Fishing pilgrimage

in the footsteps of Ernest Hemingway.

Last news, fishing is open for season 2018 on the rio Irati !
I provide guidance in the footsteps of the great American writer who fished this river in the 1920s. Only in May and June (Spanish regulations).

Fantastic fly fishing day on the rio Irati.

Here is a very good article by one of my Australian clients in 2014. In the Footsteps of Hemingway by Bob Beamish, New South Wales Rod Fishers’ Society Journal (2014-2015).

About 90 years after the stories of his fishing in the novels "Sun Also Rises", Chapter 11, and in "Summer dangerous" in Chapter 9, I suggest you fish for trout on the magnificent river Irati which has it’s source in France and then flows through the Spanish Navarre.

I propose one day of fishing to discover  these trout of Mediterranean origins which  have a colour very different from those of the Nives rivers system.
