A fly fishing break in the Pyrenees

The Pyrenees of Béarn

Trout stream of the Béarn mountains in the Pyrenees

The region of Béarn is only a small drive in the backcountry from the ocean celebrities like Biarritz or Saint Jean de Luz. It is a genuine region to visit offering a great mix of superb mountain landscapes, old stones, charming hotels, well kept villages and beautiful streams to fish for trout or salmon. We are offering very affordable and pleasant accommodation in village or country hotels. The local rustic gastronomy is really stunning. Please contact us by email if you wish to learn the price of a small break.

Open the gate to the Pyrenees...

a world of really nice and affordable village hotels & restaurants...

old stones...

salmon rivers flowing  in the streets of old villages

where you find mountain cheese and beautiful "charcuteries"

from picturesque street markets

or from my favorite "Fishing Butcher" !!!

Look at his salmon fishing pictures posted in his back !

He always gives the best advice to "compose" a fantastic fishing picnic...

And the great salmon pools are often also great picnic spots

And great trophy trout spots (here caught by your guide Greg).
