse box, wiring, switches and light etc. still happens though...

Next one was a couple a weeks ago my printer just started printing blank pages off, now the odd bit was it wasn't even turned on. To say it baffled me is a understatement, I just Stood there. Staring at first as don't think my brain could compute it.

The most recent one was I sat at home just browsing the net a couple of nights ago when the kitchen tap just explode in to life. I mean the thing went from not being on to being on full. I walked into the kitchen to turn it of and God it sent shivers down my spine

I got to say this though I have never felt any nasty or evil intent. I'm not a big believe or anything and these are just a couple of long list of events, doors flying open etc. I always look for rational explanations and still not a 100% convinced it's a ghost or something. Now my sisterinlaw is a medium or whatever she calls her self and reckons its a old lady who owned the house before we lived here. She reckons she does it to me because she wants me to Acknowledge she's still here lol. My wife only has seen things happen when I'm at home and when away fishing etc has never experienced a single thing and not a single thing has ever happen when my kids are about lol. its always felt warm and never scary as well, just a bit freaky.

Make of it as you will as still deciding myself

I've read Nordle's story somewhere before. I was creeped out then and I'm creeped out now.
Still the best I've read so far though.

Well sorry i mentioned it, as my dead sister many years ago warned me its not to be messed with as she had a nasty experience in her younger days.

Going off on a tangent , about 15 years ago me and the wife were on holiday in Greece , when i had this sudden feeling of coldness and i started to cry and said to my wife my sister has died .
Don,t be silly she said , ten minutes later the phone rang confirming my vision as my parents had rung the hotel to tell me

I have had a lot of these since my parents have passed on , some good some bad .

Another was 6 years ago i had another vision that i was driving a new Transit down to France with two of my mates for two weeks fishing and a monkey in my wallet .
Bearing in mind i was skint when i saw this .
It became real two years ago , wierd or what .

I have had others that have proved correct , some good and some bad.

i even seem to know when i,m going to blank as recently this proved correct as well .

Just recently i said to my wife our shop is going to be robbed , it was two weeks ago .

Coincidence ????? somethings going on

Don't even get me going there. I know for a FACT that the church know of what goes on. Remember a girl having a break down after we had done ouigi board and ended up in therapy from priests. We ( us that we're there) had a visit from the local vicar telling us it was not something to play around with as we didn't know what we were messing with. There are things that just can't be explained.

more about haunted lakes guys.

isnt korda lake known to be haunted?

and i always hear of a lake called godalming poppin up in these threads as bein a place many people see stuff and refuse to night fish it

heres a good little one i pulled from another thread from another board

I've been meaning to write this somewhere for a while now, and this thread seems like as good a place as any.

A good few years ago, I was doing a night on a little overgrown pit that I had found on an abandoned (WW1?) military base/airfield.
It was winter, and I was in the middle of nowhere, so by about 11pm it was absolutely pitch black.
I was sitting in the bivvy looking out towards the rods when i thought i saw something big drifting slowly from left to right across the door.
It was that dark that i could'nt be sure what it was, so i got my torch out, got out of the bivvy and had a good look around. Absolutely nothing.
Now by this time, i don't mind admitting that i was more than a little nervous, because although it was dark, i was sure i had seen something.
To try and calm myself down, i walked a few yards behind the bivvy and shone the torch up and down a small path running through some woods. Again i saw nothing.
Then, as i was standing there wondering what to do, the torch dimmed briefly, then went out.
By now i was seriously scared, and i just knew that "something" was going to happen.
I wasn't a great believer in anything supernatural up until that point, but what happened next changed my mind forever.
My plan was to get back to the bivvy, zip the door down, then hide in my sleeping bag until it was light enough to leave.
So, i started to walk back to my bivvy in the pitch black, (i could'nt see a thing because the torch had just been on and my eyes had not adjusted back to the dark), with one of my hands out in front of me to guide me in the dark, when my hand touched something that felt like someones bare arm.
I screamed in pure terror, and instinctively swung with the torch that my other hand was holding, but did'nt hit anything.
By now i was crying and shaking and felt on the edge of going mad, i was that scared.
Then, when i got back to my bivvy i jumped in, zipped it up tight, got in my bag, shut my eyes tight and covered my ears. I was literally terrified. whatever was happening, i did'nt want to hear it, and i did'nt want to see it.
The next thing i remember is waking up at some point later in the night. I could'nt believe i had fallen asleep but apparently i had.
It was still dark, but the moon was now offering a little bit of light.
I was sitting there wondering what the hell had happened, and if i had been dreaming, when i heard a shuffling, rustling noise coming from under the bedchair.
The terror returned in an instant, and i froze, listening hard.
There was definately something moving under there, but the more i listened, the more i was sure it was something small, some small animal that had come in to get out of the cold.
Whatever it was, i did'nt want to be sharing my bivvy with it, so decided it had to go.
I got off my bedchair, unzipped the bivvy door, had a look out, and decided that i maybe wasn't so scared anymore.
I went back in the bivvy and tried my torch, which to my surprise came on straight away, so, moving my sleeping bag out of the way, i shone the torch under my bedchair to see what was making the noise.
At first i could'nt see anything at all, but then i saw something small move underneath my groundsheet.
I must admit, i wasn't too bothered by this, because on numerous occasions before and since i have lifted my groundsheet and found frogs/toads under there, so with it being fairly near to the edge of the bivvy, i reached under with the intention of pushing it out.
As soon as my hand made contact with it, i was grabbed hard by what was undoubtebly a big, strong, human hand.
I screamed and screamed, and pulled back with all of my strength, but i could not get free.
My hand was being gripped by a freezing cold, absurdly strong, human hand that was under my groundsheet.
Eventually, after what seemed like a good 3-4 minutes but was probably less, the hand just kind of melted away and i was free.
I ran, screaming and crying from the lake, completely aimlessly through the woods, continually tripping up and running into things until i somehow made my way back to my car.
I got in and drove home, managing to calm myself slightly before i got in.
Luckily, i lived alone at that point, because i was in a real mess for a long time, and i would'nt have wanted anyone to see me like that.

