The Lake District is also an ideal location for excellent fishing, with an array of beautiful rivers, lakes and tarns, set amid a backdrop of fells and high peaks, with breathtaking views of the highest mountains in England. The region has something to offer every type of angler, with a rich diversity of fishing on unspoilt waters. All anglers must obtain an Environment Agency rod licence and fly fishing permit before fishing any Lake District water. They are available from all Cumbrian post offices as well as the main tourist information centres. Sailing enthusiasts will also find the Lake District to their liking, with towns like Windermere, Coniston, Ambleside and Bowness joining the fells beyond to provide a superb backdrop.
