Some say if you learn how to catch fish in River San you will catch fish anywhere. Very much true indeed! The venue of the 2024 European Fly Fishing Championship is an extremely diversified water – a habitat for great majority of Poland’s fish species. From rapid waters in the upper stretch, a home to native brown trout, to the still water reservoirs of Solina and Myczkowce packed with salmonids, predatory and coarse fish, and then, right below the monumental dam, over to the tailwater with slow currents rolling on the flat rocky bed, offering most spectacular of hatches, not to mention the trophy size grayling. You need to have every fly fishing method in your arsenal to be successful. To many San is a dream, an ultimate goal, a gift from Heavens, the Holy Grail. Yet, at times, it’s but a curse – that’s when fish challenge you, making you go down to size 20 dries, using smallest of nymphs on the lightest of tippets. An urge to adapt, to change approach, to brainstorm, and try again. There are times that this does not help for the fish decide to count up the legs in the hackle of your fly before they finally turn down the offering, and never rise again. You think you’ve tested every fly, tried every trick, reinvented yourself, and then realize that you have been fooled and failed in the end. OK, enough about me…
This event is about YOU, the greatest fly fishing experts from the most prominent of fly fishing nations, and the greatest competitors in Europe. To many of you this will be your very first visit, some of you have already been here, whereas others keep coming back every now and then. Each fisherman will have their chance to enjoy some wonderful fishing, and we, the organizing team will take every effort to make you feel like home, hoping that some day you will return with your families and friends not only to fish, but also to explore the wonders of our picturesque region.

Tight lines!
