Angler Wayne Foulkes was fishing at Ponciau Pool on May 9 when he landed one of the biggest carp in the water.
He was so pleased with his catch that he took a picture of the proud moment with the fish.
But when he looked back at the image he was shocked to see the appearance of a ‘face’ in an orange glow in the dark watery background.
Fisherman and villagers in Ponciau are at a loss as to how the face, which resembles a ghoulish orange goblin peeking over Mr Foulkes’ left shoulder, came to be there.
But Mr Foulkes said many believe it really could be a spirit.
The 34-year-old said: ”It’s pretty scary isn’t it?
“There’s some history to the pool, a couple of people have passed away there, and its only adds to the story – people really believe it’s a spirit.”
