Simms Wading Staff

Simms Wading Staff


Simms Wading Staffs are the gold standard when it comes to safely wading any river. The aluminum shaft is rock solid and lightweight so you can mount it on your wading belt and forget about it until you need it. It deploys easily and quickly while featuring a retractor so you can let it trail in the current when you want to make a cast. The printed depth gauge on the shaft is a welcome addition for assessing how deep you’re wading.
