Not being an angler if any description can I be the one to ask the obvious question?
Is fishing in a match or even leisure stuff so intense and dramatic that you cannot be distracted for the fifteen seconds or so that it would take to show your licence?

Harlo, it's not quite as simple as 15 seconds to check (although in that time a match angler could miss a fish that costs him the match) In reality a match Angler has a lot of tackle set up around him, often in the water or in swampt ground around the edge, quite often that is in the reeds or down the bank, dependant on the day the Angler could be wearing several layers of clothing etc. So an E.A. officer may not be able to get down to him/her the Angler has to wind in his tackle, move tackle out of the way get out of his fishing peg and then get out his wallet to produce his license then reverse the process. May only take a few minutes but that is all it takes to a/ miss bites b/ to break concentration. Angling is a serious sport, I can't see Lewis Hamilton being very happy if the race officials flagged him down mid-race to produce his racing license.

Match anglers are not above the law but why do the licence checks not happen at the draw ensuring that all are checked but no inconvenience is occurred mid match

The EA guys or the anglers?

Blooming heck TT. It must be a serious sport if it can be compared to Formula one. Do the winners make tens of millions a year? If so I wish my granddads attempts to introduce me to angling had not failed so miserably! Smile
So no fan of angling but I am not sure that I do not find "motor sport" even less appealing...
Personally I like team sports that feature physical prowess and usually one sort of ball or other. Each to their own I guess!

Does this include miss beckham or miss Ronaldo rolling over holding their limbs until the ref books somebody then hey ho their feeling much better, amazing how a booking or even better a sending off can cure pain and discomfort.
How long did mrs beckham take to get over a cracked metatarsal??
I watched a speedway rider go out and defend a world championship lead less than a week after having 13 screws and 3 plates inserted in his foot, for a pittance compared to the soccer prima donnas.
Ball games Bah....
Except for womens tennis....

I personally not really follow football Dezign.
Rugby union and cricket  would be at the top of my list.
My issue with motor sport is that the vehicles are often the deciding factor in who wins rather than the driver. Put the best F1 driver in an also ran car and he will not win...
Although I concede that in some disciplines like your mentioned speedway the vehicles have less impact.
Motor sports are enjoyed by many but not by me!

Agreed H.. I don't know why they have drivers anymore in F1 they could probably be driven from a remote joystick like a radio controlled car lol

Genuine question to match anglers from a non-fisherman ...

When you apply to enter a match, is it a pre-requisite of entry for you to prove to the match organisers that you hold a current rod licence ?

If so, then surely all the EA bods have to do is to ask for a name and verify licence details with the official organisers - whereby minimising disturbance and concentration to an angler during a match ?

Then again, maybe that's a simplistic approach   Smile