As an end to this story, i will say that every word is true, and i even ended up having Counselling and Hypnotherapy to get over it, which i believe i have done.
I still fish as much as ever, but since that happened a few years ago, i've not done one night on my own.

interesting reading this , i would say some people have senses far superior to the average man in the street .
The ability to see things others don,t .
Its a well known fact that with all our medical knowledge we almost know nothing about human brain power , after all some people are very susceptible to small electrical anomalies , where others are not .
And being that the brain works on minute electrical impulses some people see apparitions , ie spirits ect when others scoff.
Don,t get me started on this subject , as i have seen things also , but i see it as a gift , and don,t even mention UFO ,s
but that is another story.
We think as a human race we are so clever , but in fact we know nothing .
As for civilized , we have not come much farther than bashing each other over the head with rocks , some 200 ,000 years ago.

`The more you want to believe the more you will believe `etc....

I think there may be truth in that..Ken..

But consider this maybe...when i was 11 yrs old i physically lost something...as i got older i had to compensate for this loss,i so i gained heightened awareness of all my surroundings ,i think what i am trying to say in a very inadequate way....is ,i gained heightened smell and spatial awareness far more than the average person...to compensate for this loss..

I have learned to use this `taught`awareness to my advantage....for example in my photographic days or location an angling situation....or even otter predation on a lake some may call it a sixth sense or luck....it cant be luck as im not lucky.......i just see stuff before others for sure..

Or it could just be that i have an interest/sensitivity in this sort of thing.....ie the `spirit of the human condition` or the paranormal...i dunno but it may be locked away in the pineal gland or` third eye`


Or is it cos me mums a `wise women `.....LOL..

Ken, I certainly didn't or don't want to believe in ghosts and its something I never thought about and still don't to be honest, so I don't think I convinced myself something was happening that wasn't (not consciously anyway.)

BUT like I said earlier, there is a large part of the brain that we don't use, so who knows what's going on there, maybe it paints pictures or experiences that arnt happening really.

All I know is that I experienced what I said I did, whether my sub-consious mind made it up or if it really happened, it felt very real to me

ok hear goes, not fishing related im afraid

i believe in ghosts because unfortunately i have had to many experiences not to. I will say now i am not religious and i am not easily scared.

i will give you the only experience i have had as a group as it was one of the most memorable.

when i was about 14 me, my brother and my cousin used to go to my mums friends house. we used to go and babysit for her so she could go out on the piss with my mum. she had a pc game called baldurs gate we used to play all night (right little nerds).

this one time mo (mums friend) came to pick us up and the whole journey she went on to tell us that the ghost of a young boy dressed in what she thought were Victorian looking clothes had started haunting her house. She said they had named him richard. Now i had had many bizarre experiences myself as a child so even at 14 i believed in ghosts but usually all my mums friends were completely nuts to say the least. we all shared a look in the back of the car and took it all with a pinch of salt. Mo went on to tell us how at night she can hear the boy coughing in her daughters bedroom and how she sometimes wakes up with a red mark on her chest where he sleeps cuddled up to her....

so we get to the house and my mum and mo go out. we pulled a small bench up to the computer and me and my cousin commenced watching my brother play baldurs gate. i will add now that mo had recently been camping and there was a tent on the floor and tent pegs etc everywhere.

the first incident happened almost straight after i had put louise (mos eldest ) to sleep. we heard an almighty smash downstairs in the kitchen. I was given the task of going first downstairs armed with a tent peg. We opened the kitchen door to see cutlery, plates and cups everywhere. I mean Everywhere. ok so by this stage we were bricking it and we all suddenly realised that what mo was talking about in the car may have been true.

we all had a nervous chuckle and went back upstairs trying our hardest to concentrate on the game, this is where it all got messed up. I decided in my usual idiotic way to wind up my brother and cousin.

"come in Richard if your outside" i shouted over my shoulder at the closed door.

the door handle squeaked down slowly and the door opened a crack as if something small had entered. My cousin at this point began crying (i had hardly ever seen him cry before) and we felt this presence enter the room. i know it sounds silly but a feeling of a child entering is what we all discussed we felt and still talk about today. There was a tent laid out on the floor and we watched as small indents like footprints came across it towards us. my cousin Rudolph (yes thats his name, his dad is rudolph senior) is fully Guyanese and as black as the night and his skin had gone pale and he was dripping with sweat.

We watched in horror as the footsteps ended at the edge of the tent and than the worst part of it all happened. we felt what must have been Richard sit on the bench next to Rudolph. I looked at nathan (my brother) and he smiled in an iv just messed my pants kind of way and we both looked at rudolph who looked like he was going into shock.

Suddenly we felt this feeling just go and Richard left the room.

we spoke later me and my brother and we think he did not show himself because rudolph was so upset. me and my brother allthough scared had had plenty of strange experiences growing up so yes we were bricking it but not as much as rudolph.

we still talk about it today and Rudolph tells just about anyone that cares to listen as it was the first and only experience like this he had ever had.

That's what happened to me when I was being strangled (sic).

I don't expect anyone to believe my experiences. Only I know what happened. I'm the type of person that 'seeing is believing' ! So I can understand people who haven't Experianced anything.

That, I believe is called sleep paralysis and is reasonably common.
What's that place in Surrey, Busbridge park? That's supposed to have something of an atmosphere to it. It's a club water, perhaps Godalming AC or some-such.

Becoming slightly infatuated with this thread after reading it from beginning to end last night. Some of the stories sent a shiver down my spine.

Thankfully I've never had anything happen to me whilst fishing though one of the lakes on my club ticket always feels weird after dark.. I've always felt like there's something not right about the place, and every single person I speak to says the same. I wouldn't be at all surprised to encounter something down there should I spend any time fishing it on my own.

The scariest thing I had was waking up in my bedroom one night with the feeling I was being pinned to my bed by something/someone. No matter how hard I tried I couldn't move a muscle and my attempts at screaming resulted in just a tiny breath of air leaving my throat. That carried on for 20 seconds or so before it just stopped.. never happened before or since .

Is this simply because I think such 'visions' are the product of a vivid imagination, one that truly wants ghosts and goolies to exist?

That may well be true mate, but the desires to see such things I wonder may be buried so deep in the subconscious that maybe people believe that on the surface they're seeing it against their will. Occasionally I have bumped in to some folks who didn't believe at all until they saw such things. I think you have to be careful though, trying to *impose* any sort of truth onto somebody else. Just because I've seen one, and had a very frightening experience does not necessarily mean that's some sort of absolute truth which applies to everyone which they are guaranteed to experience at some point. Definitely something going on here which relates to the individual's perception. I've often wondered if certain types of mind can drag up things that might be best left alone, and if you're not of that persuasion you maybe won't have those problems.

Me I think it is all a load of ball cocks!

Somebody's got to! it's comforting to know that some at least are immune!

