was contacted today with this sighting of the Lake Bala Creature:
I have been prompted today to write this comment after reading
yet another story about the Loch Ness Monster, but let me tell you about
my experience whilst diving in Bala many years ago.
For the record I,m a 68 year old retired person, who has seen this creature under the water, whilst diving there in 1975.
team of us had dived the previous week in the lake, but due to the
visibility at that time which was poor, we decided to return the
following week with our families.
But this time we were better equipped with torches.
I recall there was about 9 of us in the team, we headed in from the
shale shore on the backside of the lake on the opposite side to the
town. After 30 foot out and 30 down, it blacks out, so we lined up
holding onto each others back packs which held the tanks.
descended it got darker, I was second in the team with the leader
holding one of the two torches. At 98 feet I suddenly saw a browny grey
flank of something very large go through the beam. I normally describe
it as the size of the back of an office swivel chair, but the curvature
of it was much bigger.
I never seen the head, and I never stayed
around to see the tail of this very long creature, which was very very
long. As it seemed to keep going through the beam for a long time.
shock I broke off the line and made my way to the top, when the rest of
the lads came up shortly after, each said that they had seen something,
but could not define exactly what it was.
Scofields Quest was on TV talking about the "monster", I called the show
producers and told them of my experience, this was some years later.
They ask for any information to be sent in, whichI did.
following week on tv, my experience was quoted, they also read out the
entries in my Divers Log Book, which had the incident logged. Also in
the log book it had the dated entries, which showed all of the dive
dates both before and after, prooving it was a genuine entry.
Shortly after a Japanese tv show spoke with me in regards the experience !
Apparently at that time also, the Lake Manager had also reported that he had seen it himself.
Its without doubt that there is something very very large in that lake.Wheather it there now,I do not know.
is good about this story, is that it happened many years ago, but it
can be proven, because it was a featured story on Scofields Quest !!
Can I say "the plot thickens"
