Welcome To The Wading Room

We’re excited to launch our blog, and hope you will visit us often.

Welcome to The Wading Room!  We’re excited to launch our blog, and hope you will visit us often.  Our goal is to give you a place to discuss critical issues threatening our fisheries, take you around the world to exotic fishing locales and introduce you to techniques and gear choices that will help you get more out of fishing.  In addition, The Wading Room will provide glimpses inside Simms.  I am proud to lead a team of more than 100 that not only produce great products, but have amazing stories of their own.  We look forward to sharing more about Simms, getting your important product feedback and connecting with you in The Wading Room.

Since John Simms founded our company in 1980, Simms has had one simple goal – to keep anglers dry, comfortable and out on the water as long and as often as possible.  While we use some of the most advanced materials in the world, and have the last operating wader factory in the USA, our products work best when you don’t notice them at all.

We hope to see you stopping by The Wading Room often.  If you have any ideas on how to make it even better, let us know at wadingroom@simmsfishing.com.

    Thanks Simms. Your fingerless gloves are the only thing that keep my hands warm enough while still fishing.

    I would like to send an “AT-A-BOY” award to “Stillwaters Outfitters, Sunriver, Oregon.
    Mr. B. Still and staff provided a great experience in purchasing my very first SIMMS G4 Pro waders. They provided accurate sizing with feature information allowing me to make a wise purchase.
    I thank the SIMMS staff for producing a great product for we outdoor enthusiasts.
    Nice to see this venue created for we customers.

    GO NY GIANTS in Super Bowl 2012!
    Actually, I don’t care which team wins just a good exciting outcome.

    This is a very good step for SIMMS.  It should put you in immediate touch with your customers and keep us informed of the direction you are taking with your products.  As a long time SIMMS customer I have agreat appreciation for the quality and continued improvement process of your company.  It will also allow me to give you direct feedback, good and bad, allowing for potential improvements.

    Always love your products and have used them for years. They are the best! 2012 in Alaska is the year of no felt sole boots, between fishing and hunting the rain forest of S.E. Alaska I hope to see a deep air-bob sole or close to it. Just a thought. Keep up the good job.

    Way to go on the new forum guys. I am fairly new to fly fishing but I’ve quickly learned the difference between some companies. More companies need to learn from your example of customer service. Also way to stay true to your roots and continue making a quality product in America. It would be nice to see more of your products made here.

  • Fred Telleen

    Welcome to the blogging world.  I’m looking forward to following along.  Just added your RSS to my website at mysticwaters.com  See you at Ice Out!

  • Love the SIMMS crew!! A special props to the Guide Desk & Customer Care Center!

  • Jackfaulkinbury

    great idea guys I am excited.

  • Shared this with Peter Vandergrift, so I figured I would let the wading room see it too! Caught 2-1-12 with client Kieth Herzongenrath.

  • Harold Saxby

    I have been using your products since the early 90’s and the way you back up your products is outstanding. From repairing a large tear in the  seat of a new pair of waders to replacing a pair of wadings boots you felt were defective,  I can’t says enough good about your products and service.

     Thanks to the Kingfisher Fly Shop and both Jim and Matt my wife is dressed from the top of her head to her feet in Simms products.

    Keep up the good work.

    Very excited about this great idea guys!!

  • Richard

    I’m looking forward to buying your new SIMMS felt wading boots! I purchased the Guide Boots, and added the StarBite cleats–but honestly, in rushing rivers such as the Deschutes, and McKenzie, nothing is as safe & stable as felt bottoms. 

    I’m looking forward to many articles and discussions from your new blog!

  • Rick

    Thanks Simms for all your great products! Good luck with the move into your new facility .. Everyone is excited for you and that you will continue to remain in Bozeman!

  • Shug

    After I bought G3 Guide waders & boots three of my friends decided Simms is the best. I’ll pass on the blog info to them. Your customer service is #1. Made in the USA says it all.
