“The Closest thing to Heaven” is how American novelist Ernest Hemingway described fly-fishing in the Spanish Pyrenees. In the 1920’s he found himself fascinated by stunning natural beauty, the warmth of local people, and the strategic location for outstanding fly-fishing. Follow in Hemmingway’s footsteps and take your adventures to the Spanish Pyrenees and indulge in warm sunshine, exotic culture, delicious food, and breath taking landscapes.

The Spanish Pyrenees contains diverse landscapes with several different options for fly fishing: high mountain lakes with spectacular views, hidden gorges teaming with zebra trout and brown trout, and incredible mid-sized mountain streams stocked with the largest trout in the Pyrenees and the Iberian Barbel.

Pyrenees (Mountains of Hercules)

The legends of our land contain stories about the formation of the Pyrenees. It was thousands of years ago when the kings of Olympus sent the giants to fight the men on earth. Hercules, warrior and greek hero, was in love with Pyrene, daughter of Tubal, King of Iberia. Tubal disapproved the love between them and the result had a fateful ending…

Pyrene died, and in her memory Hercules erected a tomb of an entire mountain range, reaching 3400 meters at its highest point. Now the Pyrenees separate France and Spain and join two seas, the Cantabrian Sea and the Mediterranean, and it is one of the most unique and beautiful places in Spain.

The Pyrenees formed through the collision of tectonic plates during the Tertiary. Ordesa National Park is one of the most striking geological sites of the region. Monte Perdido is the highest limestone peak of Europe just next to the breathtaking Ordesa Valley carved by glaciers during the Quaternary.

Pyranees Fly Fishing 2

This is where most of our fishing activities take place – at the intersection of nature, stunning geology, and mountain culture. There are hikes for beginners and great challenges for mountaineers. Ordesa has a wide range of opportunities – landscapes, sport, fauna, flora, gastronomy, culture, and tradition.

The park also is part of an area of more than 15,000 hectares recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Monte Perdido reigns over several valleys with rivers of clear water – and any fisherman who approaches the shore will enjoy.

We focus on trout fishing in the Spanish regions of Catalonia and Andorra, we have the best fly fishing guides, accommodations, fishing licenses, permits & required liability insurance.

We also have fly fishing in Picos de Europa National Park and surrounding areas, of Cantabria, Asturias, Castillo y Leon.

We like to fish the 1st day on the river Ter (Anglès) the 2nd day at Tristaina Lakes or the river Valira in Andorra. Usually where ever is best fishing and hatches is where we are keying for guiding. We always confer with our friends and other guides as to what is going on in addition to rivers we know well in Andorra in order to know where would be the best spots to fish for that day depending on the water conditions, forecast, etc…

River Ter – River Segre

Hotels near the river Segre in the higher regions of the Pyrenees are pretty expensive, we like to put all our clients in more affordable lodging in the quant towns of Girona & Andorra. These hotels are 50 km or 32 miles from the Pyrenees mountains. The Segre mountain rivers are for more advanced anglers and clientele with a larger budget, this is why we like to fish in 2 different areas with clients. The high Segre for beauty and zebra trout one day, and a 2nd day in the lower Segre near Ponts fishing for larger browns and rainbows. Zebra trout are notorious for being selective feeders and are generally more illusive and smart.

River Ter

River Ter is born in the Pyrenees, the fish are relatively smaller than the lower reaches due to higher elevations, colder waters and metabolism effects on growth. Zebra trout are ancient relics from the ice age and can adjust to the harsh winter climates of the Hercules & Hemingway mountains. Down river, the climate changes into receding valley’s where larger rainbows and brown trout prevail, there is more bug activity in these zones, predictable fly fishing with tree lined rivers that enhance bug habitat, especially in the late spring and summer months.

trout

Predictable insect hatches are a daily offering for the trout. There’s a good zone we like to concentrate on in both rivers, you can be sure we’ll be on top our game to assist you in being at the right places at the right time. This is key for fishing in all over Spain, as knowing when the run off schedule for that particular year is the ultimate key for success. Both rivers offer both dry fly and nymphing opportunities, as we like to tie our own special flies for these rivers that we know are proven and effective.

Rod, Reel, Waders & Boots Can Be Rented For 36 Euros or $42 USD Per Day, Call or Email For More Info.

River Segre in Ponts

River Segre in Ponts, is very good for larger browns and rainbow trout. The upper Segre near Andorra, we fish the river Segre and the river Valira at the confluences. This is a really good section to catch larger trout on both dries and nymphs as we know it well. The best month to fish are late May through the summer months, then again in the fall. Everything is based on what the insects, climate and time of year is offering. The key for us is our keen knowledge of knowing where to be when and where not to be why.

We advise clients to do one day in the upper reaches and one day down in the lower sections on both the rivers, the Ter and the river Segre, depending on what your goals are and your budget. Let us help plan your next adventure, here at Jack Trout Fly Fishing International, you never pay anymore for our services, this assists the guide during the season, so questions you may have can be answered immediately by Jack, and the guides can get home off the rivers and not have to be bogged down with clients details. (The biggest complaint by guides today, the guides and my clients really appreciate what we facilitate on all ends, for ultimate success.)

It gives them more time to spend with their families and tie a few more bugs up for the next day, concentrate on guiding. This is a winning team you can count on for your travels to Spain and throughout Europe, no other outfit worldwide assists clients with quality experienced Jack Trout approved guides for one day trips, than Jack Trout Fly Fishing International, check out our Tripadvisor reviews and you’ll see why, we take the mystery out of one fly fishing international travel.

The chamois is the emblematic species of the Pyrenees. It’s a high mountain animal, mainly diurnal, and is possible to see it all the day grazing in the meadows. It is a very agile and beautiful bovid. Chamois are very gregarious and is not difficult to see the grazing in the meadows. The big males are solitary and distrustful and the approaches to them are slow and require patience. They are animals of spectacular beauty and are the kings of the high mountains.

Roe deer is a cervid with a small size, very agile and fearful. It’s a precious animal. Photographs are not easy because they are always on the edge of the meadows and run quickly to the forest, for any alarm. However, early in the morning and late in the afternoon it’s possible to see them.

BEST FISHING GUIDE IN CATALONIA SPAIN

I called Jack Trout Fly Fishing and he set me up with Joanso, my guide he arranged in Catalonia Spain. That day we spent fishing the local river with both streamers and nymphs. Joan was extremely friendly and helpful and did a great job of teaching my novice fiance the mechanics of fly fishing. Although it was the tail end of the season, Joan was able to put us on the fish and I was lucky enough to land a monster 3.5 brown on a streamer. He also brought us to a fantastic local restaurant for tapas and wine for lunch. I highly recommend Jack and Joan's services and will be sure to return to Catalonia!
