used to be checked every other week by the river board in the 60's.
Since then only been checked by club bailiff who checks club card and licence every time on some venues.

Twice. First time was the first year I started fishing, early 90s, second time was pike fishing last year, where the EA guy took exception to the fact that I had a third rod made up (but was NOT fishing with) and was very rude and abrupt with me, which resulted in me complaining to the EA. ...and starting a thread about it on here to make sure I wasn't in the wrong.

I've also only been asked for club tickets twice, and neither time were the club bailiffs interested in seeing my rod licence.

I had mine checked on the Lower Severn about three years ago by a couple of EA Bailiffs in a small inflatable. Good way to cover large sections of river, although i doubt they saw many anglers down there!

Never seen an EA/NRW bailiff in my 35 years of fishing....!!!! They'll probably be like buses now.....!

But I religiously buy my licence every year and will continue to do so while I'm still upright.
