â€˘George Edwards has hunted Nessie for 26 years and holds tours of the Loch
â€˘He even says image was verified by team of US military monster experts
â€˘A Nessie sighting specialist has backed his claims, adding: ‘It proves Nessie is definitely NOT a sturgeon’
He has dedicated more than two decades of his life to the hunt for the elusive Loch Ness monster, spending 60 hours a week on the water.
And now George Edwards believes he has finally fulfilled his ambition of spotting ‘Nessie’; he even photographic evidence to prove it.
Mr Edwards, who has spent 26 years on his quest, managed to capture this image of a dark hump slinking in and out of the lake’s waters from the deck of his boat, Nessie Hunter, before it vanished back into the deep.
He claims the picture is the best-ever taken of the Loch Ness Monster and proves once and for all that the elusive leviathan exists – and is definitely not a sturgeon.
He says he has even had it independently verified by a team of US military monster experts as well as a Nessie sighting specialist.
Mr Edwards spends his life on the loch – around 60 hours a week – taking tourists out on his boat Nessie Hunter IV, and has led numerous Nessie hunts over the years.
‘I was just about to return to Temple Pier (in Drumnadrochit) and I went to the back of the boat which was facing the pier and thatâ€™s when I saw it,’ said 60-year-old Mr Edwards, a lifelong believer in the monster.
‘It was slowly moving up the loch towards Urquhart Castle and it was a dark grey colour. It was quite a fair way from the boat, probably about half a mile away but itâ€™s difficult to tell in water.’
After watching the object for five to ten minutes, Mr Edwards said it slowly sank below the surface and never resurfaced.
‘Iâ€™m convinced I was seeing Nessie as I believe in these creatures. Far too many people have being seeing them for far too long,’ he said.

Nahuelito, Nessie’s Latin Cousin Takes a Better Photo?
However convincing this photo is, it is not as good or clear as is the photo of Nahuelito that appeared in the Matutinal Rionegrino of Cordillerano, an Argentinian newspaper in January, 2009. Like Nessie, Nahuelito is a lake monster that has been seen for many, many years by hundreds of witnesses although its actual existence as a “monster” is still in doubt.
From the 2009 article, translated from Spanish:
Is this â€ś The Nahuelito â€ť?
A man sent this photograph to a newspaper in Bariloche and sowed again some doubt about the real existence of this â€śmythicalâ€ť animal. This time, the image was captured on Lake Mascardi.
The images published yesterday in the Matutinal Rionegrino of Cordillerano show an animal similar to a snake that appears on the surface of the water.
â€ś I was thinking that they were otters, when I saw it rotating below the surface of the water, but when it began to show itself again I taken by surprise. It looked a little like a creature that I had seen earlier, and we were afraid of it when it reappeared, reported the reader who sent the photograph in to the newspaper.
