Trout fishermen at a Kent reservoir were fearful after the peckish predator swam across to them in the hopes of snagging fresh trout left in the water.


The snake lies in wait as it plots to grab a delicious fish meal


In a video the crafty creature can be seen patiently lying in wait for the fisherman to hook the fresh fish meal. The sneaky serpent then sat on top of the fish as it laid claim to the catch in the Bewl Water reservoir near Lamberhurst.


The fishermen were panicked when they realised they had an unwelcome guest watching their every move


Fisherman Keith Perry, from Sidcup, said: “At first the snake made me jump as it swam over quite quickly and then seemed to be guarding my fish as though they were his.” Undeterred the snake continued to inspect the fish and swam around his new best friends as they fished.
