We will do everything in our power to insure a fun trip for your party but as a small business we need to operate under these rules of the contract. ,We promise to be fair but this is a business and prime dates can't be made up.
Contract As an angling client I agree that:
1)These types of businesses can only operate if dates and deposits are positive.
2)Confirmed trip dates are held by a 50% deposit per angler or full payment. Schools are prepaid and deposits are good for 1 year from the date of purchase. All contracted monies are redeemable for a full calendar year under the following restrictions: A total refund minus a $35 service fee will be charged for all trips & schools after the first 48 hours of purchase. (A) Refunds are not available within 30 days of your trip unless conditions are unfishable. Grande Ronde trips are to be paid in full 45 days before the expedition date.
Before each trip a Client will read, sign, understand and accept the release and hold harmless agreement
3)If a angler can't make a booked trip the angler is responsible for his/her replacement outside the grace period, or forfeit the monies. If the client needs to reschedule before the 30 days of the local trip or 45 days for a non-local trip (G.R.), most of the time we keep the $ for a different fishing trip within a calendar year or issue a refund minus a $35 service fee. (Some good dates just can't be rebooked in time to make them up). Deposits on trips or classes are good for 1 calendar year from the date of purchase.
4) I understand Dickson Flyfishing will confirm the date availability and that only my deposit will hold my date. Should, in the guides decision, the waters become unfishable, prior to the outing your nonrefundable deposit will be transferred to another open date within a calendar year.
Should I the angler organize a group clinic. I am advised to have each member send their own deposit/money or I will collect payments from each member, before the excursion. (Schools are prepaid) If I send a trip deposit for more anglers than myself, I am responsible for the each angler deposit, should that angler not attend.
A trip terminated by the Fishing Guide due to the bad weather, once fishing has commenced, will not be entitled to a refund if the fishing party agreed to begin the fishing trip.
5)The Fishing Guide shall not be held liable for any injury or fatality that is caused by either direct or indirect action of any member of the fishing party.
Travel insurance is something you may want to consider. An experienced angler knows that the best-
planned trip can be impacted by the unexpected, that’s why we recommend Travel Guard Travel Insurance to
protect your financial investment. This valuable protection covers trip Cancellation for any reason. It is reasonably priced. To purchase this insurance or learn more please visit or call 1-800-826-1300
