Photo Use Guidelines

Fly Fishing 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 Gear.Info</a>

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.

Additionally, 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!!

Images MAY NOT be "hot linked" from our web site. Hot linking involves copying the url of the image and then inserting 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!

See the next step to learn how to properly copy a photo for your own site use.

Step 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 it into your web page. That's it.

Other Information

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.

Thank you for following these guide lines regarding using the quality pictures found at flyfishinggear.info
