CURTAILMENTS AND LIABILITY

HEALTH AND 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 Dryflyfishing Ltd should make provision for their own medical needs.
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 Dryflyfishing Limited should read these conditions and abide by them. Most of our fishing is up-stream dry fly and up-stream nymph only. Dryflyfishing Limited Guides/Instructors work from 10am until 6pm. If you require their services outside these hours then that is by 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.
All Guides / instructors must be hired through Dryflyfishing Ltd. Freelance fishing guides are not allowed on our waters.
Please ensure the Client and all members of the client party have read the risk assessment.

Risk in the goods will pass to you on delivery. Ownerships of goods supplied shall remain vested in Dryflyfishing Limited 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.
All equipment hired 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 at retail price.
