We have only a couple weeks left to help conserve America’s last great salmon forest: The Tongass.
There are two key ways you can help. Both will take only a minute.
1.Add your voice today: If you have not done so already, please tell the U.S. Forest Service to modify the Tongass Land Management Plan so it conserves key areas for salmon and steelhead. Click here to act now!
2. Tell your friends: Take a moment to share the action page on Facebook.
We need anglers, conservationists, commercial fishermen and all salmon-lovers from Alaska and beyond to tell the Forest Service that key areas within the Tongass need to be managed for their exceptional fish values FIRST.
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.

“Salmon are part of the natural commons; they belong to all of us, and we have a shared responsibility to ensure their persistence. This collective responsibility can bring citizens of a community together for a common purpose.”
One of the great things about the evolution of our modern existence is the ability to connect with those near and far. Social Media has opened doors and created relationships that in the past, could have taken years to align.

The fish of a thousand casts. A legendary and ghost-like species that demands hours of patient and relentless pursuit. Fishing for days on huge rivers that look like they may not hold a single fish. For many anglers these are the images that come to mind when they think of steelhead….Read more Here.
Great write up today on H&H Outfitters in The Oregonian. Nothing better than seeing fresh new Fly Fishing companies getting the spotlight.
The likeness of rapper Ice Cube grinning in a life jacket under a spraypainted “Today was a good spey” would likely float right over most fly-fishermen’s heads. But for brothers Cobb and Alex Hudjohn, it’s just another slightly altered cultural reference tailor-made for a T-shirt.
Their unorthodox fly-fishing and screen-printing business, H&H Outfitters, has put the once-contentious brothers together in the same boat. Read More Here
