Spanish Fishing Holidays: Fly-Fishing for Trout & Barbel

Spain Fishing: Salvelinus

Flyfishing with Salvelinus in the Pyrenees Northern Spain New WhereWiseMenFish destination

The fishing experience in the Northern Pyrenees is the polar opposite to that experienced in a stocked Trout lake. The fishing will be challenging and exciting and there are no catch guarantees. On a good day you may end up holding a trophy Trout or a dozen memorable fish caught on a dry fly. On a bad day you will have to contend with the exquisite remote scenery that surrounds the ancient dwellings in the area all overshadowed by mountainous backdrops. Fantastic food and wine in local lodges compliment the experience. In short a fishing trip to the Pyrenees is a modern day fishing retreat and being a direct flight away from most major European cities it affords a perfect break for anglers and non-anglers alike.
