Nessletter No.164 Now Published

 
Rip Hepple, veteran Loch Ness Monster expert, has published the latest issue of his long running Loch Ness newsletter, "Nessletter" (dated February 2018). The main focus of his newsletter this issue is the search for Nessie DNA, though the story he tells of the mysterious yellow water of Loch Ness is worth the price of the issue alone!
 
If you wish to find out more, the subscription rates are: £5 (UK) or $10 (USA) for 12 issues which are published intermittently, not monthly. Send your payment and address details to:

I would point out that an archive of Rip's older newsletters can be found here on Google Drive. Rip's newsletter has been running now for nearly forty five years and has been a valuable source of information and analysis throughout those years. I continue to look forward to his wisdom and analysis.

  4. Im amazed he is still doing the Newsletters, good on him. Talking of news has anyone seen the latest strange animal dubbed nessie found washed up in Georgia, reported by the Daily Mail? strange looking thing.It does resemble the description of nessie sightings.

    1. Looked only a couple of foot long to me.

    2. As someone who was a model making stop motion animator to me it looks suspiciously like models I used to build. The giveaway is that the "flipper", "guts" and "tail" all look like quite different substances. Also there are no flippers on the other side. And why's there only one photo - not 1000s? No video footage either. Plus no one thought to pick it up for examination? It's a fake. And a lazy one.

  5. The part i saw was a video Kyle, not a long one though. And i think there is a flipper on the other side its just not clearly visible. It could be a fake though.

  6. I would say about 4ft. Yes it could be a model like Kyle says but i disagree if it is that its a poor effort because i think it is rather a good effort myself, and even some leading scientists are scratching their heads.

    1. Okay Gezza sorry man I wasn't trying to be arrogant! It IS a decent effort. It's just my first degree was in animation (stop frame) and I built a lot of models. And I've been involved in a fair chunk of SFX design and there are a few tell tale signs. And I apologise I had no idea there was a video. That actually adds a lot of veracity.

      Yet still, to me it looks like a purpose built model, not a living (or dead) creature. And why oh why was it not scooped up?

  7. Your probably right Kyle but compared to some hoaxes ive seen over the years its not a bad effort. It does look like a model though when zoomed up. If its a hoax though surely the man who saw and filmed it must be in on it too because he said birds had pecked at it leaving the insides hanging out which wouldnt be the case if it was a model. And i didnt think you were arrogant Kyle, everyone has different opinions.Thats why i enjoy this blog.

  8. Its nothing we know of for me! So its a tullimunstrem!! But is it a real tullimunstrem or a model one?? If its a model one then the lad who filmed it must be in on the joke cus he says that seagulls wer feeding off it! So all depends on his honesty defo! If its real then its something new cus its not rotted enuf for it to be a shark thats rotted into a difffrent shape and its not a frilled shark or lamprey as suggested..nothing like them !! I agree if its a joke its a gud one lol. No more news on it apart from its vanished from the spot...im not sure if a creature washed up cud be carried out to sea again then sink?? Maybe sumone can lighten me on this possibility..if not it points to a big joke! A subject to talk about though and all gud fun.....Roy
