Terms and Conditions for Southern Rivers Fly Fishing 

Booking Policy 

Booking in advance is highly recommended to ensure the opportunity to experience world-class fly fishing and to avoid the disappointment of guide unavailability. Season bookings do fill fast, particularly for the months from January through to April.

Bookings require a 30% deposit. Deposits are to be paid within one week of the client receiving their deposit invoice. (Accommodation deposit may also apply).

Payment methods to confirm bookings include – Bank transfer, Visa, MasterCard, cheque or cash. Credit Card payments will incur a 4% surcharge.

Cancellation Policy

Trips cancelled before the 1st October (beginning of the applicable fishing season) will receive a 90% refund of the deposit amount.

Trips cancelled on or after the 1st October (beginning of the applicable fishing season) deposits are non refundable. 

Trips cancelled by the client within 2 weeks of the trip’s commencement date will require full payment (100%) of the day rate for the number of days cancelled.

A trip may be cancelled within 48hrs of trip commencement under severe weather conditions where client safety and comfort is an issue, or there are no viable fishing options available due to extreme weather conditions. This is at the discretion of both guide and client (this is incredibly rare). In the case of a trip being cancelled due to severe weather 50% of the day rate will be refunded. Trips will be rescheduled where possible.

If a day of guided fishing is cancelled by a client through no fault of the guide then the full day rate will apply for that day. Any subsequent days that are also cancelled for the same reason will also incur the full day rate.

* Please note that the deposit total is made up of 30% of the total for the guided days booked. You will be notified if a deposit is also required for accommodation.

*Please note that the final balance is to be paid at the completion of the trip and may vary in accordance to any changes of trip details, but only with the authority of the client. For example, meals, accommodation, fishing licences, heli or boating costs not covered by the guide fee, or any reduction in fees due to unforeseen circumstances like extreme weather.

Bank transfer is the preferred method of deposit payment. All international bank transfer fees must be paid at the time of transfer or alternatively they will be recovered upon duration of trip. Please use your surname as a reference on the transfer payment. Contact me to discuss alternate options if this is not your preferred payment method. Once the deposit is paid in full an official confirmation of the booking and details will be sent to you. 

Special Covid-19 Conditions:

As the world works through the Covid-19 Pandemic, normal booking policy applies.

Bookings that are directly effected by the Covid-19 virus are eligible to be transferred to the following season with no fees incurred.  If the trip can not be undertaken the following season then standard T&C’s apply to the deposit at the time of cancellation. Bookings cannot be transferred any further out than the following season.
