Trout Fishing on mythical river Nives of the Basque Country.


In the Basque Country, from March to September, in landscapes of a majestic wild beauty, or in the villages with architecture and the exceptional historical character, to practice the art of fly-fishing  is a must which will make you reach a feeling of plenitude and harmony with nature that you will not forget.

Read the Guardian news by Andy Pietrasik "A Basque banquet".

Whatever  is your level, from the beginner to the expert, who you are a man or a woman, I would put at your service all my knowledge, technical, pedagogical, naturalists and histories, so that your fishing party brings wild fish to you, but also an immersion in the culture and the so particular environment of the Basque Country.


If you are curious to discover esthetics and grace of fly-fishing, initiation that I propose to you, should allow you thereafter to evolve in all autonomy.


If like me, you already practised a great number of the rivers of France or overseas, Guidance that I propose to you will save you much time on Nives, certainly rich in wild trout, but who can show yourselves very capricious, with trout whose mistrust equalizes only the beauty.
