Traveling to the Florida Keys, fly-fishing for Redfish in New Orleans, or heading to Mexico after Permit, you name it; we have probably all made this classic mistake: You pack your bags, remember to bring all your favorite fly rods, reels, new fly lines and tie up boxes of your own custom fly patterns. You think to yourself, yay I’m headed to the Keys, it will be so warm, none of this Colorado weather! I’ll just pack these couple shirts, my new shorts and this Buff, can’t wait to soak up the sun in The Florida Keys! Then a week later, your guide starts the engine to your skiff and BOOM off you go, only one minor problem to deal with…
You are wearing your favorite flats fishing shirt, new shorts and as your guide cuts through the marsh, you are freezing your ASS off! Fortunately, Simms Fishing Products has all the gear you need to warm up. We recently tested a pair of their Pro Bibs, and these babies will keep you warm and dry no matter what conditions Mother Nature throws your way.
Simms’ new 25 percent lighter ProDry™ Bib delivers enhanced storability coupled with advanced GORE-TEX® Pro Shell waterproof, durable performance. Large top-load thigh pockets include plier sleeves, and a zippered chest storage pocket is a safe-haven for everything from smartphones and car keys to line spools and nippers. A lower leg hem-lifter adjusts pant length to prevent cuff/heel drag on boat decks. And full length, 2-way leg zippers ventilate, while delivering appreciated entry/exit convenience.
It doesn’t matter whether you are packing for your next trip, trying to stay dry at the kid’s soccer game or attempting to still feel your fingers and toes in the duck blind, Simms Bibs are worth it! So don’t be caught with your guide snickering behind you on your next fishing trip, pick up a pair of Simms Bibs today.
