Nives rivers system.
In the Basque country, from March to September, in landscapes of a majectic 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 take you reach a feeling of plenitude and harmony with nature that you will not forget. Whatever is your level, from beginner to the expert, who are a man or a woman, I would put at your service all my knowledge, technical, pedagogical, naturalists an histories, so that your fishing experience will bring you wild fish, 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 you, should allow you thereafter to evolve in all autonomy. If like me, you already practised a great number of rivers, guidance that I propose 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.
Fishing territory
Basin of Nives rivers, exceptional inheritance of Basque Country.
Constituted by almost 200 kilometer of banks classified as trout and salmon rivers, and with courses of a large variety, Basques Nives will fill the fishermen whatever their level or their physical capacities. The softness of the climate and regular pluviometry make it possible to practice trout or salmon fishing from March to September without much risk of melting snow or severe drought.
Rio Irati, in Spanish Navarra, 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).
