When it comes to American-made fishing gear and apparel that stands up to the
extremes of angling activities, nothing's better than Simms Fishing of Montana.
John Simms created the company known as Simms Fishing Products in 1980, after he
saw a lack of quality waders and other fishing accessories in the marketplace. Then in
1993, current owner, K.C. Walsh, acquired Simms and moved it out to Bozeman,
Montana.
Two months ago Simms launched an important initiative aimed to help conserve and
protect America's waterways. Dubbed Save Our Streams, the program will bring
awareness and raise donations for threats that face river in the U.S. such as mining
and pollution.
This spring Simms in continuing to deliver cutting-edge new products such as the
Riprap Sandals and Shoes. Currently Simms holds corporate, production, and
warehouse operations out of new 60,000-square-foot facility.
