Thread: Simms Freestone

  1. Default Simms Freestone

    Does anyone have any experience with Simms Freestone Waders? I am thinking about buying a pair for a back up because they are on sale at a fly shop near me. Any Tips on durability and overall preformance would be awesome.

    Thanks

    My brother in-law called me and told me about the sale also, I am guess at any store that carries Simms. Making room for the new models.
    I work the Freestone at the lodge. I liked them cause they are a light weight very comfortable wader. Seems the legs are a little thinner which I liked. They hold up fantastic!
    Thumbs up from me.

    and also, With thermals on, will i be okay wading in these during the winter?
    The water where I fish typically will not drop below 45 degrees or so.

    I think they do. I wear Body Armour but if real cold I wear Fleece Bibs over the BA. They block the wind, which is the real problem .......45! That's warm, LOL

    I also picked up some Freestones, at a very nice sale price, a few months ago. June I believe. I've worked them pretty hard this fall and have been very happy with them. Definitely will stay with Simms down the road.

    Joni...Lol, 45 is pretty warm, but I live in Kansas...uggh..worst trout state in the U.S. declared by me. I drive to southern missouri to fish the springs that flow there. Since the water is around 50 coming out of the springs, give or take 5 degrees during the summer and winter do to the air temps down river from the stream

    Our rivers run in the 30's weather, well in the teens for the next few nights. Maybe, single digits.

    45 is a good temperature for Huge Browns. Some brown trout in missouri can reach 40 pounds...AH WELL...my biggest is 7 pounds. The place were going to fish this weekend has a 15 pound brown as a record.
