Expat American angler Hugo Llorens, searching for places to go fly fishing for wild trout in the Pyrenees, Spain; accompanied his fishing mad family to Huesca province in Northern Aragón, in May 2011.

Hugo recounts “ The place has great ambiance, its food is wonderful, and the Cinca and Ara rivers are on your doorstep. We were able to obtain our fishing license from our hotel, and that included access to a restricted portion of the river Cinca, near to the town of Bielsa. 
Both rivers are fine trout streams. We were able to catch several brown and rainbows fishing, using size eighteen red quills and black gnats, on the surface. Early morning and early evening were good for the dry fly lures. Early afternoon, I recall we caught our biggest fish, a nice brown - maybe close to a pound, using nymphs (size eighteen). I recall that we were fishing a Prince nymph. 
It's a beautiful area and the trout water is wonderful, although nearly all of our fish were relatively small, at 6-9 inches, except for the fat brown trout, which I caught on public, free fishing water, onthe river Cinca just south of Ainsa. We fished with a floating line (3-4 weight).”
