Those who like to get their fishing tackle into action are among the groups at whom a new guide to the Peak District has been launched.

Published by the national park authority, the guide is aimed at anyone who is unfamiliar with the area and will provide information on where to go fishing, as well as details on other activities including walking, mountain biking and water sports.

It is available online and can also be bought for £1 at the Bakewell, Castleton, Derwent and Edale national park visitor centres, as well as tourist information centres in Buxton, Matlock and Ashbourne.

Visitor service manager for the park authority Sue Beswick said: "We hope this booklet will give people the inspiration to get out into the hills and dales to enjoy the fresh air and healthy exercise."

According to the national park website, the best places to fish are the rivers Wye, Derwent and Dove for trout and grayling, while Tittesworth, Rudyard, Ladybower and Carsington reservoirs offer coarse fishing.
