Top-water frog & popper hits, underwater footage of largemouth bass – this video is a display of the aggression that Northwest bass can have.

The Columbia river is host to huge range of fish species. Large runs of chinook & coho salmon, trophy steelhead, largemouth and smallmouth bass…the fishing is year round. In this Fishing Addicts film we went out in Washington, looking for big adult largemouth bass.

These jigs are great in water that has bait restrictions or also just to use for faster easier fishing. Not having to switch your bait out every 5th or 6th cast makes these jigs impressive.

Gear Review: Simms G3 Guide Stockingfoot Waders

Waders take bank fishing to the next level. At least they should.

Simms G3 Guide Waders

Bank fishing for Steelhead and Salmon can be very demanding. Many small river fishermen go to great lengths to access the right water. For these fishermen, the ability to depend on waders is essential.

Many fishermen experience the “buy-cheap waders until they leak and repeat” routine all too often. Easy prey due to rock-bottom price tags, the cheapest of waders do the bare minimum – keep you dry at first. That may be enough for some as not everyone fishes on a habitual basis. If you do bank fish on a habitual basis, the benefits of high quality wading equipment becomes very apparent.

Simms G3 waders emphasize mobility for bank fishing. At approximately 45 ounces they pack the power of Gore-Tex® in a surprisingly light package. Highly breathable, they feel sturdy and agile. Putting them on is a dream as they are comfortable and sleek.

The seam design developed by Simms gives the angler full range of motion and makes walking, wading and climbing all the more accessible. As I had formerly worn cheaper nylon and neoprene waders before my G3′s, the difference was unmistakable. The breathability, range of motion and sturdy construction make putting on G3 waders exciting. They take the headache out of leaky, cheap wader experiences. I fish rocky rivers over a variety of terrain – these waders were designed for those that put their gear to the test.

Winter fishing in cold-water was comfortable simply by wearing proper layering underneath. Hot summer temperatures won’t keep you off the water either unlike other waders can (Neoprene wader owners ever have this experience?)

Easy snaps & high quality adjustable suspenders.

The front pocket design makes for efficient storage of essential items. I always keep a small assortment of things in the front of my waders – usually leader, pliers, maybe my keys and wallet. The zippered front pocket allows for secure storage of the more valuable items, while the “hand-warming” pocket does an excellent job at keeping its contents secure by way of storm flaps and warm micro-fleece. I’ve yet to lose anything out of that pocket due to the smart design. The inside zippered pull-out pocket is the perfect place to store spools, pens, and other items needed at hand.

Efficient storage with nothing unnecessary.

One of the biggest benefits of the G3′s is that they stand up to more use. The Gore-Tex® 3-layer system provides protection against sticks, rocks and other hazardous material. For those that walk small trails and navigate rough bank this is one of the most important factors. There is nothing worse than buying a set of waders that starts leaking at the first sign of trauma. Of course, care still needs to be taken not to provide unnecessary damage, but the G3′s hold up very well to the type of demanding fishing salmon & steelhead fishermen do.

If a large part of fishing is putting the right odds together, Simms G3 waders do more than their part. The advantages come in mobility, range of motion, comfort and efficiency. More time to focus on fishing.

Maybe not every fisherman needs these waders. Maybe if I only fished twice a year I would just get any old set and be happy. But I don’t only fish twice a year. I fish a lot.

The G3′s ultimately exceeded expectations while holding to Simms reputation as a manufacturer of high quality, high-use gear. I have no doubt that you will be impressed by these waders. The initial investment pays for itself due to an extended life that lower quality waders simply won’t have. For those that take their fishing seriously – these waders should be considered. These waders take bank fishing to the next level!
