A Place in once for Tradition and Fishing Tourism.


My name is Wojciech Lopatka. I´m the founder of Salix Alba. The Salix Alba company was founded in 1989. We offers services in fishing tourism based mainly on the catch & release section of the Dunajec River since 2008. We organize seven-day holiday for fly and spin fishermen by providing comfortable accommodation, excellent food, transport, permits and a tour guide. Upon request we organize individual programmes, e.g. designed for families.

Apart from fishing, our education in geography allows us to offer a comprehensive presentation of the region for those interested in this field.

We want everyone to try traditional meals, listen to folk music, get to know local people and their customs. We believe that it is an important part of a successful holiday which is greatly appreciated by international fishermen.



Discover POLAND


Poland is not very known as a popular Fly Fishing destination but it offers a wide range of a wild population of different species, which are targeted by sports fishermen. 

The rivers Dunajec and San are my main home spots. This beautiful natural rivers are the jewels of the rivers for Fly Fishers in Poland. 

The most interesting place for fly fishermen is 12 km away from Kroscienko. Here, the Dunajec flows through a beautiful and deep valley with steep cliffs both sides. The passage in which the river flows between the cliffs is very diverse and creates wonderful and interesting areas for fishing where you can’t get bored.

There are many different spots to discover. Come and visit Poland for an unforgettable week of fishing and feel free to connect also to the cultural side of Poland.

The Salix Alba company offers your a trip to discover the country and a great fly fishing experience in the center of Europe. 

What our Guest says

After visiting the beautiful town of Krakow, I spent 2 days fishing on Dunajec river, near the Pieninski National Park area.

I was accompanied by my wife, and togheter we were guided by Mr. Wojciech Lopatka, a very kind and warm person, who took care of us this entire period.


My wife does not practice fishing, so Mr. Lopatka managed to keep her interest alive by offering some nice excursions in the region and also rafting on Dunajec.

This mountanous region offered us beautiful images, I can say familiar ,because myself was born and grow up in the southern part of the Carpathian Mountains. We discovered here, in this part of Poland, great resemblances with our home, this making us happy to be a part of one beautiful region, Central Europe. We want to thank the guide for being so carefull and warm with us, and we can tell for sure we`ll come again on Dunajec!
