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.

american-flag

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.

This past week we saw some awesome new products come out of ICAST-IFTD 2014.  Simms Fishing once again stole the show with 7 “Best of Show awards”.  This follows the performance from 2013 that awarded Simms 5 ‘Best of Show’ awards.

Hard to argue that Simms is the prevalent brand in Alaska, both for Specialty Retailers, Professional Guides and Lodges.  The quality, durability and design keep Simms as the preferred choice for professionals in Alaska.  2015 no doubt will continue the brand’s dominance not only in Alaska but the lower 48 waterways as well.

Below is a quick recap of the new products from Simms that garnered the awards and the dates they will be available through your local Simms Specialty Retailer.
