Simms G3 Stockingfoot Waders for 2014

I've been a professional fishing guide for over 30-years. I've worn every generation of G3 breathable waders and every generation of G3 Guide boots that Simms has produced. The rivers that we fish for steelhead are regulated that an angler can't fish from the boat. You have to wade fish. Beyond that they are noted to be some of the hardest wading on the planet. We test our gear on the Umpqua, Deschutes, Sandy & Clackamas; names that put fear into out-of-staters. A couple of months ago, I got my new Simms G3 Guide Boots (with Propeoseption) & new G3 waders. The new G3 waders are significantly different from previous models (check out the features listed below). This is by far the most comfortable wading system I have ever worn. Mark Bachmann
G3 Stockingfoot Waders Description
Powered by 25-percent more breathable GORE-TEX® 5-layer Pro Shell fabric, Simms’ G3 wader just got revamped for a lifetime of in-river marching orders. Wrap raw hands in the convenience of a reach-through warming pocket with stormflaps and micro-fleece lining, then reach for everything you need for successful fishing missions via an intuitive zippered chest pocket design, with integrated utility tabs that house an arsenal of in-river essentials. Patented front and back leg seam construction delivers an articulated fit that fights wear zones, bolsters wader longevity, and maximizes mobility either in the drift boat or hiking for riches well beyond road’s end.

Prom Dress Flies Full Set           Get A Lesson On How To Use Them!
Blue Blue & Copper Copper Fuchsia Purple
The Prom Dress Series of flies tied by Scott Howell has been around, but under cover, for several years. We first made them available in December, 2009. Mark landed a steelhead from the Sandy River with a Blue Prom Dress in the first hour of our initial test. Then they appeared in the widely acclaimed DVD Skagit Master II in January, 2011. What is going on now could be termed: "The Prom Dress Revolution" with many anglers buying them from us, and just as many tying their own. There is also quite a bit of innovation and new patterns emerging from steelhead anglers and guides such as the blue and copper version by Travis Johnson featured in the video below. The Prom Dress is here to stay and like the "Intruder" before it, is destined to be come a classic fly category.

Prom Dress, Blue/Copper
This version of the Prom Dress is the creation of Travis Johnson, who wanted to experiment with a color change on the lateral line. Most aquatic critters are dark on top and lighter toward the bottom. Because our home waters tend to be shallower than Southern Oregon Rivers, medium-weight, instead of heavy eyes are used. The fly has been very successful.

37-0812-02K Prom Dress Fly, Blue/Copper 2 3 for $10.50

Prom Dress, Blue
As a sport, fly fishing is the scientific exploration of the aquatic world with tools, which deliver information about game fish that no other equipment can render. Often this information is collected and the fish is released with a minimum amount of wear & tear. It survives to possibly be re-examined by someone else. Even the most experienced anglers are often reluctant to try to explain why anadromous salmonids will strike any fly while in fresh water. Nothing bright blue lives in the water with these fish. Maybe that's the key.

Prom Dress, Copper
It's pretty safe to say that nothing in a bright metallic copper color lives in the rivers with your intended quarry either. Yet, copper colored wobblers are known to be deadly at times, especially in tannin colored water.

Prom Dress, Fuchsia
What do they take this thing for, a cloud of blood, a pulsing squid, or something in their territory that makes them very angry? Fact is we have been told by a couple of fly fishers that are in the know, that this is the sleeper color.

PD-FUSCHIA Prom Dress Fly, Fuchsia 2

Prom Dress, Purple
When the light levels go dim, there are a great many things under water that turn purple. Maybe that is why purple is a such a successful theme in flies, because the color is so familiar.

    Tyler Kushnir To Perform
    At The Sandy River Spey Clave

    Saturday, May 17, 9:30 - 10:00 am at: Instruction Beach, Oxbow Park, Oregon


    Tyler Kushnir is a retired high school teacher from Delta BC, where he was also a very successful basketball coach. Tyler has been a fisherman as far back as he can remember. He is active in fish conservation and is Vice President of the Steelhead Society of British Columbia. Tyler has also been a moderator at Spey Pages for the past fourteen years.

    Tyler first picked up a spey rod in the early 1990’s…Those early seasons were indeed trying. The first quantum leap came when Dana Sturn brought the great Scottish caster Derek Brown to the Fraser River for a clinic.The next leap came shortly after Dana started Spey Pages and the two of them haunted the famed runs of the Thompson River. Through his involvement with Spey Pages, Tyler became friends with Nobuo

    Nodera and became the North American Pro Staff for CND. During this time with CND Tyler had a hand in developing a number of CND’s signature rods: the Thompson Specialist was first, followed by the Steelhead,Skagit and North Fork Specialists. While CND is no longer active in North America Tyler remains good friends with Nobuo.
    Over the past ten years Tyler has got involved in competitive spey casting and is a regular at Spey-O-Rama in San Francisco. During the first eight years of SOR Tyler finished consistently in the top 12-15 casters and one year made the top 10. Then at the age of 57 Tyler figured that competing with the young fellas was a bit of a stretch so he began to lobby for a 55+ division. Based on the spey caster demographic in North America this seemed a good idea and the Golden Gate Club that hosts SOR decided to add the Senior Division to the competition.The past 2 1/2 years have seen a significant growth in this division and it looks as if it will continue to expand. In 2012 Tyler won the Senior Division title and is eagerly practicing for the next opportunity! Last year Tyler was very excited to be asked to be part of the Next Cast Team and is benefitting from the truly great casters he gets to hang out with.

    Flashabou

    This is the original Hedron Flashabou in the big long packages, not some shortened up watered down copy-cat Flashabou sold at discount because it wasn't good enough to be sold any other way (you know, the stuff that beginners use). This is the stranded Mylar flash invented by Larry Dalberg.  It started a fly tying revolution, setting industry standards for every metallic flash product! It will not rust in saltwater and maintains almost neutral buoyancy. It is still the best flat strand Mylar available.
    FLASHABOU features marabou action for flies and lures. Super strong fiber won't
    matte as it swims and flows through the water, beckoning fish. Each package contains hundreds of strands-10" length.
