And on the Yare Saturday, I reckon they upset the match anglersthough, good that they are checking but in the middle of a fishing match??? Whats wrong with timing the visit just before or just after?
Not seen as big a match on the Yare for years, stretched from the Beauchamp all the way to to the private land before Langley Dyke

Isn't the offence 'fishing without a licence'? Preparing to fish without a licence - no offence.

Absolutely Pally but as the E.A. officers come along dressed like the S.A.S, with utility belts full of equipment including cameras (and I believe a body cam but not 100% sure of that), he could have taken their pics and come back and asked them for their license after the match.

If someone who was fishing without a licence knew his photo had been taken and the EA bod would be back later, would that person hang about? I don't think so.

True, but if you were on an organised match had tackle that was worth up to £6k you had bought £50 of bait (for that match) and then put the same again into the pot with a possibility of winning a few hundred quid I think the odds of not having a fishing license are virtually zero.
How ever I guess it's safer than finding some Lidl bag carrying, lager swigging youth with the bare minimum of tackle that he'd bought from the car boot.

The very first post pointed out that they were doing checks along the Bure. Perhaps match anglers consider themselves untouchable (or uncheckable).

I doubt it Pally, many of them fish matches Saturday and Sunday and often 1 or 2 nights in the week plus any leisure Angling they might do so the odds of them getting checked are far higher than the average pleasure Angler.
Call me cynical but I reckon he saw a match with probably over 50 participants as a quick way to fill his daily quota and I would be surprised if he caught 1 person without a license.
As I said I'm glad they are being more pro-active but IMHO checking match Anglers is a lot less important than checking out others.
That's just my thought of course.

TT, you're cynical  tounge-in-cheek

Do you actually know whether all the match anglers were checked? Genuine question. I was at Upton last week and saw a notice attached to a post, which I first took for a planning notice. But it was a copy of a letter from the EA to an angling club, giving permission for the club to hold a competition on a section of bank that is owned by the EA. One of the conditions was that individual anglers using the bank were not to be displaced.

It occurs to me that the EA chap you saw could have been checking any anglers who weren't actually taking part in the competition.

Don't know if he was checking every one but it was definitely Anglers in the Match as it was towards the middle of the pegs, when a club books pegs it books a section or more, not odd pegs here and there. I was speaking to my Son about it this evening and he is quite a serious match Angler and says it's not uncommon. He was actually quite chilled about it just being glad that some checking is going on.
