Featured Image -- 4084

Bristol Bay Fly Fishing & Guide Academy

We are so excited to announce that the application period for the 2016 Bristol Bay Guide Academy is OPEN!

This summer, we’ll be at Mission Lodge learning the basics of fly fishing, outdoor safety, providing a great customer experience, learning about river ecology, and a whole lot more. We have a great crew of instructors lined up, and can’t wait to meet everyone out in the Bay!

Though the Academy is of course a great job training opportunity and a whole lot of FUN, it is also a key piece of working toward a future based on clean rivers, salmon and salmon-based jobs that we seek for Bristol Bay.

Creating jobs and leadership opportunities for Bristol Bay youth helps the local economy, keeps tourism jobs in region, and of course creates lifelong stewards of Bristol Bay’s many rivers. We can’t imagine a better intersection of these goals than the Academy.

We hope you’ll apply or…

MADE IN THE USA: Simms Fishing Products

header_made-in-usa2-2

 

A visit to the Bozeman, Montana Headquarters for Simms always gets us thinking, MADE IN THE USA.

MADE IN THE USA is a pretty powerful statement.  We get asked quite a bit about what we like most about Simms. As many of you know, we get the opportunity to visit Simms in Bozeman quite often.  The thing that resonates the most every visit is, MADE IN THE USA.

Each trip to the factory reminds us that every time I strap my waders on, somebody at Simms took the time not only to design and craft one of the most important tools in my gear bag, but also meticulously inspected and tested my waders before they got to my door.

Next time you head down to the river, give yourself a high five or a heel kick in your Simms waders.  Your investment in the best waders on the market not only keep you dry and comfortable but also supported a local business with over 100 employees who stand behind what they do living, fishing and working in Bozeman, Montana.

Andrew Grillos Fly Fishing: Global Perspective to Our Local Fisheries

1398317599251

From Colorado, Alaska, Washington to Chile, Argentina and New Zealand, Andrew Grillos has spent a few hours on the water guiding clients and putting a whole lot of fun in Fly Fishing.

For me, fly fishing has always been about having fun while in the outdoors.  Whether you’re an expert or have never touched a fly rod, I consider a day to be successful when we can have a good time on the water.  Whether it’s catching some fish, learning a thing or two, or just enjoying being the escape of being outside, these are all things that can make a guide day a success in my eyes.”
