It's funny how childhood memories can influence one's life! Just ask K.C. Walsh of Simms Fishing Products about the underlying theme of his company and its location. He'll tell you it was because his grandfather took him fly fishing in Bozeman, MT as a young man. Funny how what started as a desire by K.C. to work in the fly fishing industry, turned into the design of the world's best fishing waders. Funny how that vision of wader design transformed a company into one that now manufacturers what is considered by many to be the finest collection of fly fishing –outdoor wear in the entire industry. Funny? Not really. Just great concepts and a lot of hard work: Welcome to Simms Fishing Products!
At Leland Fly Fishing Outfitters, we carry and use only the best fly fishing gear. There’s not enough time in our hurried world to worry about whether our chest waders or rain jackets are going to leak. We talk with K.C. quite frequently and love to listen about his passion for developing the most useful and highest quality fly fishing gear. We at Leland have toured the Simms factory, attended their numerous product seminars, and vigorously used and field tested their equipment and we can tell you flat out; K.C. is doing it right!
Simms on the Striper Check Shirt
"It's a great looking shirt in a functional design combined with performance cotton."
Simms on COR3™
"Once you put on COR3™ clothing you’ll never give it a second thought. This next evolution in fabric technology has an UPF 30 sun protection rating, wicks away moisture and keeps you odor free on the water and out on the town. All of our shirts utilizing cotton or cotton blend fabrics also feature EZ finish, our easy care treatment built for wrinkle-free travel and minimal care – and right off the rack they feel like an old favorite you’ve been wearing for years.
Simms on Performance Cotton
"The cotton and cotton blend fabrics featured in our 2009 Sportswear Collection feature a European processing technology that makes cotton more comfortable and ideally suited for fishing. Most anglers prefer cotton and cotton blends for most activities where breathability, comfort, soft-touch and lightweight are important. In addition, recent studies show that performance features in natural fibers (cotton) such as moisture management, odor control and UV protection are important attributes for clothing intended for active use. Cotton is the single best selling fiber in America today, outselling all man-made fibers combined."

"Wherever you fish, you're going to find fishing guides
. And wherever you find fishing guides, you're going to find Simms. Guides need gear that is functional, innovative and can withstand whatever abuse
they put it through. What does that mean for someone who's not a professional guide? Anything that's designed to meet the performance needs of guides is gear you can count on. Simms. The choice of professional guides. And anyone else who lives to fish.
Simms is a fishing company. We have enjoyed success by staying true to the original vision of our company by building the highest quality products to keep our customers dry, comfortable and protected from the elements in any fishing conditions. We work with the very best materials suppliers in the world in our commitment to make high performance, technical clothing and outerwear.
We’re the only wader manufacturer in the US, and one of three worldwide that is licensed by W.L. Gore & Associates, Inc. to make GORE-TEX® waders. We compete through innovation and quality. Our staff is largely comprised of committed anglers who understand the importance of quality, dependable fishing gear. They use our products all the time, and contribute significantly to our continuous improvement efforts.
Why do professional guides choose Simms? Because we take pride
in what we make, and products have been designed to go the distance. Our in-house design team has a combined 50 years of experience
in making durable technical outerwear. We work closely with top material suppliers from around the globe, and continually test both our new and old products in the lab and out in the field to make sure we meet or exceed your expectations.
Nothing pleases us more than to see our products, like those on the guides featured in out catalog and on our website, go the distance.”
“The thrill of discovering a pristine stream after a long hike into the backcountry, the exhilarations of being on the flats on one of those incredibly clear days, the rush of a crisp morning on a British Columbia river when the steelies are running, these are the memories that keep us tying through the dark winter months, and always find us plotting our next angling season or weekend.
At Simms, we never forget that the goal of every committed angler is to stay on the water as long and has often as possible-regardless of the weather. That’s why we never stop looking for new ways to keep you dry and comfortable. Whether you’re waist deep in a drizzling snow on the Missouri or scouting the Keys in the sweltering heat of a June afternoon.
So for all those who will be out there earlier, longer and later, we’ve got just one thing to say: Your Gear is Ready”
“Simms. The Choice of Professional Guides Worldwide”.
Simms on Conservation
“IF YOU COULD PASS JUST ONE THING DOWN TO YOUR KIDS, WHAT WOULD IT BE?”
“Fishing is dependent on clean water, healthy ecosystems and just as important, people who care about conservation and resource preservation. It is the responsibility of everyone who enjoys angling to help protect and enhance our fresh and saltwater fisheries. After all, what greater inheritance would we leave future generations?
Supporting local, regional, and national conservation organizations is certainly an important role that angles can play in caring for our fishing resources. However, one area of vital concern, and one that all anglers can easily help do something about, is the spread of aquatic invasive species. These “hitchhikers”, including New Zealand mud snails, Didymo and whirling disease are having an enormous effect on rivers across the United States and are directly linked to reduced trout populations. Unfortunately, anglers are part of the problem, given that invasive species are spread by “hitchhiking” on waders, wading boots, drift boats, trailers and other gear.
YOU CAN HELP PREVENT THE SPREAD OF INVASIVE SPECIES IN THREE EASY STEPS:
1) Thoroughly rinse all fishing gear -including waders, boots, boats, and boat trailers- in clean freshwater upon leaving a water source. Never travel from one river to another without clean gear.
2) Air-dry gear before moving to another body of water.
3) Tell other anglers about this problem and what they can do to help.”
