Why Custom Trips?
Like any angler, I always try to take advantage of the best conditions occurring to fish and that comes with updated information. Based on the information, I decide where to go fishing and that is what I offer to my clients. If you want to fish for trout, barbel or bluefin tuna, at a certain time, I look for the best conditions and locations, supported by professional guides and fly fishing friends. My challenge is that you fish in the best possible conditions. As you will see I do not mention specific fishing spots in this site, so I keep it for when I organize your trip, based on the season, species or location by which you have preference. 
Please contact me You will discover a Spain quite attractive for fly fishing and will enjoy all the best aspects of our country, such as culture, climate, food, wine and friendly people.

He went beyond the call of duty, in translating by cell phone, between my guide and myself during my fishing excursion, resulting in an incredible experience I’ll never forget. I will return!”

Ray Montoya barbel fly fishing Spain“Over several years, I have had a wonderful writing and publishing relationship with Pepe, so it was a great pleasure to finally have the opportunity to meet and fish with him on a recent holiday in Spain. It is not rare to encounter individuals within the global fly fishing community who have a deep passion, or a creative eye, or an innovation style, or the technical skill and deep love of the history and tradition of fly fishing, but it is rare to meet someone who encompasses all of these traits.  It is equally rare to meet someone so humble and generous with their time and knowledge. I hold the highest regard for Pepe as a fly fisherman, artist, conservationist, and a compassionate advocate for all that is fly fishing. “

"I had a fantastic day out with José on a reservoir near Madrid chasing barbel and carp. He took my 14 year old son in hand, helping with his casting and putting him into two carp. It was a tough day fishing toward the end of the season, but José's enthusiasm and energy kept us going. Magazine editor, film maker and TV presenter as well as a guide, José is a very accomplished and well-travelled fisherman who is passionate about showing the visiting angler the best of what his own country has to offer. Very highly recommended." Sebastian Hope. UK

"I spent my birthday fishing with Jose as we stalked the elusive Spanish barbel.  Jose's knowledge and experience as a guide was superb.  The barbel was an elusive fish and we had to stealthily stake the prey.  It was a fun and enjoyable day.  His bilingual skills made the day most pleasant and easy for this English speaking fisherman.  I look forward to my return visit."
