Photo Use Guidelines
Gear.Info has several hundred pictures online, with more always
on their way. Best of all, you are welcome to use these
pictures for your own non-commercial
web site provided the following guidelines are met.
Step 1 : Credit
and Link Back to Fly Fishing Gear.Info
When using any picture or photograph from Fly Fishing Gear.Info,
a link back to our web site MUST be placed next to/below the photo.
An example of this would be :
Photo Courtesty of Fly Fishing Gear.Info
The code for the hyperlink is as follows:
<a href="http://www.flyfishinggear.info">Fly Fishing
Note : The listing does not have to appear right by the photograph
if it would mess up your page. Thus, if you want to use a photo
for part of your logo or some other creative use, simply contact
us to work out an arrangement.
the photos shown on our site are "small" photos. We have the
larger, original images should you need a larger image (plus
a bunch of other images not shown on this site).
Step 2 : No
"Hot Linking" of Images!!
MAY NOT be "hot linked" from our web
site. Hot linking involves copying the url of the image and then
it into your own web site. What happens then is that when your
web page loads, the picture you are using is then called from OUR
server, not yours. Our web logs will clearly show when any
image is being hot linked to. If we find a image that is being
hot linked, we will either change the path of the image (resulting
in a broken link on your web page) or substitute a photo that you
probably do not want on your web site!

own site use.
3 : To properly
copy an image, do the following on a Windows computer. Right click
over the image and "save as", saving
the photo to your local computer. Name it what you like and insert
If you have a commercial site or want to use our pictures for
a commercial purpose, don't just copy the image, hoping we won't
find out. We will! Using our images
without permission is also illegal and may result in getting your
web site banned by the major search engines due to copyright infringement.
When we discover an illegal use of our images, we notify all major
search engines about copyright infringement (which is easy to prove
since we have the original images), which may result in your site
being dropped from Google and Yahoo. We will also send a cease
and desist order to the owner of the domain name as determined
by WHOIS information.
If you would like to use one of our pictures on your commerical
site or for a commercial purpose, simply contact
us. Most likely,
we will let you use an image for free, following the guidelines
above (depending on what you want to use the image for, of course).
In your email, just let us know what you want to use the image
for and where you will be using it.
