Simms Fishing Products was started in 1980 by John Simms, a well-known and respected fishing guide and outfitter in Jackson, WY. A creative guy and talented artist, John wanted to enhance the fishing experience by developing better waders and accessories. Simms was the second company in the world to introduce neoprene waders in the mid-eighties, which is when the company really started to take shape. At that time, Simms was purchased by a division of Life-Link International in Jackson, WY, and the brand continued to progress.
In 1993, K.C. Walsh, a passionate angler and entrepreneur, acquired Simms and relocated the business to Bozeman, MT. Walsh had grown up in a fly fishing family and developed a passion for angling at a young age, mostly fishing the Eastern Sierra of California. It was his life-long dream to live in Montana.
The same year that Walsh acquired the company, Simms introduced breathable waders in a pioneering effort with W.L. Gore & Associates (makers of GORE-TEX® fabric) that changed the face of fishing waders and opened up new possibilities for the sport.
Although Simms has grown and evolved over the years, their vision remains the same - to build the highest quality products to keep our customers dry, comfortable and protected from the elements in any condition.
At Simms they consider every possible demand put on the waders. That means designing legs that move as an extension of yours and building in an ease of use that allows you to layer up or down under the waders without inpacting your range of motion. Simms have removed seams from hig wear areas to avoid abrasion and done away with fabric bunching by offering the widest range of sizes to ensure every body shape a superior fit.
