I always consider it money wasted if I am not asked for my licence during a season, might as well have not purchased one in the first place.

I got checked on the Lower Severn in February, via boat. I do like this boat idea, they can cover miles and miles or river, probably catch more who haven't got licences also.

Do the bailiffs ask for details whilst still in the boat? They have there electronic checkers so could punch in the data and query your details. If so, it makes it safer for them too....a speedy getaway!

If you didn't purchase a rod license, would you be able to fish comfortably? Every voice and noise could be that one time you got caught. Then imagine the Sympathy that would be indulged from the BFW members. Anyway purchased mine 3 months ago. Always remember the 5P's.

I have had mine checked twice. Once at Farmoor reservoir and once by a policeman! Many years ago I had done an overnighter and was leaving a club carpark very early in the morning. It was soon very obvious that I was being tailed by a police car that eventually pulled me over. I was asked what I had been up to and I pointed to the fishing tackle in the car. The policeman told me there had been 'suspicious' activity in the area and then asked if I had a license. Showed him my club book and rod license and he sent me on my way. To this day I don't think he knew what he was looking at when I showed him the rod license!

Same as Derek,... no box to tick ( 10 years ago)
I note that the EA provide ' at a glance' license check info for the regions....
