I want to take my 8 year old lad fishing, but I don't currently have a rod licence, my last visit I got a day licence...

For his first visit, I want to take him out, but not be out for too long in case he gets bored! I plan to fully devote my attention to teaching him, and therefore not fish myself! Would I need a rod licence to accompany him fishing, as rod licences aren't needed until 12?

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated, I've been out of the game for 11 years now, and my lads showing an interest in wanting to go fishing, so I thought what better excuse to start up again?

Info from Environment Agency FAQs
Quote:
Children younger than 12 do not need to buy a rod licence. Children aged 12 16 inclusive need to purchase a junior licence at 5.00. If you take a child fishing, we advise that you purchase a licence. If you are holding or helping to hold the rod you will need a licence.
