Simms new Flyweight line

Simms has come out with a new line of gear designed for the adventure enthusiast. Made for lightweight minimal use on those long approaches to the water. We are excited to try some of this stuff out this summer and report back to you.

Mile High 25

It is that time of year again in Colorado. Flows are on the rise and now is the time to ditch your trout gear. Anglers All put on this fantastic event every year called the Mile High 25. It is a full weekend fly fishing competition. It challenges anglers to try to catch 25 different species of fish on the fly. I highly recommend this event. For more information see below.

What are you drinking this summer?

The guys overs at Simms and 10 Barrel Brewing have joined forces to create Reel Good beer. This is a summer ale that is light, crisp, and easy to drink. Perfect for a summer day on the water. Even better than the beer a portion of all proceeds goes to Trout Unlimited.

Gas Spill St. Vrain River

There was a huge gas spill on the St. Vrain River a few weeks ago. This is such terrible news because the St. Vrain has just recently started to come back to life after the terrible floods a few years back. Thousand of fish died due to this spill. We are hoping this fishery recovers again but this breaks our heart.
