Policies and Process
Booking & Cancellation Policy
For Bookings Outside of 30 days:
We take a 50% booking deposit on all trips booked outside of 30 days from the first day of a scheduled trip. The remaining balance is due 30 days prior to the first day of a scheduled trip. Final payment must be received prior to services rendered. This deposit is refundable less a 10% processing fee for cancellations made outside of 30 days from the first day of a scheduled trip or a 100% credit can be carried for a future booking. Cancellations made within 30 days of the first day of a scheduled trip will result in full payment.
For Bookings Inside of 30 Days:
We take full payment up-front on all bookings made inside of 30 days from the first day of a scheduled trip. This payment is due at the time of booking. Cancellations made within 30 days of the first day of a scheduled trip will result in full payment.
For Online Bookings:
We take full payment up-front for all online bookings. All online bookings are subject to availability and confirmation by our outfitter. Guide trip fees are refundable less a $100 processing fee for cancellations made outside of 30 days from the first day of a scheduled trip. Cancellations made within 30 days of the trip will result in full payment.
For All Bookings:
Deposits are taken for all parts of a trip the Montana Angling Company accepts payment for. This includes, but is not limited to: guide trip fees, lodging fees, and other third-party fees. Lodging fees and other third-party fees are refundable according to the third-party’s booking and cancellation policy. Private Water Rod fees are non-refundable.
Changing the date you are booked is the same as cancelling and re-booking a separate trip. All cancellations must be given by written notice, either e-mail or by mail. The date a written cancellation notice is electronically received or postmarked will be considered the date of cancellation.
Trips may be cancelled at the discretion of the Montana Angling Company, its outfitter, or its guides at any time due to conditions that jeopardize client and/or guide safety, federal and/or state closures, or other uncontrollable circumstances. All guide trip deposits and funds will be refunded.
We make no exceptions to our booking and refund policy and encourage clients to purchase trip insurance with iTravelinsured if concerned about the possibility of cancellation.
We accept most major credit cards, checks, and cash for payment.
2022 Trip Bookings: We will be changing our booking policy for 2022 from a 30-day window to 60-day window for deposits and cancellations.
Booking Your Montana Fly Fishing Trip
Anglers can expect custom outfitting and personal service when booking a guided fly fishing trip with the Montana Angling Company. Our outfitter, Max Yzaguirre, handles all bookings personally and anglers will work with him to build a custom Montana fly fishing trip catering to personal preferences and requests. This could be a 10-day fly fishing adventure across all of the best trout water in Montana or a quick half-day trip to a local river, but our custom outfitting extends to all of our anglers and includes working with them to decide: where to fish, when to fish, how to fish, and where to stay.
We invite all anglers to contact us with any questions they have about our Montana fly fishing trips and guides. Our outfitter is always happy to talk fishing and assist anglers with their next Montana fly fishing trip.
