Ever since 2006, when the first report emerged from England's biggest lake of a 20-foot-long creature in Lake Windermere, a new lake monster legend has gained strength on the sightings of something dubbed "Bow-Nessie."
Lake Windermere, located in the northern part of England, is a popular holiday and summer home destination and is bordered by two towns, Ambleside and Bowness-on-Windermere -- hence the clever monster nickname, Bow-Nessie.
Some suggest its name comes from the bow-like wave it has been reported making as it glides through the water.
One witness, hotel owner Thomas Noblett, said he had a very close encounter with Bow-Nessie. "All of a sudden, I felt something brush past my legs like a giant fish. And then I was lifted up by a 3-foot wave. I've no idea what it was."
As a new legend is born, it probably won't hurt local tourism, either -- Bow-Nessie T-shirts can't be too far away.
