Simms offers Fed Nation special opportunity

CELEBRATION, Fla. — B.A.S.S. LLC, in partnership with Simms Fishing Products, announces a promotion offering B.A.S.S. Federation Nation members a special product opportunity.

Beginning Oct. 10, 2011, B.A.S.S. Federation Nation members will have the opportunity to purchase a Simms 2011 Tournament Suit for $499. B.A.S.S.-branded suits will be sold at this rate to Federation Nation members only. The red and blue GORE TEX® rainsuits will be offered in sizes medium to XXL. All suits will have custom embroidery of the B.A.S.S. logo on the back of the parka and on the front right pocket of the bib.

The Simms 2011 Tournament Suit is waterproof and breathable, seam-taped, and has three-layer GORE TEX® stretch fabric on the elbows, hips and knees. The suit features safety reflectivity, a fitted storm hood, hand warmer pockets and full-length, weatherproof leg zippers.

“This is a great opportunity for Simms to make the introduction into the B.A.S.S. Federation Nation while supporting conservation, which has always been a core value of our company,” said Simms Director of Marketing and Service Diane Bristol.

For every suit purchased, Simms will contribute $50 to B.A.S.S. for local chapter conservation funds. The check will be presented at the Conservation Summit at the 2012 Bassmaster Classic, which is taking place Feb. 24-26 out of Shreveport-Bossier City, La.

To purchase the suits, Federation Nation members can go to starting Oct. 10. The deadline for this special offer is Dec. 31, 2011, and order fulfillment is based on availability.

“I have worn the Simms Tournament rainsuit, and it is lightweight and breathable yet waterproof in the worst weather conditions. I am excited about this promotion for the B.A.S.S. Federation Nation members and am extremely appreciative of Simms commitment to our conservation efforts. This is a win-win for everyone!” said Don Corkran, director, B.A.S.S. Federation Nation.
