Never, not even SEEN a bailiff in nearly 4 decades of angling.

I have fished since age seven, am now nearly 78, so that is seventy and a half years

In all that time have NEVER been asked to show a licence whilst on a river or natural still water.

Have seen just two sets of bailiffs on pay lakes (they hunt in couples) during that seventy-odd years, but I rarely fish such places.

Once on a put-and-take trout fishery, (1996) and

Once at a commercial where I was roach fishing (2010)
As I was only using one rod (although I held two licences) with tongue in cheek I handed the bailiff just one licence - my salmon/seatrout licence - he was so excited by this he called his mate over to show him the picture of a salmon on the licence - obviously had not seen one before - which tells us all how often they check our local sea-trout river.

I haven't voted (as per request), so can't see the results - what are they so far ?

why Haven't you voted its open to those that have fished for more than 5 years! :D

Believe NOTHING anyones says or writes unless you witness  it yourself and even then your eyes can deceive you

 

There is only one opinion i listen to ,its mine and its ALWAYS right even when its wrong

 

Its far easier to curse the darkness than light one candle

 

Whitby scallops caught by scottish boats best that money can buy,the nearer the shore they're dredged the better they taste
