Leland on the Simms HardBite Vibram Sole Studs
Simms HardBite Vibram Studs are
a must-have wading accessory for the fly angler with rubber soled wading boots. Sometimes
you just never know what the river bottom conditions are going to like;
greasy moss, or slippery boulders. These studs screw directly into the custom receptacles on the Simms 360 degree StreamTread Vibram Soles to give you greatly enhanced traction in difficult wading conditions. You can use these studs in conjunction with the Simms HardBite Star Cleats
to customize a stud/cleat pattern for your soles. A hex nut driver is included with each kit so you can easily add, or remove, studs as needed when traveling. Why fall down when you can wade with greater confidence? Soles last longer and grip better. Don't leave home without em.

"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.
we're delighted to present the new zippered G4 Guide wader, the most
technical wader we've ever created. We're also proud to introduce the
two most competitive waders under two hundred dollars, the first
GORE-TEX wader for kids and a full arsenal of new clothing.
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 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?
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:
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."
