Not spooky scary, just damned scary!

A few years back I was fishing a big, deserted pit in the middle of nowhere which happens to be near Heathrow and under the flight path. This was around the time when those terrorist attacks were happening.

I was alone and crashed out in the bivvy having had a good few stellas and 'smokes'. Around 2am, I slowly came round from my slumber to the sound of someone speaking to me, it all became clearer and I could hear 'wake up, wake up, dont be scared'. My eyes slowly focused on a darkly dressed figure standing in my doorway until I could make out a bloody great Hechler and Koch MP5 gun pointing at me. 'Don't be scared, it's the police' says this figure. 'What are you doing out here?' he says!!

I stumble out of my bivvy and point at the rods saying something along the lines of 'what the bloody hell does it look like'. 'I'm PC such and such and this is PC someone else' he says, pointing behind the bivvy to his equally fully armed colleague aiming at me from behind!!

After I had calmed down he explained they were on a nose about around the local lakes as they are potential sites for shooting down aircraft apparently. I tried asking 'do I look like a terrorist' to be informed they take many disguises although I don't think they go to the lengths of disguising themselves as drunk carp anglers trying to have a sleep!!

After a search of my bivvy and car and insisting on seeing ID, off they went leaving me thinking 'did that really just happen?!!

Ok here goes...

A friend of the family owned a very large georgian mansion which had been in their family for years. The owner didn't have very much money and found it hard to maintain the place but refused to sell up considering how long it had been in his family for. It was creepy to look at, originally white but very over grown with ivy, he only occupied the first floor.

The grounds were huge with a very large lake filled with some very big carp and tench. He allowed me to fish it pretty much when I wanted in the day but was always uncomfortable when I asked if I could do a night session. After much pestering he finally agreed but for some reason said under no circumstance should I set up on the the south side of the lake. At the time I didn't really think much of it as I was rather excited about the prospect of finally being able to finally get a ngith session.

It was mid april, I had taken the week off work and the weather had been fantastic.. I arrived at the house around 12pm and knocked on the door. My friend answered the door and let me in. I had a cup of tea and started to talk about how I was going to fish the lake that night. He seemed distant and again said about under no cricumstance should I set up on the south side of the lake. I asked why and he paused before mumbling about how he was having some of the trees cut back but didn't know when and how I would be in the way. Again I just went along with it although.

I set up on the north side and settled in for the night. I had a run at 11 and landed a nice 14lb mirror. I put the fish back and baited up, it was dark, totally overcast and cold. As I cast out and my line hit the clip I heard a loud high pitched noise from the oposite side of the lake. It stopped and my ears kind of popped and I could hear ringing. I have a 2million candle power torch which I grabbed and shone across the lake. The lake was steaming, I scanned the beam along the bank but didn't see anything.. I switched off the torch, the beam faded, and I climbed inside my bivvy.

I was drifting in and out of sleep to the sound of the trees gently blowing in the wind. My alarm bleeped once and I sat bolt upright in bed. I watched my alarm LED light go out, the cloud had lifted and the moon lit up the lake. I remember thinking how awesome it looked and lay back in bed thinking there wasn't anywhere I would rather be at that point in time. "CRACK". What the hell was that? I sat up, silence "CRACK". I got out of my bivvy and looked across the lake, couldn't see anything. I stood there listening, nothing. I then heard a very feint voice. The voice was distressed, crying mixed in with what sounded like "no no can't no, not so". I grabbed my torch and shone it across the lake, my eyes widened and mouth opened as I saw a figure stumbling near to the bank. I quickly shut off the torch and then started to **** myself like I have never **** myself before. What seemed like an age passed as I decided what to do. I turned the torch back on and pointed it back across the lake, my breath was being pieced by the light shaft, I couldn't see anything,

I stood there for ages, before I plucked up the courage to shout out "Hey", "are you ok?". Nothing. "HELLOOOOOO". Nothing. I turned off the torch and was shaking. I went back to my bivvy and got into bed before pulling the covers right up over my head. The invincible force of my sleeping bag would protect me. I was curled up in a ball thinking what the hell should I do? Should I go to the house? Should I go and look on the other side of the bank? The house was little under a kilometre away, I couldn't see the house from where I was located. I got out of my bivvy and decided to go to the house. I reeled in and then started to walk around the lake to the east side. My walk started to quicken before I was doing one of those mad panic runs. I got to the landscaped meddow/lawn which allowed me to see the house. I was still running and noticed some of the lights were on in the upper part of the house. I made it to the door and hammered on it. My friend answered after a while and without saying anything he said "you better come in".

