Ask a Gear Head – February 21st 2:00pm MST: Sponsored by Simms Fishing Products (online Facebook event)

Trout’s is stoked to bring back one of our most popular online events in partnership with Simms Fishing Products.  Do you have a burning gear or fishing related question that you need answered?  Or... are you interested in winning a Simms Hyalite Rain Shell?  Do you want to connect with a subject matter expert from Simms to ask questions about the new 2013 line?  All three? 

We thought you might.  Here is the deal: starting at 2:00pm MST on Thursday February 21st you can join the Trout’s Fly Fishing Facebook page and ask Rich Hohne from Simms and/our staff any fishing related question you might have by posting it on our wall. Simms and Trout’s will respond to your questions real time.  

We might have a few techy gear questions for our followers as well. Think you know all about Simms gear?  Join the event and you can win some cool stuff. 

Nothing is off limits - any question under the sun is fair game.

The angler with the most “compelling” (definition TBD) question at the end of the online session will win a brand new Simms Hyalite Rain Shell.  The prize will be announced immediately after the event at 3:00 sharp on February 21, 2012.

Here is what Simms has to say about their Hyalite Rain Shell:

From sea level to summit, lightning-charged weather has a knack for the dramatic. When it spits and snarls, keep it calm and comfortable in Simms’ waterproof/breathable Hyalite Rain Shell. Shell tech includes a YKK® water-resistant zipper with tough nylon components for massive water resistance and minimum corrosion over time. Throw on the three-point storm hood, cinch down adjustable Velcro® cuffs, and add a dose of action-adventure to the wet-weather melodrama.


  • Waterproof/breathable construction
  • YKK ® VT9 AquaGuard® VISLON® water-resistant zipper with Nylon components for maximum water resistance & minimum corrosion
  • 3-point adjustable storm hood
  • Adjustable Velcro® cuffs & zippered hand pockets