I also remember fishing `Rashleigh`1990/91....on the bar swim ,in november...all i can say is i saw a miner complete with cornish shovel..looking towards the m25 swim ....just standing there he was....

I must have spent more days and nights in the Bar swim in my 35 years as a Club member that just about anybody and I have never seen the Cornish shovel OR the miner!

Is this simply because I think such 'visions' are the product of a vivid imagination, one that truly wants ghosts and goolies to exist?

Me I think it is all a load of ball cocks!

A very silly lady of our acquaintance once bet me and the missus £100 that we could not sleep a whole night in a room in a certain hotel room Apparently the room was subject to huge temperature drops, strange lights and manifestations, and worst of all, furniture moving around and loud bumps and thumps.

We gratefully accepted the money the next morning after a peaceful and undisturbed night's sleep during which we neither heard, saw or felt anything, and the wardrobe didn't change places with the dressing table either....

The more you WANT to believe, the more you WILL believe...UFO's anybody?

.............a sort of carpy steven king

as an aside , although not spooky in the slightest , i have personally whitnessed a large black cat , and i dont mean a moggy , crossing the field on the opposite side of the lake i was fishing in Southern Ireland and in broad daylight .
I have absoutley no doubt that it was a big cat (panther , leopard etc) and when i spoke of it to a couple of the local anglers they told me it had been around for yrs and loads of people had seen it .

Anyway...this act of parliament came in ,they just disappeared......rumour has it thet were let go on Bodmin Moor,but one was seen at lower Tamar lake .........

I was relaying this tale to my mate [ee now packed up cos of lutra lutra]..one stormy night on this huge ...hic hic..

I remember it like it just happened. I just stared at it, not believing what I was seeing. I never saw it like that again but did see small coin size ones regularly. Never that big though. Fascinates me but doesn't scare me.
A funny thing the night after it happened. I was led on the bed staring at the ceiling wanting it to happen again. It was pitch black and I actually asked it to show itself again. Flash....... Something lit on the ceiling. I stared intently again.........flash.....again. Wow I thought. Then it happened again, it was then I realised it was the poxy smoke detector lol. Felt a idiot lol but no explanation for all the other stuff

Sam , sorry for the late reply ............i wasnt having a go at you or anyone who has had paranormal experiences, the feeble minded i refered to relates to people ability to believe what they are told without question but more importantly to be led or indoctrinated without question ..............check out Bertrand Russell "celestial teapot "

Ok green `orbs `it is then.....

Like everything i have written.....this is totally true....

Back in the 1980s.....i remember it being the olympics on tv,it was the one where this American athelete ,the great Carl Lewis won all those gold medals...I was still living at home and that particular night i was on my own....just me and my dog a fantastic german shepperd....given to me when i was 16..

Now remember my village didnt have any street lights for years ...so being in the dark dont bother me at all,even to this day i can walk in the darkest woods or up on the cliffs ,with a huge drop below in the dark ,it dont worry me at all......

Sam will tell you i will see something a long time before anyone else......especially `otter`signs...LOL

Anyway me n me dog were watching the olympics ,all of a sudden all the hair on the back of my dogs mane just stood up ,totally erect...then he started to growl ,showing ..baring his teeth...then he started to bark and snap and jump into the air..i never saw anything like this from my dog before,but he wasn`t aggressive he was quite clearly petrified....THEN i saw it.....three large green orbs ,shaped like hot water bottles..human form but no arms drifted up and over the fireplace...ever so slowly...

My dog was terrified i could see the whites of his eyes.....he then ran up the stairs....and carried on growling and barking like crazy...

and thats it.....mind you my gramps/mums old place is hundreds of yrs old and built into a cliff face..

Dogs are very sensitive creatures...

I'm gonna ask a question. As you've read, I've seen and had some strange Experiances over the years. One only 4 yrs ago. I lived in an extremely old cottage (16th century) and there were a few things that I had heard there. One thing that happened I'd love explained what it was I saw. I was led on my bed, hadn't been to sleep, and this white glowing light as big as your fist appeared about a foot from my head. It had like sparks coming off of it. I sat up and it was still there for a good two minutes before it disappeared. Anyone any idea???

..Sam i have known you for a little while now and i would say you were a strong minded man and very intelligent.

The day you came around my cottage to tell me of your experience,i really could tell something had disturbed you,that for sure..it really bothered you mate not only that you almost seemed embarassed to tell me in front of my family.....no need to have been mate..

My sister is also highly intelligent and was a respected teacher in a private school in shropshire,but the pressures of the job GOT to her,plus she was interested in paganism...as she felt unhappy in her life she visited a`life coach`from that point on her life disintegrated....this `lifecoach`planted seeds in a vunerable human being and she tried to take her own life....very sad ....especially as it all stemmed from a `pupil` that spat in her face...[she`s a bit better now i must say]

I have learnt to respect other people ,even if they dont do the same to me..

There are lots of things that are beyond belief..but i have been confronted by pure evil in its human form...and it scared me and my mum witless,i cant tell anyone because people would convince themselves we are `not the full quid`

I also remember fishing `Rashleigh`1990/91....on the bar swim ,in november...all i can say is i saw a miner complete with cornish shovel..looking towards the m25 swim ....just standing there he was....i packed up and went home..the next time i went there i told another member about what i saw,you should have seen his face drain of colour...he had seen it before too..!!!!

I am keen to hear it Adder, and I am sure others are

I don't think that of Buddi, but his feeble comment has rilled me and I do look forward to his response.
There is nothing wrong with a passionate debate as long as both party's remain respectful, I know I will and I am sure Buddi will too
Nothing personal atall Buddi, you make some good posts and seem educated, I look forward to constructively discussing this with you. Its all good stuff

I'd recommend leaving this thread be now Sam from the religious angelic and demonic aspects of it. It's a touchy subject mate you'll always find someone who won't take you seriously. I as many on here know, not long back was a jumped up little **** who couldn't wait to over-react and tear into the validity of other people's views who should have righteously cowered under my towering intellectual power and truly awesome experience......

I'm not saying that's who buddi is - he seems cool to me, we just have to understand that until something scary's happened to open their mind to another point of view some people won't believe it and will always doubt it - as I did - rather naively enthusiastically. It's not an invalid aspect of life at all it's just very scientific - it's the kind of thrashed out proven rational thinking which gives hard edged solutions to things like engineering, physics, psychology and psychiatry problems in life and we have much to be thankful for it, and the erroneous theories and beliefs it shields us from - and thus the dead ends it prevents us having to wander (which can be fatal).

