fishin from a beach , an object out on the water had a large light no sound repelling lead weights

As someone who does not really believe in UFOs, I relay this story.

In 1985 we went to county Kerry Ireland on a holiday we stayed in a place called Glenbeigh. Their were three familys, myself and two of my freinds all lovers of beach fishing.

I will explain that my two friends both in their forties were sensible, ordinary family men, not into making up stories. we usually went fishing together, but on this night we were going to meet on the beach at different times, one of my freinds Bob was the first to leave, a bit later the second friend John left

we were all going to meet on the beach,a beach usually pitch black at night. I was the last go to the beach. I drove on to the beach hoping to find Bob and John but I was unable to find them, so I left to go back to my caravan on the way back up the beach I came across Bobs car high up on a sand dune but Bob was no where to be seen.When I got back I found Bob at the caravan site looking pale and shaking,He said he was fishing on the beach when he saw a light out on the water, said at that point he was not really concerned, as he was fishing he noticed the light getting closer to the beach but up from him, This light which he described as like a light from a helicopter travelling just above the water but no sound,the light eventually came closer to him, again it was out from him, but within casting distance.He said he was not too concerned, had not got a clue what it was but carried on fishing anyway.He said he started to get scared when as he tried to cast his line out, it the fishing line kept dropping at his feet, his line would consist of one large hook and a lead weight. He tried casting several times but with the same result, feeling a bit nervous at this point he started to panic when the light started to come towards him, he jumped in his car and drove away as fast as he could, thats how he ended up in the sand dunes, when my other friend john returned a short time later he relayed a similar story. They were fishing seperataly as they could not find each other in the dark. Does this mean it was a UFO I dont know, but whatever energy was coming from the light source was repelling lead weights. Not wanting to look foolish they made discreet enquirys with the locals asking such questions as ,has anyone ever noticed anything strange on the beach late at night. But apart from telling them that their was a lot of spanish Galleons wrecked on the cliffs, and people sometimes say they can hear the screams of the dying. But that of course is just local folklore.It has facinated me to this day and I am so disappointed I missed out on that experience, of course I would have been just os scared as my friends were.

I was just curious to know has anything similar ever happened to anyone else?
