The local rivers to the lodges are considered 'blue ribbon'. They have been chosen because they offer great fly fishing ease of access and are a very special place to be.
For the more adventurous experience, you can take a Pyrenees tour with your fly-rod form west to east, sight-fishing and stalking for Trophy Trout, or take a remote exploratory either on horseback or via helicopter. The opportunities are endless.
The high mountain streams can produce fish ten to fourteen inches. The middle mountain streams and lower reaches studded with pools flats and runs with trout between twelve to twenty inches. The high mountain lakes that are perfect for sight-fishing from the bank for trout sixteen to twenty-two inches and in the tail waters and lakes you can hook a Trout of a lifetime, a true Trophy fish. Most of the fishing is by walking and wading and access is generally good and the wading safe.
For the Rainbow and Brown Trout a #5 weight rod, 9ft - 9ft 6 covers most situations, though it can be useful to have a lighter 8ft setup, and a heavier 9ft 6 setup as well. Floating line - Dry fly fishing is popular, but Czech nymphing works well on some of the very swift pools.
We would advise all anglers to take their own equipmentrods, reels, lines, waders and boots etc. De-barbed hooks are preferred and the fishing is all 'catch and release'.
The lodge can also offer coaching as well as a range of fly fishing courses designed for beginners, intermediates an advanced fly-fishers.