But as you and I know there is very different type of knowledge and experience out there. I'd recommend we just leave it at that mate, those who know can just be content to know and that's it maybe?

Anyways - I'm itching to write up a good story from my Railway book if anyone's interested?

Buddi, you have hinted that people that experience these so called paranormal experiences are prehaps feeble minded fools, can you expand on that please?

I'm am skeptical also, even though I have experienced a few things, I also mentioned that there is a large part of the brain that we don't use, which could be responsible for some things.

Given the fact that I am only 27 and have experienced 3, possibly 4 paranormal activites (potentialy) then I guess I would be classed as someone who is receptive to these things.
Can you tell me if this makes me feeble and week?

I don't want to seem like I am giving it the big one, but i would say I am quite a strong person compaired to many others, given what life has thrown at me to date (I'm not talking paranormal here)

You sound like you are sure of yourself and have strong opinions, please enlighten me if you can

Pete I was scared stiff & not a good stiff!!! An afternote to the story happened about two months ago. A couple of friends of mine are now fishing the same lake for catfish ( no pun intended) so I popped up to see how they were getting on. While up there I bumped into the old gamekeeper & asked him if there had ever been any more sightings. He said not for about twenty years but before that he & some others had been out lamping & over the course of about four years they had three times picked up bright green ( I think) eyes in the beams which he said were not the norm for any of our usual countryside creatures. He was also convinced that it was from a big cat.

Although this is not a ghost story it is an incident that certainly scared the s**t out or me. It happened about twenty four years ago when I was about eighteen. I was fishing a small, well known lake in the middle of nowhere, I say lake but really it was not much more than an acre. I had fished the lake many times both day & night, catching consistantly but for some reason the bigger residents kept eluding me. The night the incident took place was no different to any other that I had fished, it was a warm clear summers night with a very bright full or nearly full moon. I had arrived late afternoon & set up in the middle of the lake in order to fish an island in front of me. The rods were cast out to their spots & my Hutchie bivvy was put up & food was cooked & eaten. After sitting watching the lake & having a smoke I decided to get my head down as nothing of any note was moving. I awoke some hours later & looked at my watch which said 2:15 & as I lay there I realised that it was deathly quiet, there was none of your normal night sounds just complete silence, nothing.Thinking it strange I got up, lit up a smoke & went outside to try & fathom out what was going on. Outside the bivvy, the moon lit up the whole lake so that everything was visible pretty clearly. I looked around trying to work out why it was so quiet when all of a sudden I froze & felt the blood drain out of me. There not fifty yards away from me to my left on a raised bank I saw the sillouette of what I can only describe as a big cat, much bigger than any dog I have ever seen looking, I think straight at me. I can't describe the emotions that went through me & it seemed like ages although it was more than likely only seconds that I stood there transfixed by the creature when all of a sudden one of my Delkims went off on a one toner. I think instinctively I must have turned & grabbed the rod but when I looked back towards the sillouette it had gone. Now blind panic set in & I hauled the fish in,in about two seconds flat all the time scanning the surrounding bank trying to see where the creature had gone. The fish was uncerimoniously netted, put on the mat, unhooked & put back in record time. I then dived back into the bivvy, zipped it up tight & then sat there chain smoking until first light & some noise returned to the woodland. Once it got light I walked up to where I had seen the shape & examined the ground where I found two very large paw prints. I went back & wound the rods in & went to my car so I could drive to see the owner who lived at a nearby farm & tell him about the nights events. As I got to the farm the heavens opened, real stair rods as I ran to the door. He answered the door & I told him what had happened & surprisingly did not seem shocked. He then told me that a week before they had been out fox hunting when one of the hunt went after something that he swore had been a big cat but lost it!! We went back to the lake to see the footprints but unfortunatly the rain had washed most of the imprint away, leaving only a small indentation, not enough to use to identify what it was. The lake in question is situated about a mile from a zoo but surely if something had escaped they would have told someone, wouldn't they?????

In fact if you're interested I've got a great book here about Railway Ghosts. Has some fantastic sotires in it. I know this is a fishing thread but if I may, perhaps a type up of some of the best stories might be appropriate? What do you think

They're good posts Buddi. My suspicion is that there is indeed no absolute, but at least two rather distinct types of person.

One suits Monotheism and one suits Paganism. Both have downfalls. In the Pagan or red path as I would call it there is a great danger that you can end up seeing cruelty or deviousness as acceptable. In Monotheism which I call the blue path there are dreadful risks that you can become excessively pious, distrusting and judgemental and end up being equally if not even more marose and cruel than the Pagan.

I think if you can accept that fundamental difference in class (rather like a Lord Of The Rings class like elves and dawrves and stuff) then maybe you can simply start to see that one man's poison is another man's pleasure. I'm convinced that whatever went after me was maliciously intended. However that may simply be as a result of the fact I wandered onto territory I shouldn't have and underestimated the importance of just being who you're supposed to be.

If there's one thing I'm beginning to see very clearly there are at least two fundamentally different types of human of heritage unknown. This fits exactly into the concept of the importance of variety.

I'm careful and responsible with my faith. I do not reject gay people, do not reject pagans or anyone else - and I entirely agree the dangers may well lie within as a result of simply trying to be something you should not be. If you try and impose one order on everybody you're going to cause serious problems sooner or later and will end up becoming unpleasant.

For me, despite these terrifying experiences - which I'm clearly not alone in experiencing - I still have the sense to admit it's only something I observed, and that might simply be because I was asking questions I shouldn't have been instead of just being who I'm meant to be if you catch my drift

if i had some experience of this nature it would prob persuade me to seek an explanation . if i had been frightened by it it may even push me toward religon or faith ............the old no aithiests in foxholes scenario but as it stands i remain sceptical until it happens to me .
I have heard it discussed that some people are more susceptable or are conduits for paranormal happenings , maybe this is the case or maybe the world is full of feeble minded fool who will believe virtually anything they are told .
my ex wife used to stay at her aunts as a child quite alot . they lived in a very old NT property which was allegedly haunted . My ex had several encounters with opening windows , ticking clocks with no internal movements , things dissapearing out of the room and being found in strange places etc ...........any time i visited or stayed there i saw and heard nothing but an ancient old mansion in a poor state of repair ............their heating bill was something else ............that would have given me nightmares .

please dont think i am having a dig Pete , i have an imense ammout of respect for you as an angler and person and always enjoy reading your posts .

not just christianity , but all organised religion i have had any experience of ............though i must admit to knowing little of the hindu of buddist religion ............the muslims i would lump along with the rest .

its all a question of faith ..............of which, i sadly have, very little .

sure, most of them are a good metphor for a clean lifestyle but human nature would dictate otherwise . We have a tendancy to subjugate the meek or weak . We have a tendancy toward greed jealousy and averace .........we as a race will eventually ..........in the imortal words of Roger Waters "amuse ourselves to death "

war , politics and religion all serve the few to dominate the many .

but thats reality ............i`m more intersted in the ghost stories tbh.

protestantism , catholisism, paganism etc are all unproven systems of belief relying on nothing more than fear, guilt and faith to motivate us .

