Simms Joins Forces with Montana Freshwater Partners to Repair and Restore One of the State’s Most Vital and Iconic Watersheds
In early June of 2022, a combination of an unusual atmospheric rain event and warm overnight temperatures coincided with Montana’s peak runoff, resulting in a devastating 500-year flood event. Due to the catastrophic flood, all five entrances to Yellowstone National Park closed, thousands of park visitors were evacuated, bridges, houses, and roadways were completely swept away leaving millions of dollars in damages behind, and years of rejuvenation ahead.
To the residents of southwest Montana, the Yellowstone River is not only a vital economic resource, it’s an ecosystem that’s essential to their way of life.
Regarding the damage and destruction, Simms immediately leaned into to their longstanding heritage of making waders and embarked on a partnership project conceived to generate significant funding support towards a campaign designed to revitalize the iconic Yellowstone ecosystem.

Building on the success of fly fishing’s Stimmie Awards, Fly Fusion Magazine has introduced a new awards program aimed at the international fly-tying community.
The all-new Stimmies On the Fly awards program will recognize top emerging fly tiers, amateur and professionals alike. We want to see the best of the best in fly tying on video. Top submissions should feature an innovative pattern, technique and/or material presented in a creative video format with a mind towards educating the viewer.
The top 10 fly-tying videos will be selected by an internal committee and then be open to voting from the angling and fly tying community. The creator of the winning fly tying video will take home “bragging rights,” $1,000 and a feature story in Fly Fusion Magazine.
So, hop on over to flyfilmfest.com/stimmies to enter. Entries will be accepted until October 14. Good Luck!
