Ask a flyfisherman for his wish list of locations, and I’m pretty certain Spain wouldn’t even warrant a mention. Narrow it down to large wild brown trout and I’ll put money on it that New Zealand and Iceland would be topping the list. Reference Spain in the same sentence as double figure wild brown trout and most people laugh at you…until you start showing them pictures.
And if the monster browns aren’t enough to excite, wait until dusk and swap your dry fly for a big streamer to head to some of the deeper pools in search of huchen. Known to exceed 100lbs in their home waters, Spain hosts one of the only self-sustaining populations outside their original catchment, the Danube.
Our guide is nothing short of a genius: as long as you can throw a reasonable line, he will have you handling 20ft leaders in no time and casting tiny, drag-free flies to the waiting leviathans.You may be fishing light, but the fish are BIG!
