I grew up in rural NWPA, surrounded in forest. I took an early interest in cryprozoology and sharks and have read many books on various crypto subjects such as Bigfoot and Megalodon over the years. I am not a professional writer or a journalist, but I do the best I can. I have a quirky, obscurely dry and sometimes sarcastic sense of humor than can get me in trouble. Some love me and some hate me, but I am who I am.

As recent as last year people were saying that Nessie was gone. That she had died or had found a tunnel that led out to sea. In fact, several theories were tabled to explain the vast lapse in sightings.

Well, it would seem that Nessie’s demise was greatly exaggerated or at least inconclusive. Apparently the favorite Cryptid among many believers may be alive and well and living in the Loch….as always.

If you hadn’t guessed already, there has been a sighting. A commercial fish farmer, Jon Rowe, from Lewiston in Drumnadrochit has allegedly sighted the great fish…beast…Err, fish beast. OK, it’s not a fish at all but you have to allow me a little leeway whilst cracking wise.

Mr. Rowe had procured his camera to snap a photo of a rainbow in the early morning hours when he noticed two distinct humps in the waters of the Loch. He knew instantly that he was gazing upon the legendary creature and exclaimed: “That’s Nessie!”

The quick thinking fisherman snapped off some very clear photos of what he saw to prove his conquest and is now reporting it to the world.

It’s been said before and it’s being said again .. Nessie is alive under the waves of Loch Ness.

Once more the notoriously shy Loch Ness monster has been reportedly sighted in Scotland’s deepest loch. This time close to a commercial fish farm.

Jon Rowe, from nearby Lewiston in Drumnadrochit, took the eerie snaps moments before the mysterious shape slipped beneath the water.

And the stunned fish farmer is convinced that the shapes he saw in the morning light are Nessie.

He said: ‘It was a very strange morning. It was misty with a bit of rain and sunny at the same time.

‘There was a rainbow so I got my camera out to take a photo and noticed this really large dark shape in the loch with two humps that were barely out of the water.

‘My instant reaction was “That’s Nessie”.’

Mr Rowe has dismissed claims that the shapes he saw in the water were not the legendary beast of the deep said to stalk the atmospheric Highland loch.

He added: ‘I have no doubt, I work on the loch everyday and I’ve never seen anything like it.

‘Almost as soon as I took the shot the shape disappeared under the water and out of sight.

The 31-year-old told how he had not believed that a monster swam the depths of Loch Ness until he captured Nessie on film.

‘It can’t have been a buoy or a mooring as it’s in the wrong place and the ropes would be visible in the water.

‘A few people have said it was birds diving under the water – but I didn’t see any birds fly by. It can’t have been birds – the whole thing went down into the loch.

‘It was quite spooky but I think it’s really interesting.’

The legend of the Loch Ness Monster began in 1933 when its ‘existence’ was first brought to the world’s attention by George Spicer and his wife. They said they saw an unusual animal cross the road in front of them.

Countless subsequent searches of the loch over the years using sonar and other high tech approaches have failed to prove that the monster exists and lives in the loch.

The most frequent speculation surrounding the mythical creature states that it could be from a line of long-surviving plesiosaurs, though this has never been proved.

As a result the Loch Ness Monster remains a modern-day myth and sightings are often dismissed by the scientific community as wishful thinking.

    Cool your cha-chas JoeMomma. I would never post a comment without doing a little investigating first. If you Google (or whatever search engine you prefer) seals in Loch Ness, you will see an article and photographic proof of seals in the Loch. It wasn’t my intent to cause you such irritation. I don’t want to be responsible for anyone’s blood pressure issues, so I should probably just keep my opinions to myself.

  • Lisa,

    Never keep your opinions to yourself. Do you know what happens when opinions get backed up? You could explode and then we’d have to charge Joe with second degree murder, unless of course he planned to get your opinions backed up, then it’s murder one!

    Listen, you have a right to an opinion just like everyone else. Don’t ever feel like you shouldn’t make your voice known.

    Besides, you burned Joe big time on that one, LOL!

  • Lisa

    Murder….LOL! Thanks for the pep-talk Scott 🙂 Man, you’re good.

  • Shroomie

    I’m just glad there’s an article up that doesn’t have to do with UFOs or some form of Bigfoot. 🙂

  • Me too! Who keeps posting those UFO and Bigfoot stories anyway?

    Oops! Nevermind……

  • I love the fact that Nessie hasn’t died yet. Does anyone know how long plesiosaurs are supposed to live for anyway? And what is Nessie supposed to eat anyway? So many questions about something that probably isn’t real. But the speculation is half the fun.
