Fishing rods users may benefit from Lakes initiative

Those bringing their fishing rods with them to the Lake District this year may benefit from an initiative to improve the quality of the water in the Windermere basin.

Enhancements to the marine environment in and around England's largest lake are among the projects planned in a year that marks 60 years since the national park was formed.

Park Authority chief executive Richard Leafe said 2011 will be a "special year", despite budget cuts.

This will include transport improvements anglers may benefit from, he noted, stating: "We will see progress with many projects such as a new smart travel card for public transport, the Go Lakes card."

And there will also be a wide range of events marking the start of the national park's seventh decade.

Following the National Parks Act of 1949, four such areas were designated in 1951, with the very first being the Peak District.

The other two were Snowdonia and Dartmoor.
