New for Simms this fall are some exciting new products that we all use and love.  Simms decided to pursue this Lodge Line to further the branding of the Simms name and offer us, the consumers some really cool products that we can use on the river, at the camp site or in the office.

Included in this line-up are super cool Simms/Wheatley Fly Boxes that come in Simms Orange or a Derek DeYoung Trout Print.  These are real Wheatley boxes with slit foam in the top and bottom of the box for added durability that will also protect your flies. Simms also introduced a Molded Foam Fly Box series that are lightweight, float if dropped in the river and will accept the C&F Designs inserts so you can interchange your flies for different rivers.  One of the coolest Molded Foam boxes in the line-up is the Patch Box that will attach to any Simms vest, pack or waders that has a Velcro patch. You can then attach a Simms Super Fly Patch to the outside of the box to dry your flies before re-inserting them back into the box. 

Also in the Lodge Line line-up are the new Simms humidor that come in Simms Camo and DeYoung Brown trout prints.  This is a handy little item for the angler who like to enjoy a cigar on the river as they will stay nice and moist until you are ready to light up.  Let’s not forget the new Simms Cigar Cutter to trim the end of the stogie and the Simms Windproof Butane lighter to get things going.  With all that fun going on, let add a little fuel to the fire with the Simms Flask offered in a rubberized black finish or a DeYoung trout print to take that tasty beverage along for the end of a great day on the river or a little nip in the middle of the day when the going gets tough. 

We all like to fish early and late and Simms has got us covered when we need a little light on the subject.  The new Simms LED light offered in trout or tarpon, this little item will definitely brighten up your early morning or late evening adventure.  When not on the river, have a little fun in the house or at a party shining this on the wall as this little LED will project a Simms fish or Simms tarpon on the wall.  Now that’s a party in itself!!!

We all love cold hard cash but carrying it in style is another thing.  Some cram it in a front pocket, others use a cool trout print money clip while most use that awful leather wallet from a major department store.  Simms to the rescue in this department with the new G3 Guide Wallet.  Made out of old waders and trimmed with leather, you can now carry that dollar bill in style, your library card or whatever you like to carry in a wallet.

For you early risers that cannot get the day started without that super dark cup of joe, Simms has a mug for you.  The Early Riser Mug will hold up to 450ml of straight “joe” or a little concoction of Bailey’s and “joe” to ease that pounding headache from the night before.

Last but not least, we all need a good bottle opener for the garage, boat, camper or right next to the fridge in the house.  There is nothing more frustrating that fumbling through the drawer trying to find a bottle opener and ending up banging it on the counter and leaving a nice chip in the granite that is a real bitch to repair.  Simms has a solution called the Workbench Bottle Opener that mounts to just about any surface with two screws and will open thousands of those tasty beverages we all love.

This new line from Simms is pretty exciting and we are sure that most anglers can find a use for at least one of the products if not two or three.
