Fly Fishing in Spain

The Pyrenees of Aragon ...

With Ivan Tarin

Let me introduce Ivan  (and a decent trout)

Fish species !, you will mostly fish for mountain streams brown trout on dry flies. Some higher stretches and some lakes offer nice brookies (salvelinus), and some  lower stretches trophy rainbows.  Altitude spots can sometimes be joined by helicopter. Lower valleys may offer astonishing barbel fishing with nypmhs or dries.

Let me introduce also the region of Aragon with the pictures below : breathtaking landscapes, pristine streams, rich fauna, old stones, a feel of history and heart touching characters. This is what you will find in the central Spanish Pyrenees, the former kingdom of Aragon with the stunning and charming Ivan. You can come with a rental car or by train or plane, and we'll arrange to pick you up. The minimum stay is two nights & two days fishing, but it is recommended to stay more if you don't want to miss anything. This place is definitely "wife endorsed", there is no worry. As usual we'll take care of the rest of your trip if you wish to continue somewhere in Spain or France.And of course we'll put a price on any project if you contact us by email. In the meantime, enjoy those pictures of Aragon... Yours friendly ./ Nick.

Pamplona

Pamplona is actually in Navarre, but can be a good start to your trip. There is an airport in Pamplona with flights from the major other Spanish airports. You can spend there your first or last night.  Pamplona needs no introduction among the readers of Hemingway, and the lovers of the San Fermines fiestas...

The view from your hotel room in Pamplona

The famous café Iruña, one of the best.....  breakfast place ! in the world...



All the region is a highlight stage on the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela

A nice village "cutting" the road between Pamplona & our fishing spots of Aragon.

Mountain landscapes....

The Pyrenees of Aragon, & (small on the right), a medieval castle defending the valley

unspoiled valleys

fly fishermen walking back to the cars parked at the shepherd's shelter



and driving down back to the lodge at the end of the day...

Rich fauna....

Marmots, chamois & large birds of prey can be observed with binoculars...

while a weird vulture, is taking a rest on a mountain road !

Hopefully not many cars take this road, and ours are often "off road"...

Stunning streams & crystal clear waters...

.

Ivan is proud to show you these wonderful spots

Old stones & rich culture...

Each of these small mountain villages has an old church...



and a picturesque old centre to visit

sometimes with a nice bar or restaurant

This excellent Spanish style cheese cake (tarta de queso), with a topping of mountain berries, was found  in a village bar, near one of these churches...

Great Spanish life & gastronomia...

The bar at the lodge is the place for night caps & never ending fishing controversies...

Grand Style picnics are served in the mountain to "cut" the fishing day

the food is sometimes cooked on open fires of traditional country houses

while girls can enjoy a bit of "tapas crawling"...

... and shopping in the very attractive neighbour town of Jaca
