I have not been fishing for several years.
I was taught by my grandfather. Wonderful days above the bridge at Cringleford on the outskirts of Norwich.
Now it is my turn.
I know how to make a trace. Do the float bit. Tie a hook.i dare not tell you how many years ago.

Can I use a hook with a barb, lead weights, a keep net, a disgorger, a priest if I catch a pike.

But importantly do I need a licence. The boys are seven and nine, I don't think that they need one. Do I? I will not be fishing but teaching. This will involve casting, striking on a bite, perhaps landing.
If we accidentally catch a pike do I need a gaff.

Some of this is a bit tongue in cheek. It is the licence bit that I would appreciate some advice. But please feel free to comment wherever!

Hi

Good luck you will have fun

No the kids don't need a licence unril they are 12 and even then it is free until they are 16.

However I think your explanation of what you will be doing meets most people's definition of fishing particularly the landing.

You can get a licence for 8 days for £20.

I think you probably know  it's a no to most of your other points.

Barbs are generally banned , lead is universally banned, keep nets are much bigger than they used to be and even then they are frowned on in many places.

Not sure about a gaffe but I think a priest is definitely not a starter.

Not a very good example for the youngster perhaps.

Love to see their first fish landed

The boys don't need a licence (under 12). Why don't you just buy an annual licence for £30 (£20 if you're over 65), to save having to explain to the EA officer that you weren't really fishing, just teaching the boys how to cast, hold the rod and reel in that big 'un that accidentally got impaled on your hook tounge-in-cheek

Thanks Graham. The reply I had hoped for and expected on the silly bits.

One final question if I may. Can I get a day license and if so how much and where from - post office perhaps?

Yes it is ten pounds I think. Post offices did them last year but it is also easy on line , just type  in fishing licence or rod licence.

I didn't dare suggest it in case you got offended by me assuming you were as decrepit as me.

Have a great time

Are you just fishing for Pike? If you haven't done it for a while then fish care has moved on somewhat and it might be advisable to check some pike handling videos. Also unhooking mats and larger landing nets are available and advisable. You can use barbed hooks but I wouldn't advoctae them for Pike you'd be better of with semi-barbed on trebles hooks where just one point has a barb and this is the one you use for bait mounting.

Not teaching you to suck eggs but you may find some of the above helpful and especially useful for teaching the younger generation... as said have fun

Edited to say... I have seen that you are not fishing for Pike purposefully but left this post on in case its of any use

Hi Simo is right, barbed hooks are not banned and are still used by a lot of serious Pike Anglers because they retain more fish than semi barbed. However they are much harder to remove and can do more damage to the fish. Semi barbed hooks have a barb on only one tine of each hook which is used to hook and retain the dead bait or live bait. You could also use single circle hooks.
The use of a Gaff of any sort is not necessary or I believe legal now and why would you want a priest? Are you fishing for Pike with intention of eating them? If so be aware of the limits and the fact that you may well be very unpopular with other fisherman and passers by.
If your fishing specifically for Pike please ensure you have the proper tackle, 25lb min line or Braid, A large landing net, a large unhooking mat, forceps, pliers and wire cutters. The fact that you are talking about using a gaff would suggest to me that you haven't fished for many many years.
However if all that was just a wind up I suggest you get out a bit more Indifferent
