Simms has been supporting Warriors and Quiet Waters Foundation, hosting each of the organization’s week-long Fishing Experience (FX) trips to Montana during the fishing season. Each warrior is outfitted with a selection of Simms gear and is given a tour of Simms’ wader manufacturing facility.
“To witness the power of fly fishing on these true American heroes is breathtaking,”
says K.C. Walsh, Simms President. “We hope the fishing community will embrace this special product offering because its story is much more important than just staying warm and dry.”
The special edition wader will remain on sale until all inventories are gone. In total, the offering is attempting to raise $100,000 for the organization. Anglers can see the wader at www.simmsfishing.com or at select special retailers across the U.S. For a complete list of retailers, visit www.simmsfishing.com/wqw.
“When a company like Simms came to us with this idea, we were so excited about the national outreach potential,” says Faye Nelson, Executive Director, Warriors and Quiet Waters. “Knowing that each wader purchase will go directly towards helping more warriors make positive change in their lives is very special.”
So you can give back any many ways to help our wounded veterans. Please consider giving to Warriors & Quiet Waters or take Simms up on their generous offer and enjoy one of the best waders on the water while helping our veterans at the same time.
Either way, it will feel good to give back to those who continue to sacrifice so much for our freedoms.
Thanks to all Veterans!
