New wading boots, sportswear and an expanded women's line give Simms the deepest product line in fly fishing
Simms, the only manufacturer of GORE-TEX® waders in the U.S., has long had a product line unparalleled in the fly-fishing industry. The line gets stronger, deeper and even more diverse in 2011.
“The entire Simms team has really taken our entire product line to the next level,” said K.C. Walsh, president of Simms. “Not only are we updating some of our rock-solid standbys, but we’re also bringing innovative, thoughtful new products that address the needs of anglers in a wide range of fresh or saltwater fishing conditions.”
Highlights of Simms’ 2011 product line include:
* Three new GORE-TEX® footwear pieces. The Pursuit GORE-TEX® Shoe Mid and Low and the Harbor GORE-TEX® Shoe are designed for comfort and style both on and off the water. The shoes feature GORE-TEX® membrane, non-marking Vibram® outsoles and OrthoLite® memory foam sockliners for superior comfort.
