Fishermens' tale of seal: it's Serge, not Sammy...

A pair of anglers who competed with a seal for fish on the Nene yesterday are convinced it wasn't 'Sammy'.

I revealed HERE last week that a seal spotted basking on the Nene was not 'Sammy' who made a name for himself (or herself) with entertaining antics last summer.

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph are taking their seal stories rather seriously...and report this gem from one of the hapless anglers:

'He had no markings on him, but I am convinced it was not Sammy. It would be too much of a coincidence for the same seal to make its way up the river...'

They've named the new seal 'Serge'.

I notice that one of the fishermen is called Mr Waterman.

Very fishy...

So Serge works on the Nene.

This is the only surge I support.
