Once your selected destination and dates have been confirmed we will require a deposit to hold your reservation. Each lodge and each outfitter has different payment terms so deposit amounts, final payment terms and non-refundable amounts will be discussed with you when your reservation is confirmed.
In most cases services fees will not apply. In some cases, we may charge a service fee (for example, some custom trip bookings). We will always discuss if service fees will apply and what those fees are before incurring any fees on your behalf.
Direct bank deposit, certified cheque, Visa, Master Card
Each lodge and each outfitter has different terms regarding refund policies. We will provide this information to you with your reservation confirmation.
Travel insurance is an important part of your trip planning. Your travel insurance needs will depend on what insurance coverages you have with your home insurance, your employers’ insurance or other personal insurance policies. Review your coverages to assess your personal needs for travel delays, baggage delay, baggage loss, trip interruption, medical and emergency medical evacuation insurance, etc.
While airlines do everything possible to ensure your bags will arrive at your destination with you. Delays can happen. Trust us, we know. Always be sure that your carry-on includes a few items you need to be able to enjoy your vacation if your bags don’t arrive with you. Our carry-on bags are our boat bags and we ensure that the bag contains a set of wading clothes, wading boots, prescription medications, sunscreen, raincoat, sweater, sandals, some fly fishing gear, camera, etc. We also wear clothes on the plane that will be useful for our planned activities at our destination, just in case. Be sure that anything you pack in your carry-on is allowed as carry-on items on the airline that you are travelling on and at the time of your travel.
Once your reservation is confirmed and your deposit has been received we will provide you with a detailed pre-trip planning list so that when it comes time to pack your bags you will be ready to go!
We will email all invoices, itineraries and information to you. We are also available to talk to you and discuss any questions that you may have.
*In an effort to be kind to the environment, hard copies of invoices and itineraries will be mailed by special request only.

At On The Water Fly Fishing we practice Catch and Release for all of our fishing regardless of the regulations on the local fishery. That said, there is the option to keep fish at some of the destinations that we offer. If you wish to keep some of your catch that is your choice. Just be sure you will be able to prepare your catch (or have it prepared for you) to enjoy at your destination or that you are allowed to return home with your catch.
