There was a commercial greenhouse near where I grew up that was under a 132kV line and hung hundreds of tubes in the greenhouse to provide light 24x7. They ended up getting prosecuted as they were the only greenhouse with no power supply that was lit up 24x7.. hahah
That's a bit rude. It's not like they stole the electricity. It simply 'leaked' out of the lines.
No way on earth would I muck around with coils of wire under a HV line. Unless you really know what you are doing, what if you did actually manage to energize a coil. Would it be 1v, 10v, or 132kv?

That would be a death sentence.
You can get a Fluro light to glow from the ground. It is a very safe experiment. Google Furos Glowing Under HV Line.