I was bent over double, so out of breath. I managed to form a sentence between breaths and told him what I had seen. He didn't seem phased he said lets talk about this in the morning. The next day I awoke to the smell of bacon and egg. I dragged myself off the floor and went into the kitchen. I ate some food in silence. He then put a book in front of me. It was a scrap book with a load of paper cuttings, pictures etc about the house collected over the years. He told me to look at page 28. The first thing I saw was "INFANT FOUND" in a big typeface, I read on and learned how in 1856 a infant of 3 had disapeared, and was later found in the lake by the mother.

Brilliant

the platform through the woodland sounds familiar. Soooooooo many dodgy tales about that place, human sacrefices, voodooo **** etc.

Rich, if you think it's the lake I think you think it is , Mr Bumps reference to the park police coming round at 6am suggests otherwise. Although I agree it sounds familiar.

They come round at the crack of 10am on that lake!! Easy guesting

One of the mereís in Shropshire spooked the hell out of me once. I had fished this swim many time and never had any problems or heard anything untoward..

To get into the swim involved two hikes in chesties with gear (on your head) through sludge/silt and basically a bog of stinking crap. Huge bramble bushes and trees surround the place and it is well away from any public pathways.

I only had the brolly with me (guesting time) and a bed chair + essentials.
I was fast asleep at around 8pm only to be woken startled at midnight with the sound of branches snapping behind me (real loud cracks) there were bushes rustling as if something big was running towards me so immediately I was wide awake with my heart pumping.
Knowing I had these two boggy areas between me and the pathway I got out to look, well I peaked round the side but as soon as I stood up the noise stopped and it was back to the deadly silence that we usually get down there.

A little worried what the noises were I finally dosed off an hour or so later and forgot all about it all until 2 am, you know when you get the feeling that your brolly is about to be blown over and you reach up to stop it flying back?
Well I woke up and raised my hands as I felt the brolly going but I was too late and missed only to be clattered in the head and leg as the bank sticks hit the front of the bed chair before the whole lot landed some 20yards away behind me.
Now I am seriously wide awake and stood up just looking at the state of the place at the same time as crapping myself and looking all around me.
There was not a breath of wind and no sound of the culprit which shifted the brolly.

It got me thinking for all of 2 minutes. Could it be another angler trying to put me off?
No animal could pull a brolly of that size over.
I sure didnít knock it 20+ yards behind me so what the heck was it?
I didnít think about it any longer 2 minutes was enough as by now I was seriously scared and just wanted away from the place. I just grabbed the two rods/ buzzers and left everything else there and fled back to the car and of home.
I returned around 11am that day with a mate to collect the gear and hide it elsewhere. Only footprints in and out of the bog were mine. No branches were broke in or behind the swim so even to this day I still have not got a clue what it I sure as hell wont be fishing the swim again.

me being about 13 and my mate 14 at the time we where ****ing are self so desided to go home.the next day we walked down to the lake and had a look round in the woods where we had seen the lights.there was a sheet lay on the floor with candles on it a packet of sweet a hair brush and a package in the midle of it.it was brown and tighed up with string.it had a banna sticking out the side of it.we thought thats weird so opened it up.there was a leter in there wich looked like a lady had wrote.it was wrote in ritual tipe style going on about how she was heart broken and was going to kill her husband

i think it was the first trip to ddi with my mate speedy in peg 14/15.it was about 2or 3 in the morning after a pleasant evening on the beer we decided to turn in.(our own bivvies)b4 u start
i was rolling a good night fag .when out of the bushes,not more than 10 feet away was the weirdest fecking sound iv heard,
now i watch nature programmes and normally arent alarmed by any animal or noise it makes,but this sound put the *****s up me,i can only describe it as a fecking large cat hissing
armed with my arsenal bat i sat on my bed like a little girl,grabbed the walkie talkie and convinced my mate to come and have a look to see if we could locate the source.
to his disgust i was still zipped up in the bivvi when he got to me and didnt undo the door til i heard the footsteps outside,i did give it a few seconds just incase whatever was out felt a bit peckish,,,well iv got a daughter to think about
we had a look about but found nothing,in the process creating enough noise to wake the dead(or to frighten it off)mark took the piss and we smoked the fag together,quickly followed by several more.
in the morning i shared my experience with bernard and he also took the piss saying it was just a wild bore,but with my knowledge of animals,that was no fecking sound a bore makes let me tell you,
needless to say i was well armed every night after and accidently left small chunks of meat by my mates bivvi without him knowing
