So yesterday i was at a fishery and the baliff/environmental agent was chatting to me normally (At this point i never knew he was a baliff or whatever he was) he was just asking normal questions have i had ewt ect how long have i been here, just like a normal angler would as they pass by the next minute he whips his badge out like hes FBI and says i bet you dont have a rod licence do you, I said yes i do but i dont have it on me you can make your calls or whatever and double check if you like, Starts being off with me saying he can't do that i'll have to go. Showed him my bank car, ID ect but he said i'm lying about my name. Then things got strange he started giving me loads of grief because i didn't know how much a day ticket was because i've never been there so i did it wrong, started taking pictures of me and my car REG saying he knows im lying. I stood there and said please call whoever you can and ask them but still he carried on with his horrible attitude i was just sick of the smirky face he had kicking me off while everyone was watching, i left because it's pointless causing a pain over such thing i was the only person he asked for a license infact i was the only one he came over too, i saw him walking around the lake previously didnt pull his badge out on them
This was the first time i've been to this fishery and the last, must of had regulars they liked or regular members i have no idea.
is this normal behaviour for them or? this is the first ever time i've been asked for my fishing license and it was a horrible encounter with a pretty horrible bloke.
Going to have to make sure i don't mistakenly forget to bring it.
