The owner says

Experience the unspoiled nature of Spain’s Pyrenees where crystal clear waters teem with wild trout. You’ll have access to more than 60 rivers –1.500 miles– and 180 lakes all within easy driving distance of our two lodges. Salvelinus features comfortable accommodation, delicious Mediterranean cuisine, and Spain’s famous Rioja wines. It’s the perfect trip for couples blending first-rate fly fishing with Old World charm.
Come as a guest... return as a friend.
SALVELINUS has organized fly fishing tours and expeditions in the Pyrenees of northern Spain since 1999.
SALVELINUS takes its task seriously; all the effort put into each adventure is to live up to what the guest wants out of a fishing holiday.
Expect a welcoming atmosphere, friendly staff and a cultural experience known by few in this special corner of the world.
Fihing lodgesSalvelinus offers a wide range of accommodation beginning with the two main lodges, each centrally located in its region to provide the best access to outstanding fishing:
La Jacetania Lodge: a 15th-century stone built fishing lodge, on the banks of the Aragon River, in the picturesque village of Santa Cilia in the western Pyrenees.
La Ribagorza Lodge: a charming traditional hotel in the Pyrenees with superb local cuisine serves as the main SALVELINUS base of operations in the eastern Pyrenees.
Both are well equipped with comfortable rooms, outstanding new and traditional Spanish cuisine, and complemented by select Rioja and Pyrenees wines.

SALVELINUS not only works from 2 strategically located Lodges in the heart of the Pyrenees but can also offer a choice range of accommodation close to the fishing hotspots throughout the extensive Pyrenees of northern Spain in the regions of Navarre, Aragon, Catalonia and the small independent country of Andorra
(Historic hotels, Old palaces, Restored farms, Monasteries,Secluded resort) .
Any of the hostelries provide Mediterranean cuisine with traditional Spanish dishes as well as a selection of Spanish wines.