So would you add Christianity as a whole to your list, or Buddism, Islam, Hinduism?

ADD ............i have no doubt you believe but i see that as a major part of the problem , clinging to the mast of religion only feeds all those subconsious fears and guilt ......instilled by religion in the first place .
My younger brother was diagnosed some 15yrs ago and like you he is very literate and intelligent ............which only served to fuel his own dillusions ..........had his iq been some 30-40 point lower he may have had fewer problems . Self analysis of ones own mental cond can be even more dangerous that self diagnosis of physical ailment .
i am an out and out sceptic , of all things unproven ..............most of what goes bump in the night has a rational explanation but thats not to say i couldnt be shown otherwise . Some of the stories in this thread really made my skin crawl .
witchcraft whether black or white and demonic worship , protestantism , catholisism, paganism etc are all unproven systems of belief relying on nothing more than fear, guilt and faith to motivate us .

what i do bellive is that we know next to nothing about a huge portion of the human brain which contols everything we think and do .

This is a true tale make of it what you will but this genuinely effected members of my family although i must stress i never saw anything but others did. I Was telling my sister about the stories about ghosts on this forum and she asked me if i had told the story about the wardrobe it has nothing to do with fishing but about a strange event that happened years ago.

I was about thirteen years old and we were still living at craven arms when my step father brought home an old wardrobe he had been given it was put in my bedroom it was a funny looking thing and had beautiful scrolls carved into the woodwork and four faces also carved in the surrounding wood work. i must admit i did not like it in my bedroom there was something odd about it i would lie there staring at the monstrosity i really did not like it at all but i had to put up with it.

We moved back to Bayston hill when i was nearly fifteen the wardrobe came with us and it was installed once again in my bedroom i really did not like it why i don't know it felt evil but i never told my parents how i felt i was eighteen when i met and married my wife in the year was 1960 when i moved out my parents started to foster young children . Two of the girls stayed with my parents until they were about 18 years old and slept in the room that was mine they both a had very frightening episode when sleeping in this room they told my mother and father that nasty things had come out of the said wardrobe my father being a bit strict would have none of it until my mother saw something in the bedroom she could not explain what she saw. so it was moved into my sisters room she had bad dreams from day one and in the end the wardrobe was moved to the shed and that was were it stayed for many years dad did strip the brown varnish of and glossed it white. Eventually my sister married and being short of furniture the wardrobe ended up at there house it was put in the spare bed room all was quite until my nephew Andy was put into that bedroom he would be about for years old he started to scream the house down and would run into his parents bedroom most nights, saying things were coming out of the wardrobe who's to say they were not then my sister twigged and told her husband Richard about her own experience with the wardrobe, it was taken out side and broken up and burned they experienced no more trouble with that room and young Any slept soundly. believe what you will but this is a true account that happened to my family.

Pete, my Dad was reading one of Yate's old books one time and he described an awful experience at a water somewhere. He felt uneasy from the word go, would only night fish it with a mate and then suddenly in the dead of night he saw a white glow going around the pond. When him and his mate shined the torch right into it they reckon it was leaving a sticky residue on the leaves which reflected the torchlight!

Needless to say... they ran - left all the gear and never went back!

Sam that's exactly the idea. Each to their own, I don't expect anyone else to believe a word of it. I also strongly suspect it's a dilemma that could never happen to some, it kind of depends on the *type* of person you are, and that can go deeper than you might think.

I liked your story a great deal, it gave me the confidence to share my own

I do believe in things such as ghosts, but I am unsure about demons and devils to be honest.
That's not me knocking you Adder, I keep an open mind and I'm sure many people won't believe my story and others on here, but it 100% happened to me so who am I to say you didn't experience demons or whatever ay.

Either way well done for saying it, it takes balls to admit you were diagnosed as a psychzophrenic, no matter what the cause was.

Another point in all of this is that we only use a small part of our brain, we all know how powerful that small part is, so who knows what is going on with the rest of it, if you know what I mean

That's a nice reply Pete. Those who don't believe in such things to the point of mocking people basically have no business replying in this thread, lest they risk getting probably getting a visit themselves!

I tell you what, it's taught me to respect life, respect people, respect your leaders, respect your elders, respect the need for obediency and never, ever, ever criticise someone else's choices, no matter how repugnant they may seem to you. For me at least, total obedience, respect and benevolence is now the only way to go. The thought of condemning anyone or anything, even the most wicked entity is something I don't even want to hear mentioned in life. I have no right to sway anyone else's choices, but I do have a duty to warn others - and that's all.

Maybe someone else who's had this experience may surface now in this thread - until they see or hear others mentioning it they won't have the courage to surface

Back in 2004 I was fishing one of the small pools on hamsted Heath with a mate of mine. It was quite a busy lake frequented by dog walkers and families out for a walk in the park.

Early in the afternoon a van parked behind the lake, thinking nothing of it we carried on fishing until we noticed a police man up on the road and we thought we were going to get a parking ticket. It was then we noticed that he was accompanied by several other men and a film crew. We thought they must be filming a training video or something like that.

We retreated to our bivvies and thought nothing of it until my mate mark shouted me to look up towards the road, which I did............to the sight of the "copper" wearing nothing but his bobbies helmet and pink high heels and another bloke performing a sex act on himWhile the film crew filmed them!!!!!!

My thoughts were I hope that's not paying for a parking ticket or they are filming a gay porn film and he ain't a police man!!!! After they had "finished" the director must have decided to film some of the local wild life and people around the lake including me and my mate cowering next our bivvies.

So if if there are anybody that enjoys that sort of lifestyle on this site and they happen to watch a film like that with two blokes catapulting tutti fruitti boillies at the cameraman it's me and my mate mark!!!!!!

I think I am still suffering post traumatic stress disorder!!!!!!

