Hey everybody, it has been a while since today at Jimmy’s has been updated, but with things starting back up in the shop look for a lot more updates on this page. First off for those who don’t know, we have started our free fly tying demonstrations that will be held every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Dave Brackett tied this past week and did an awesome job, this week we have Dennie Edwards tying who is back by popular demand. Dennie ties some great flies so be sure to come check him out this Saturday.
Second, we are starting to see some new product trickle in from various manufacturers and there is some seriously good stuff showing up. Today I wanted to highlight a new product from Simms. The new shirt is the GT Tri-comp long sleeve fishing shirt. This is a HI-Tech shirt and Simms has pulled out all the stops on this piece. The Gt top perfectly blends the traditional button up fishing shirt with the newer performance fishing shirts and manages to make it look good in the process. This will be THE shirt for summer fishing or any saltwater destination trip you may be planning to get you through the winter. This shirt caught our eye at the IFTD in Las Vegas this year and even brought home a few awards from the show. Here is a little more information on this great new shirt by Simms
