We should wel­come the pres­ence of EA bailiffs on the bank

Angling Times (UK) - - SOUTH -

I RE­CENTLY had a day on the bank at my lo­cal com­mer­cial fish­ery and was pleased to see an En­vi­ron­ment Agency bailiff come round to check rod li­cences.

He stopped by my peg, had a po­lite bit of a chitchat and then asked to see my li­cence – which I pro­duced – be­fore he said good­bye and moved on to the next an­gler.

Later that day I talk­ing to an­other an­gler who started moan­ing about the EA bailiff. He called him ‘nosey’ and said he should ‘get a proper job’.

I couldn’t be­lieve this. I thought it was fan­tas­tic that the EA had sent a mem­ber of staff out. Surely we should be keen to see bailiffs, as this shows our li­cence money is be­ing spent well in help­ing to stamp out eva­sion. Chris Til­lett, Gains­bor­ough