What made it so terrifying was how I felt, it was kind of like something was feeding off my energy.
I had very dark thoughts going through my head that I didn't feel came from my own mind, it was very strange and very very hard to explain.

I'll call it out for what it was - An Exorcism. And one I had to actively take part in to get it to work. I also had to do it completely alone because no-one ever listens to people who talk about this stuff. The ways these things work is clever, they will set you up so you arrive somewhere just in time to hear a certain piece of music or a certain conversation which leaves you flabbergasted at how someone or somethings knows what you've been thinking. There was one incredibly obvious incident where someone outrightly asked me about something very specific that I was wrestling with at the time. I gave the right answers and promptly never went back there. I know what a hallucination is and this wasn't one of them. Several other very dislodging co-incidences occured. I fought them all giving perfect answers, every time. I've learned things about life I just could never share with anyone. It's very notable that at one time a medium (of all people) chased after my mum after a reading and thrust a coin with Saint Jude on it into her hand and said "you're going to need this". Saint Jude is an Exorcist.

I know damn well how this will sound to others, but I will say this - once someone has conquered their ego, you'd better start paying attention to them, because they're not trying to big anything up - I'm describing this out of fear not pride or drama. I just don't know where I would even begin to describe the symbology, co-incidences, psychosis and just plain terror I felt during this period which has not long ended. The atmosphere was absolutely diabolical - and I felt something had big, big plans for me that were aimed at tricking me to follow ambition, but were definitely *not* for the benefit of humanity as a whole, and I'm well aware of how vain and egotistical that sounds. Still feels appropriate though.

I don't like talking about this too much but I'm not staying quiet about it in case others who need relief from it may read this topic and these writings. I'm sorry to have to say it, but if it hasn't happened to you, you absolutely will not understand it, so don't try - just be thankful that was never your dilemma. I've completely surrended ambition and ego now and I'm just plain glad to be here, and I'm very happy to be a committed Christian again.

I'm completely sober at this point of writing this, completely stable this is not another one of *those* episodes I used to have, I'm completely happy for others to see this. I'll just leave it on this note:

If you think The Devil is bad, wait until you see the dark side of the other one!

Seeing as others have been so forthcoming about this I will say a few words of my own. What started as a suspicion developed into a horrifying and full blown realisation. I've been diagnosed as Schizophrenic, since undiagnosed with it - so I know damn well the difference between metnal illness and a malicious attempt at posession. The only thing that shifted it was complete re-conversion to Christianity and begging for help from The Lord Jesus Christ. It's extremely hard to talk about this because arrogant assumptive people always want to mock you, or worse berrate you aggressively with rational thought and fact. I can't even begin to dsecribe how *extremely* unhelpful this is. You wouldn't brutally interrogate a child who'd been abused you'd give them chance to express it in their owns words slowly.

Suddenly everything in my life made sense. What I was being prepared for, how attractive I looked to these things, how dangerous the type of intellect I have is and the things I think about - which I can't help because I was born with them. The amount of symbology in my life is absolutely incredible when I look back at it. Numbers, dates, rare and symmetrical markings on my arms even my chosen username. It's very noteworthy that The Bible describes The Devil as an ancient Serpent. If you think this is nuts try walking that walk, then say that. All I can say is that since I openly embraced this truth I have become *more* mentally stable, not unstable. That for me is proof something very nasty was very much after me and the change in atmosphere in my life has been incredible. Most want hard facts, hard this hard that - well i would say to those arrogant people that these things are so clever they operate in areas very hard to describe so they can cover their tracks easily, even so well they can cover their tracks from their intended victim. In the end I could see what was happening so i turned to the book of Jude and savagely attacked my own ego which although it broke me, showed afterwards how horrible I was becoming inside, and guess what - that's when things began to change for the better. These things will target your weaknesses and if you have the courage to turn round and attack yourself and remove your emotional and mental flaws then they lose all their old avenues of attack. They can't gain a foothold in an emotionally healthy entity so to speak.

everytime i join a new fishing forum first thing i always search for are these storys, and this thread is the best of the lot.

but there are some real good storys on other boards that perhaps should be copy and pasted here so we go em all in one spot, believe me there are some real spooky ones out there.

ive fished one of the lakes mentioned in this thread, and it showed up in another very old thread on fishingwarehous forum(different story), but alas, i never saw anythin

keep em comin guys

If you want convincing, I'll tell you another true story.

When I was little my dads mum ( my gran)used to take me everywhere with her. Used to spoil me rotten much to my mums annoyance. To give you an idea of how much she spoilt me, she bought my brother 6 pairs of trousers for his birthday that'd fit me. Because my mum wouldn't let me wear them and put them up til they fitted my brother, she gave me a sovereign ring ( I was 4) lol.

Anyway, my mum and dad had just bought their 1st home and were decorating the lounge. I was in bed( still only 4 yrs old). I shared a room with my brother who was asleep. I used to sleep with my bedroom light on and the door open. I turned to the door to see my gran stood on the landing as real as you or me. Not see through. She had a long blue dress with like daisy flower print over it. She didn't say a word, just smiled at me. Then she just disappeared. Can still to this day remember it in detail. I got up and went downstairs to my mum and dad who were still decorating. I asked where granny had gone. My mum asked why. I said she was upstairs just a minute ago, to which my dad started crying.
Little did I know that she had died 3 days previously and they hadn't told me because they were worried how it would effect me. They then had to explain about death to me as I hadn't a clue about it beforehand.
There is definately something we know very little about. I've seen and had a few experiences over the years and recently had another but that's another story. And I'm a seeing is believing type of person, so I understand those that don't believe.
I think some people are more sensitive to these things than others. Most times the dead won't hurt you, it's the live ones you gotta watch

Funny you should mention a dizzy/weak feeling. I had a really bad spell and nearly collapsed fishing an old monastery stocked by monks for food a long long time ago. There were all sorts of stories and although I never 'experienced' anything I've never had that horrible feeling again..
I'm not the spiritual type but your story does make me wonder!

...the lake that Sam fished is /was one of two ....the other is at the top at the old Manor ,which has just been sold...

Simply this land has been owned by the same family for generations...

Sam i believe fished what i call `oaktree corner`... on the dam this swim is just to the left of the wooded area in which is the family crypt is situated [if your facing the lake like Sam was....

What Sam didnt know at the time was that owner Mr J.....was crushed to death on the A30 on a large tractor buy a huge articulated lorry.....It was`nt Mr J s` time ` to die and i reckon he was pretty fed up about it...and i remember he didnt like new faces on the land...[when he was alive]....






