Been fishing for about 20 years and had to produce my licence several times.
The first time was when my bro in law was visiting (keen angler) and I took him down to the canal near Tring, after awhile he persuaded me to have a go and tackled up his spare rod.
I moved to the next peg and attempted to cast, tie hooks etc without much success.
The guy on the next peg watched me for about 15 mins then came up and said, I am the water bailiff, not much point in asking to see your licence then, no I said first time I have tried to fish.
He spent 1/2 hour with me showing me what to do then as he left he said, if you decide to take it up make sure you buy a licence.
