Five weeks have come and gone in our Simms Photo Contest. There were over ****500 total entries, many of which proved that the photography skills of F&S readers really shines. But it all came down to the five finalists in this gallery. The grand prize winner, however, is Joe Cantrell of Oregon, who submitted the photo below in the “Landscape” ****category.


Here’s what Simms had to say about the photo: “Joe’s shot captured one of the main reasons we like to fish–to be awed by the beauty of a river and surrounding landscape.

Congrats, Joe on a photo well taken. You’ve got a new pair of Simms G3 Guide waders headed your way, and you will be able to see your photo displayed at **** very soon. Thanks again to all who entered.
