Here is a quick summary, which in no way substitutes for reading the entire Agreement:

1) We help travelling anglers find new places to fish and we provide them where-to-go information on local fisheries designed to facilitate their enjoyment of those fisheries and succeed in their quest to catch fish. All information provided is based on the facts available to DIYFishing at the time it was posted. Though DIYFishing works hard to verify, update, and constantly improve all posted where-to-go information, it cannot and does not guarantee the accuracy, efficacy, or timeliness of any of the directions and recommendations posted on this Website. DIYFishing assumes no responsibility for any losses of time, any damage to equipment, any injury, any illness, or any death that might proceed from acting on any of the where-to-go information posted on this Website.

However, we are not a travel or real estate agency or a purveyor of any kind of fishing-related service or product. When you inquire about or book a service, or arrange a vacation rental, or purchase a product described, listed or advertised on this web site, you will be dealing with those purveyors or service providers directly on any and all matters, including refunds and cancellations.

3) We collect guest reviews from anglers who visit areas we write about and who stay in vacation rental properties we advertise. If you submit a review, we’ll protect your privacy and we will have the right to publish and use your review.

4) We list vacation rental information. If we include information about vacation rentals you manage or own, you agree that you’ll provide us accurate information about your rentals, your guests and you give us the right to publish and use this information.

5) We protect our brand, content, website and users. If you trying to hurt us or our users, it’s prohibited, and we limit our liability from and disclaim the bad things you may do.
