Review Policy:

While we are a retailer, we realize we do not currently sell all the products an avid angler will need. Therefore, we provide roundup reviews of products that we think our readers might enjoy or need that contain products we currently do not sell.  This always involves independently researching the products on the market and speaking with fishing experts for their opinions or first-hand experience with the item.  All of our writers are told to imagine that they are researching products for a close friend or family member – and keep that thought in mind throughout the process.

When we hire independent writers, we look for writers that are experts with the products being reviewed. If one of our staff writers has experience, we will sometimes allow another writer to do the initial work and have the staff expert critique and edit the final work.

Our writers are tasked with coming up with objective product characteristics for the entire category – and then judge the individual products on how they stack up versus one another.  Writers are only allowed to use price for purposes of relative value – we do not allow our writers to know the amount of how much of a commission FSE makes off any particular product.  Their job is to help you, the reader, pick the best fishing product for your needs.   

As much as is fiscally feasible, we will try to acquire actual physical products to give our hands-on experience to our readers.  If we purchase the item ourselves to review, we will mention it in the review. While it has not happened yet, if we were offered a review product for free, we will mention it in the article.

Affiliate Disclaimer:

FishSleepEat will receive a small commission (at no cost to you) for purchases by users following our links. These payments (along with sales of our products and advertising) allow us to continue to provide high-quality free content to you, our readers.  We will post a small disclaimer on each page where we may generate a commission to give you a heads up.  It will read something like the following:

FishSleepEat is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites. We also participate in other affiliate programs (such as WalMart) where we earn a fee when you purchase a product through our links. Amazon and the Amazon logo are trademarks of Amazon.com, Inc. or its affiliates. Walmart and the Walmart logo are trademarks of Walmart, Inc. or its affiliates.

To be clear, we only recommend products to you that we would recommend to our family and friends – but in case you think the small payments influence our decisions, we want you to know. We are looking to move to stocking and selling the majority of the products we recommend in the future.
