It's 25 years, almost to the day, since the first photograph of the Fishman - a humanoid-type creature purportedly wallowing in the wild rivers south-east of Canberra - was captured on 35-millimetre film during a university field trip. Although defying science, the Fishman quickly become entrenched in our folklore, gaining notoriety alongside the other mystery creatures like the bunyip, the black panther and heaven-forbid, even the yowie.

But does the Fishman really exist? In a quest to uncover the real story behind the Fishman, earlier in the week I joined John Reid, the creature's discoverer and self-confessed champion on an expedition into one of its suspected hideouts - the Deua National Park, around 100 kilometres south-east of Canberra.

If that first photo is supposed to depict the human like thing, I don't see it.  Unless they mean that smudge in the water, which looks nothing human shaped.

Yeah, I'm not seeing it either.  It looks like somebody took a photo of a light colored boulder or clay bed and then messed with it in photoshop.

Blur? *check*  ...Fishman is well on his way to a cryptid.

The last two photos and captions are hysterical, I wonder if they were meant to be.

Bigfoot is definitely in the eye of the beholder!
