You knows it Neil.

My mate had 3 rods out on a famous carp fishery the other day, even though he had just one licence, lo and behold he spotted EA officer looking at his rods coming straight towards him. Too late to pull a rod in, he said to his chum "keep him talking" and dived in his bivvy, got the internet up on his phone and paid for another licence. Jumped out of his bivvy and the officer asked him to produce two licences so he showed him one and told him to check for the other which he said he'd bought the night before.

The EA guy said he can and will check, he strolled off making phone calls but never returned.

I think they call that superblag ?

No rod licenses up here in Pikey scotland Kev, as you probably know. It will probably happen one day. My brother told me it's 27 or so for 2 rods. It seems very unfair in that some pikers like to fish 3, in which case you would have to buy another license. I understand it's a very serious offence if you are caught.

Seems like EA are just interested in taking the money for various projects rather than policing all the anglers who never bother with a rod license. I've fished a long long time and have never been asked by anyone to produce my license, not even by fishery owners. Says a lot don't it, money money money!!!!!

If this is the case, why don't more fishary owners check licences? I have never seen a bailif or been asked to produce my licence at any of the venues that i visit. i agree with the licence as it does put something back in to the sport, but if it is not enforced it is a waste of time and money. Personally I think shops should check that you have a valid rod licence before selling you tackle, just like they do when you buy a television these days.

got both of mine checked earlier in the year when fishing four rods with my eldest lad (10)
The baliff was suprised that produced two as most people claim their kid(s) are fishing the others.
Never, ever had mine checked when fluff chucking mind you after probably 20 years

When i lived in England, in the Anglian water area, we used to get our licenses checked constantly!! It was actually quite reassuring to see that the authorities cared enough to be bothered!!

I now live in Northern Ireland and, even though i don't fish as much now as i used to, i still haven't had mine checked and i've been fishing here for 5 years!!!

Always renew it though!!

I was once asked by a bailiff on my carp syndicate to produce my ticket (not the EA licence), even though he had seen it about a week previously, and knew I was a member! He compounded the matter by saying, ''I know you've got one, but I want to see it anyway!''. Five million sperm...

Also, for those of you coming 'dahn sahf', be aware that you will need a separate licence for salmon and migratory trout if you fancy doing some fluff-chucking - and it's more expensive than the coarse licence.

One thing to be aware of is that you are required to produce your licence to the bailiff when requested. I have had my licences checked on several occasions over the years, but one time I didn't have them on me. Fortunately, the guy was pretty laid back, and I showed him proof of my identity and he made a quick phone call (I pay by direct debit) and it was fine. I suppose the main thing is that they've had my hard-earned! Other bailiffs may not be so sensible, so don't take the risk as they seldom take prisoners!

You can get weekly and daily licences but to be fair they do not represent value for money, Full year costs 25, a 1 Week licence costs 12 and I think a day licence costs something like 4.

Used to get checked very bloody week when I used to fish Abberton and Ardleigh, by the same bloody ballif, he knew us all by name yet had amnesia when it came to rembering if we had rod licences, one week he checked my licence on the saturday at Abberton then I fished Ardleigh the Sunday I wore a different jacket so forgot my licence sods law he came along, asked me how I got on at Abberton, the day before then asked for my licence, he knew damn bloody well that I had one yet he gave me a producer, I had the send my licence of to the NRA it wa a right pulava as they then managed to lose it. I believe that ballif was eventually sacked due to complaints about his attitude.

I totally agree with you Korda.I also buy 2 every year and for the past 20 years ive never even seen a balif let alone been asked for my Licence.
I think they should fine those that dont have a licence harder that could then be used to fund more balifs which in turn would catch more people.

I have been checked may be half a dozen times in 30 odd years, but I still get one every year, I would not be comfortable without it. You probably have never had your driving licence checked but you would be a fool to drive without one. As for a sea licence, I don,t see how it can benefit anglers, the powers that be are reluctant to introduce any measures that protect our sea resources, particularly if it upsets the commercial fishermen, if stocks cannot be protected from over fishing what possible benefit could a licence offer.

The EA Baliff in my area (Jim) is well on top of the poaching ... 2 out of 3 times fishing this week he has arrived and had a chat and checked my rod licence ... I peronally think it is a very good thing that he is doing his job and maybe anglers who know people are taking the micky and fishing the same waters as they are for free should point out to the EA that their local baliff is not doing his job ... You never know you might land yourself a job as a local baliff ...

I have no time for people who claim to be part of the scene yet will not do the right thing and pay 25 for the rod licence ...

Too rite. I have only ONCE ever in my life met a bailiff and I was 11 at the time. I fish venues all over the country and do not know were they all are. Is there a secret hut or house they all hide away in lol

wouldnt even consider fishing some waters unless I was using four rods others one is ample it all depends on your ability and the venue in question

To catch more fish and on harder waters it gives you more of a chance

Steve why 3 rods ( I think one rod is more than enough) just go for the fourth and get your moneys worth!.......we obviously fish different methods I respect your fishing methods, but don't agree with them.....with respect mate!

Not saying it's a con, I have no problem in paying my money as I hope it does some good and your right in what you say I know a couple of anglers with all the gear but no rod licence. I just wish it could be done a different way

It is not a con, but i feel that what bugs people is that they know a lot of people dont buy them and get away with it. I have always bought one and know of several lads on my waters that have thousands of pounds worth of gear but no licence - in fact they probably put more 's worth of bait in the lake over a weekend than the value of the licence. But do we ever see an E.A baliff - once a year on easter weekend so they all avoid the place on this date!!

I always buy a rod licence but the more i think about it the more I start to get annoyed. I tend to use 3 rods when i can but to do this i need to buy 2 licences why can't the EA bring out some kind of system where you can pay 1/2 for the extra rod................not fair

Just thought I would remind you that you need a new rod licence at the end of this month (one licence covers two rods just incase you didn't know)

If you wish to fish 3 rods you will need two licences but the second licence will allow you to fish four rods where you are allowed

You can obtain them from your local post office or buy them online

To buy them online click the link below...