Here`s THE thing ....when i was a teenager and night fishing up by the manor house on the old estate lake...When Mr j was alive his favourite trick at night when he used to go out to check the sheep at lambing was to scrape his stick up n down the back of my canvas bivvy to let me know he was around..


But i didn`t have the heart to tell Sam this ......SO Sam now you know...........

Ads I'm sorry I didn't go into complete detail when I told you but it wasn't easy, especially with your wife and daughters there!
By all means tell them why, I'm not sure you have told me the full ins and outs of it either, but I did see the cript afterwards, the next day actually

So I get back into my bed and my mind is raceing with things like who can I fone to come and get me, only my mate pete knew I was fishing here and he didn't know where it was, plus he lives an hour away andwould never come out to get me.
For some reason at this point i got angry, grabbed my bank stick from under my bed and got out and shout some gibberish that I can't really remember, then got back in bed and prayed I hadn't over done it.
A minute later and I heard that terrifying sound of the fingernail once again, this time from right to left, then my brolly started quivering building up to firm shaking, I was petrified and said in a girly manner, no please don't, please don't
By this time I was feeling really drained, week and sick, I had cold sweets and I couldn't really see properly
A few seconds passed (felt like minutes) and it stopped.
That was the last thing that happend that night but I continued to feel unwell all night.
I didn't get any sleep and spent the whole night just staring out of my brolly and praying all would be ok.
I have never done a night there since

Well there we go, that's my story.

What made it so terrifying was how I felt, it was kind of like something was feeding off my energy.
I had very dark thoughts going through my head that I didn't feel came from my own mind, it was very strange and very very hard to explain.

Anyway, hope my displeasure has caused some of you some entertainment!

sam i had a similar thing happen to me

when i was in my 20's i used to help run a scout group and took 20 or so lads away for the week in a place called littledale, now just before we went my grandad was not well and was in hospital for a month but a week or so before we went away he died, this would mean myself and my brother, who was also a leader would have to return home mid week for his funeral

the week was going well and late one evening the tuesday myself and brother and another leader had got the lads of to there own tents well away from our main large canvas tent, we had not been drinking as we were incharge of the lads and a good distance from the main town,and had the whole place to ourselves for the week and spent a good hour chatting then got ready to bed down

we tied down the canvas doors at each end of the tent ( an old fashoned canvas woodenpoled icelandic which was 15 foot long and about 8foot wide and tall enough to fully stand up in ) the tie down is done in a loop to loop fashion and finished of with a half hitch or to around the pole not quick and not easy in a rush, we slept in a row, me our mate then my brother at the other end of the tent and other door,

all went as normal when at about 3AM i woke up aware that someone was moving around inside the tent, i was not scared and looked to the direction of the person and watched a figure with bright outline move from my right to the left then out of the tied down door, not alarmed i just turned over and went back to sleep.

morning came and the routine of camp took over, later that morning my mate asked me what time i went to the loo i said i didnt, he said thats funny i sware i saw you with your torch going to the door, wasnt me i said, but i saw it too and assumed the same one of you must of gone, but i opened the door this morning and it was as i had left it tied exactly the same!!!

that left my brother and he said he didnt see a thing and didnt go out to the loo??

Its still something we talk about when we all get together but,

it wasnt till many years later that my brother who was very close to my grandad told me the truth, he said he was visited by grandad both as we were camping that night ( the night before we were to to go home to the funeral) and while we stayed back at our parents house ,to the point where he had to turn on the light all night to get any sleep now he is not one to spin a yarn and not one to mess with peoples feelings, but there was something in that tent with us that night i would swear to this in court if i had to

its not the only strange unexplainable thing i have experianced but one that was not a true scare just a comforting strange feeling......... unlike others

So I'm sat there on my bedchair watcjing the water as always, when all of a sudden an imense amount of cold air surrounded me, this was strange as it wasn't windy atall.
I could see my breath in the cold air that I could not have seen minutes before.
This didn't bother me untill maybe 5 minutes later when I started to feel rather sick and a bit dizzy, I also felt like something was with me and it didn't feel good atall. It is hard to explain but I felt like I was being watched intensly at at close range, like something was sitting with me.
I got up and had a walk around the bivvy and I felt quite week so I got in my sleeping bag and hoped whatever was happening would stop soon.
What I was experienceing seemed to fade over the next hour or so but soon came back as I was lying in my bag.
I started feeling dizzy again and minutes later I heard what sounded like a finger nail scraping across the back of my brolly from left to right in a slow speed, I don't mind saying I was ****ing myself by now and was really scared.
I got out and had a look behind my brolly, there was nothing there and no trees or anything else that could have scraped my brolly. Nothing could explain it, trust me I tried to think logically but there was just no explaining it.
I got back in bed and was smoking like a trooper, praying my alrams wouldn't go off so I didn't have to get out.
I didn't have a front with me so was open to the dark misty lake, I could barley see my night lights on my delks it was that misty now, what happens next? My rod springs into life that's what, I hit into it, completly bricking it, but for some reason the ill feeling kind of went a bit, I played the carp in (not bullied it) unhooked it and wound the remaining rods in so I didn't have to get out of the cover of my brolly again, as I had just finish winding the last rod it the feeling comes back, really strong this time and If I could have run away into the nighjt then I would have but I felt far to drained.
I climed back into bed and started wondering how bad this was going to get and to be honist I was expecting something really bad to happen, I just coulnt see myself making it through.

Ok so here we go,

As Adam has previously mentioned, he sugested I had a little dabble on this water, it was/is a beautifull place in a remote part of cornwall. The main reason for wanting to fish there was because it was so beautifull, the stock wasn't all that apealing to me if I'm honist (sorry Adam, but you know why) I had already done a quick day session there to get a feel for the place and had one out so obviously the next step was to do a night.
I had visited the lake several times at night on the run up to my first night there, its something I always like to do to get some bait going in and I love watching the water for signs on the few days before I fish, over the few weeks I was reccying the place I noticed it was always quite dark at night, mainly due to it being surrounded by very tall trees and thick woodland, not a problem but I does make baiting up a touch tricky.
The night of my first night was very close to the new moon, about 4% full from memory and as a result it was darker than normal.
I flicked my rods out, poped my brolly up and poped the kettle on and had my first brew of the night.
Soon enough night time fell and with the darkness came an incredible amount of mist, I love misty lakes and find it a lovely sight, problem was that it was so dark and misty I couldn't see any further than a few feet infront of me.
Now I do a lot of nights, 2 or 3 a week usualy so I am no stranger to darkness and needless to say doing nights on my own never bothers me.
The thing that was so disturbing about the experience is not what happend but how I felt, as it something had some kind of control over me.
Anyway, I will continue on my next post,

Pete if you really want me to then I shall, it isn't the freekiest story on here but I wouldn't wish it on anyone.

