It ain’t pretty for sure

A couple of nice days of sunshine and I was thinking it’s nearly time for a dip in the sea…..and then I watched Jeremy Wades River Monsters last night and saw something I’d heard about from a guy I knew who moved to Hastings and claimed to have been nipped by one just outside Dover Harbour

Sea Lamprey….what a little beauty this bad boy is. Cross between an alien and and eel, sucks itself onto you then bores in with a sort of rasping, rotating tongue.

Probably best not to watch anymore fishing programmes on TV before we do the swim!!
