Fly Fishing In Spain
Verdant green valleys, high altitude wildflower meadows and the majestic Pyrenees mountains provide a spectacular backdrop to great trout fishing in Northern Spain. Ivan Tarin and his team of guides at Salvelinus are very well recognized for their hard work and knowledge. With over 200 miles of mountain terrain, you'll have opportunities to catch native Mediterranean zebra trout, barbel fish, brown, rainbow, and brook trout in streams and lakes that can only be accessed with special permission - including several protected natural areas that are recognized as UNESCO Biosphere Reserves. The wide varieties of water see little pressure and are home to trout that do not see a lot of flies. For the purist, the dry-fly fishing is exceptional!
The Spanish Pyrenees are home to some of the most beautiful villages and breathtaking countryside we've ever seen. In the company of local, expert guides, you'll discover Romanesque villages and an ancient stone monastery dating back to the Middle Ages. Take time to absorb the incredible scenery and learn about the history of the region on easy-going hikes in an impressive gorge and Ordesa National Park, the first protected area in Spain and a must-see for any trip to the Pyrenees. No visit to the Pyrenees would be complete without visiting a vineyard; we'll take you to one of the region's finest organic wineries to sample the local wines followed by a barbeque lunch.
