Anglers in the East of England can head to any of ten new wooden platforms with their fishing tackle
, thanks to a joint initiative between the Broads Authority and the Environment Agency.
A 150-metre stretch of reed bed on the River Waveney has been improved near Worlingham, with new platforms and a boardwalk being installed.
Fishers have also been given priority on a bank upstream from the 24-hour mooring facility at Worlingham, to compensate for the restriction on fishing in this area.
Eight of the boards have access over the reed beds, while two others are close to the car park and linked by granite paths designed to be suitable for wheelchair users.
The news was welcomed by Mark Casto, the chairman of the Broads Angling Strategy Group.
He said: "This is a fantastic resource for local anglers to enjoy because not only is it a good safe place to fish, it's a really lovely spot."
Other angling developments in the Broads taking place this year have included the opening of the River Yare at Whitlingham Country Park near Norwich to fishers after a year's successful trial, including a code of conduct for anglers.
