Ahhh now you are leaving one key elemnt out of the story here Ray and that is which Westons you were drinking...?

If it was the Vintage at 500ml and 8.2% then I neither would have had a clue if I had finished the 4th bottle off or not....

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.

F***** weird that one mate, would make me not want to fish that again just because of the sheer weirdness of it, that someone is just watching you and waiting for you to go, crazy.

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 !!!!!!
