Last week we asked for photos of kids fishing in our ongoing Simms photo contest and plenty hit the inbox. Though any photo of a kid on the water is a winner in our book, for contest purposes a favorite had to be chosen, and that favorite is the photo below, shot by Tiffany Beckman. “This photo has everything,” says Rich Hohne, one of the judges at Simms. “It’s a nice sunny day, it shows camaraderie on the water and there’s a pink fishing rod!” Congrats to Tiffany for winning a new pair of Simms Pursuit GORE-TEX shoes . You are also now in the grand-prize running for a pair of Simms G3 Guide waders and your photo displayed on

This is the final week of the contest before Simm’s announces the grand prize winner, so it’s your last chance to snag a pair of Simms Pursuit GORE-TEX shoes. Of course, we’ve saved the most challenging mission for last. This week’s topic is underwater. Now there are lots of relatively inexpensive underwater cameras out there these days, so let’s see some cool fish release shots, fight shots, flies underwater…anything goes. Shots taken from above the surface that capture something below count, too. Email your underwater photos to and check back next Tuesday (Monday is a holiday) to see if you won in the final week of competition. All underwater photos must be received by midnight on May 30th.
