Slider-cast-at-camera
Follow in Hemingway’s footsteps and experience what he called ‘the closest thing to heaven’: fly fishing in the Spanish Pyrenees.

The Spanish Pyrenees contain an astonishing diversity of landscapes. Many present opportunities to flick fluff: high mountain lakes with spectacular views, hidden gorges teaming with zebra and brown trout, and stunning mid-size mountain streams where you will find the biggest trout. From our carefully chosen and strategically located local accommodation, you will have access to some of the Pyrenees’ best fly fishing in a pristine landscape that is among the most well protect natural areas in Spain.

SEASON

1 June to 30 September

KIT & CLOTHING

No specific clothing required, however fishing at 2000m can provide very variable conditions. Neutral colours and layers are best.

At times, even with the water from snow melt and cold, it can be comfortable to wet wade. We do, however, strongly recommend waders.

Polarised sunglasses, and a hat will not only provide protection, but make spotting of fish easier.

Due to altitude and potential for bright sunshine we recommend a good high factor sun cream.

Mainly floating lines as the majority of fishing will be dry fly. An intermediate or slow sink line however can be useful for some of the mountain lakes.
