‘Walking’ fish baffles bystanders in Bideford

Fishermen shocked to see fish appear to ‘walk’ out of River Torridge before slithering back into water.
An encounter of the fishy kind has baffled a Bideford angler after he watched a strange sea creature emerge from the River Torridge.

The strange fish spotted in the Torridge. PIicture: Robert Harrowet.The fish emerged onto mud by Bideford’s Bank End car park and was spotted by Robert Harrowet and his friends Rob and Chris.

“It came out of the water and tried to walk on its fins. It had the tail of a conger eel and the head of a pike and was trying to pick something up with its mouth,” said Robert.

“I’m a keen fisherman myself – sea fishing and freshwater – and I’ve never seen anything like it.”
