These terms and conditions form part of the contract between Famous Fishing and the client named in the attached invoice and to all members of the client party and should be read carefully.

The invoice contains the terms of payment.  We reserve the right to charge interest at a rate of 8% above base per annum on all overdue accounts.

We go to every length to ensure that all details shown in all our advertising are correct. We cannot, however, accept liability if due to circumstances beyond our control, the facilities pictured or described are altered or withdrawn.

Cancellation by Client: 
In the event of cancellation by the client, the following scale of charges is payable:
Individuals and parties up to 4 will pay 100% of the cost if they cancel within 28 days of the booked day. We will however make every effort to re-let and in those circumstances we will refund 75% of the payment.
For parties greater than 4 in number the following applies: Prior to 60 days, 50% of total cost; 60 - 0 days 100% of total cost. Again every effort to re-let will be made and in such an event 50% of the payment will be refunded.

Alterations to bookings:
Cancellation charges as above may be payable for any part of a booking altered or cancelled by the client within 60 days prior to booked date.

Cancellation by Famous Fishing:
We reserve the right to cancel any booking. In such a case we will offer an alternative booking of similar value or a full refund of any monies received by us.

Curtailments and liability:
Neither Famous Fishing nor any person assisting it shall be liable for the consequences of delays or restrictions from adverse weather, obstructions, repairs or damage to navigational works, flooding, shortage of water, industrial action, fuel rationing, shortages of or non-availability of fuel or any other cause whatsoever and reserve the right to restrict the activity if unusual or hazardous conditions prevail.  

Neither Famous Fishing nor any person or company assisting or collaborating with it shall be held liable for the death, personal injury or illness of a client.

Health & Safety. We urge all who fish to wear protective eyewear to prevent accidents. Our experience is that insurance companies will not cover anyone who has not worn protective eyewear and medical advice cautions that eyewear should not be shared. Guests of Famous Fishing should make provision for their own medical needs.

Fishery rules. Each fishery has its own rules and regulations governing the handling, taking and returning of fish, the conduct expected both on the river bank and in huts provided for guests’ use, the removal of refuse, parking, safety, hours of fishing and other provisions. Clients of Famous Fishing should read these conditions and abide by them. Most of our fishing is up-stream dry fly and up-stream nymph only. Nymph is restricted on some waters.

Guides. Famous Fishing Guides/Instructors work from 10am until 6pm. If you require their services outside these hours then that is by prior negotiation and we would ask that you reward the Guide for additional hours in addition to any gratuity that you would normally offer. Our guide price does not include flies, leaders and statutory national rod licence.

Equipment or Goods sold by Famous Fishing.  Risk in the goods will pass to you on delivery.  Ownership of goods supplied shall remain vested in Famous Fishing and shall not pass to you until payment in full for all such items has been made. Equipment supplied during the day at the client’s request will be billed to the same billing address and to the same person as the invoice for the fishing.

Hired & lent equipment. All equipment hired or borrowed by our clients is covered by insurance for malfunction or accidental breakage. Any equipment not returned at the end of the day will be billed to the client at retail price.
English Law governs the Client’s contract with Famous Fishing and any dispute is to be settled in English Courts.