If I am honest Adam, you got a watered down version as I didn't want to sound like a complete nut job!
Maybe they like you there and that's why you hanvt experienced anything.

I will start by mentioning that I had a possible ghost experience when I was a boy, maybe 12 or so.
We used to live in a very old house in the cotswolds (not as upmarket as it sounds) there was 3 floors and I had my room right up the top on my own.
I have always been a deep sleeper and rarely wake up in the night, but one night I woke up and as I opened my eyes I saw a girl stood in front of me, she looked about ten so a little younger than me, wearing a long sleeveless dress and she stood very prim and proper.
I didn't panic and the atmosphere was really relaxed but I was obviously rather surprised, she was just staring at me
And all I could say was- what are you doing? With that she smiled at me and faded away.
As I said I wasn't scared or anything so I just went back to sleep, never experienced it again.
Now as this happened in the middle of my nights sleep, I reckon it was possible that it was a kind of dream type thing even though I sat up as soon as I saw here maybe my brain could have carried on dreaming? (Not good with words so its hard to explain what I mean)

Anyway, I have gone off subject, will tell you one of my experiences in my next post

Not Fishing related but here goes....
My dad told me this.
Back in the late 60s early 70s my dad worked in a royal naval building that dated back to the 1800s.
Him and a colleague were given the job of rewiring and renewing light fittings on a old stone spiral staircase after office hours and at the weekend when no one was around.
Whilst working away and chatting my dad said you could feel it getting colder and colder,at first they put it down to a door or window being left open and carried on.They didnt think much of it as it was Feb/March so not exactly warm,However he then said when you talked you could then see your breath,the temperature was dropping rapidly.
My dad thinking sod this went down the stairs to see if a door or window had been left open,as he went down he said he felt warmer and could no longer see his breath,no doors or windows were open.
He went back up and they continued working.
At the top of the stairs was a corridor that led off to offices but the staircase continued up to the roof area where the loft space was used by the sea cadets for their training.
Whilst working away he said both he and his colleague could hear footsteps comming down the staircase,they called up but got no reply,carried on working.
They then heard more foot steps,thing was the steps were stone but whatever was comming down the steps sounded like it was treading on wood and shuffling,they called up again and again got no reply.
The temperature was now very cold,the wooden footsteps must have been litterally just round the bend of the spiral from them,my dad shot up but there was nothing and no one there.
They finished the job and put it down to one of those things.
A while later they were working in the plant rooms in the basement when another fitter said that hed experienced the same thing working down there,temperature drop and shuffling footsteps,wooden sounding steps on stone.
They asked a curator about the building,it transpired it had been built by Napeolionic prisoners of war who were manacled together and were forced to wear CLOGGS,they were billited up stairs in the rafters/loft space and were only allowed to use the spiral staircase to get to and fro as the rest of the building was occupied by officer class types.

...I will have a chat...

Sams a good man..reckon he feels people on the forum will extract the urine ,but im sure they wont Pete..

I know the story and he was pretty shook up to be honest he even came round to relay his experience to me....as a result he only fished this place once or twice....

See he`s not the only one who has `felt`experienced at this place,my other mate has and he only fished it the once at night on his own.....

Normally im the 1st person to feel summat.....but not on this lake ,dunno why.....


BUT i do know why Sam and Paul felt what they did at seperate times......you see i knew `him`[before his passing] over 31yrs and got on well/respected his land....

...Not far from where i lived at the time ....in a large detatched house lived the old `oberseer`..[spelling]..before the National Trust bought the village,in a nutshell back in the 1940s and 50s this little old lady was in charge of the land and property..and at the time weilded a lot of power....

She came from one of the oldest familys around and spoke Cornish fluently..at well under 5ft tall ,she always had this little jack russell dog buy her side...my German Sheppard was petrified of this small dog i remember..

My initial feeling towards her was fear....one day i was on my way back from trout fishing in the river and i met the old lady...and we conversed for a while....it went something like this...

Adam,she said looking through me with these piercing eyes...`Every now and again the devil rides over the village`......remembering a incident in the 50s when the school master was taken by the river...and she walked off..!!!!!!

Not that many years ago the Devil did indeed ride over ,as the river destroyed the lower part of the village....along with many cars and business/propertys...that fateful day..

I rememberd what Miss`o` told me ...it turned out that she had been warning everyone for years,she was one of the `good ones`if you follow me..

If you go down there [the village]this very day,as soon you enter through the woods.....`the door WILL shut behind ee`.....

My last members lake located in Wolverhampton was as bad as it gets.. the gates into the venue was opposite a gypsies camp.. And just some of stuff throw over the fence included a dead dog , gun,& drugs. once a week the local helicopter would shine a spot lamp on the water so head lamps would not be needed..

I was fishing on a place called highbridge on the Eastleigh& district club book when they used to have it. It was autumn time and I was fishing on weighbridge point on my own. It was around 1ish in the morning and I was fast asleep. The next thing I know is I've got these hands gripped tightly around my neck. I've woke up but there's nothing there but I could still feel these hands around my neck. I honestly thought that was going to be my lot. All of a sudden the grip released and whatever it was was gone. I sat wondering wtf had happened. I stayed but funnily didn't go back to sleep. Never really been able to explain what happened.

The other time something strange happened I was fishing at rooksbury park. People who know the lake will know there's only one way in or out. It's completely surrounded by trees and swamp ish ground. I was fishing by the entrance, the 1st swim you come to. It was around 5.30-6am in the morning and light because it was summertime. Whilst having a brew I saw a guy around the opposite side walking along the bank.
Well I knew I was the only one fishing and wondered how he had got to where he was without my noticing. He had to walk past me to get in after all ! I watched him to see where he was going, he passed behind some trees on the opposite right hand corner swim but didn't come out the other side. I never thought much about it til one of the locals, roger brame, came down around 9ish that morning. He asked who else was down. I said I thought it was just me but there may be someone round the other side as I'd seen them but didn't see them come in, even though I was up. Roger then told me I'd seen old, cant remember the name, who had died whilst fishing that swim and is often seen over there!
