FS/T Simms Backsaver Wading Belt

FS or Trade Simms Backsaver Wading Belt. Worn twice as I recall. First time I didn't like it. 2nd time things didn't change. It does not work with a long handled catch net shoved at the small of your back. That's the problem with it.

Would sell for $25 w/shipping included. $20 if you pick it up in Anchorage. I would prefer to trade for T-8 or T-17 material for making heads. Heck, I'm sure we can work out a trade for your favorite tube flies for it too. It should be around somebody and not sitting in a closet.

If you have a bad back and your lower back gets tires while fishing, this is worth a try. Not very fond of wearing it, but I can fish longer and more comfortably with it.

Belts

I have been using a Hodgman belt for years and the tighter I pull it the more miles I can walk. I would not even consider fishing without one for that reason and in case I go for a swim. The latter has happened more than I care to discusss. But, then again it might make a good winter thread as in "Our most memorable dunking".

Cheers, Bill

Has the belt been sold?

You can catch a lot of fish, and you can keep a lot of fish. But you can't do both very long. Jim Timmins

Belt not sold.

Working on a trade, but not the stuff I need or could use.

On a happy note, a friend landed a 37" rainbow Monday to cap a 100 fish day. Resident, not steelhead. About a foot across. Can't wait for Friday... snow, ice, short daylight, who cares...fish on!
