The goals of our sites (www.flygearandgifts.com and www.flyfishingfieldguides.com) are to share travel blogs and ideas, fly fishing expertise and recommendations, fly fishing gear and gift ideas, to be as objective open, and forthright as possible, at all times no matter what travel location or product is being reviewed.

We believe in full disclosure and work hard to disclose any relationships every time we make a suggestion or recommendation. As the site grows it will, have multiple reviews on various locations, products, books, ebooks, gear, gifts, etc.

This notice is to highlight some of  relationships, the ways site gets compensated, as well as the results, suggestions, and recommendations we sometimes discuss.  Any recommendations we make are based first and foremost on objective evaluation, and our opinion of value.  No products have been received free of charge, we make all evaluations and recommendations based on our own purchase, knowledge, interviews of other subject matter and knowledgeable people, or indirectly via research of other persons reviews.  No advertiser influences the content on our Websites or Blogs.

Sometimes our suggestions, references, evaluations, or recommendations include links, also known as affiliate links, to products for which I may receive some kind of compensation.  If you prefer, instead of using our links, then you may perform a search for the product and visit the website directly.  Most times, my compensation arises from you “clicking on a link” from our Websites and Blogs. Therefore, if you visit the website on your own, we will not be compensated.  There may exist some exceptions to this policy depending on the way each company tracks their affiliate referrals.  Some affiliate links (or banner ads, or other forms of links) may be added automatically with the help of software, which links specific keywords within the content dynamically. Others are added after the post is written. In other words, some affiliate links are added incidentally or subsequently.

Some links do not have any affiliation or compensation whatsoever, but are included for the same reasons described above, because we believe they represent potential value or interest to our readership.

Testimonials on our Websites and Blogs may highlight positive and sometimes extraordinary outcomes achieved under unique circumstances.  We do not guarantee any result or outsome based on your decision to purchase or use products or services we may refer you to, which are not “one-size-fits-all” and represent a wide variety of products and ideas. Therefore, it is impossible for anyone to predict how, or even if, you will use the information provided.

As with every personal or business venture, there’s inherent risk. You even stand a chance to lose money. So please use discretion when making a purchasing decision.  All testimonials and case studies, are the opinion of the author, and each has submitted their information willingly.

Sincerely, www.flyfishingfieldguides.com and www.flyfishingfieldguides.net
