  1. According to Simms’ size chart, it is 33”-34”
  2. Brand new pair of Simms Guide Classic waders, size Medium, never worn at all. Will let them go for $375, would prefer not to ship and have them picked up in Portland, ME, but willing to if buyer covers cost. Would probably trade for something that’s of equal value and cool/useful to me if something comes along. I can get pictures if necessary, but googling Simms Guide Classic Waders will give much better pics than I’ll ever take (I’d post a link but I think that’s against the rules).
  3. Closed. Going to fly fishing thread.

  5. I fish Maine and live here and would not recommend coming. Go to the cape, more species and always better fishing.
  6. I do agree with you and always have, however, I was recently told something that made me think. Well, it didn’t make me change my mind entirely, but it softened my view to an extent. The reason that fly lines, in most cases at least, are so expensive is because of the wide assortment of options and the development it takes to offer all of those. If you take someone like Rio, they offer everything from a line for panfish to sailfish, and really honing those lines in definitely takes a certain R and D cost. So while they probably sell a lot fewer lines for fishing blue water than they do their Rio Gold, having that option comes at a certain cost. It sucks for those of us who only fish for one species, especially something like trout where the lines have been mostly developed years ago, but there is something to be said for the ability to get a line that really performs whenever you’re after the fish of a lifetime or something similar. As for the original poster, if you bought a line that was not the grain weight that was advertised, that’s total crap and purely unacceptable (it also sort of negates my point regarding the cost involved in developing lines to perfection, but hopefully, this is an exception).
  7. Where did you buy it from?
  8. It’s okay. That whole thing was an absurd example of customer service, lack of following through on their word and policy, and general concern for anglers getting back on the water (which they allege to care about). With the above said, the silver lining is that I replaced them with a pair of Patagonia waders and could not be happier about them. Everything is better with these, from fit to features, and they are absolutely worth the little extra coin.
  9. I was initially told, “send some pics of the problem and a receipt and we will get you a new pair sent out.” I then, weeks later, also was told “because this was in the 60 day period of ‘no questions asked,’ you’ll have a new pair 2 to 3 DAYS after we get your pair.” Because I had already began a warranty claim with Simms, I just went ahead and handled it and will return the brand new pair to the shop. Otherwise, the shop would have had to do all of that and I wasn’t really interested in wasting their time/payroll on something so annoying and cumbersome.
  10. I’ll bump this thread as it’s basically just Humorous at this point, I mean, the humor is at my expense, but I’ll fill you all in so that hopefully y’all aren’t the ones getting laughed at down the road. I put my waders in the mail on 6/10, here we are on 6/27 still without waders. So step by step, my waders failed within 10 days (manufacturer defect), I complained to Simms and they jerked me around for two weeks before even getting back to me, they refuse to send me a new pair so as to waste less of my time not being able to fish, I finally send them back, and it’s now been 17 days without a new pair. I’d say giving your money to Simms is about as good of a bet as investing in something like a VHS tape manufacturer.
  11. You’re comparing apples to oranges at best. But sure, if you’re purely going on the logic of them “not knowing what’s going on,” then **** em, pull the plug and let em rot.
  12. I certainly do not want to kill them off, but I would absolutely be in favor of stripping their rights to pass absurd laws or, ya know, remain seated on our country’s Supreme Court.
  13. For one, you can’t get blood from a turnip, and I’m not even remotely sure of the legality involved in some authority contacting someone’s place of work in order to garner their wages. Bare minimum, that’s going to take a lot of effort with a burden that often gets foisted onto the tax payer. Simply put, I’d much rather just let a woman or a couple have access to what they feel is best for their own personal situation rather than creating a whole new (very likely flawed) system that you suggested. You are aware of your tax dollars currently being used to fund parents that cannon afford to care for their child, right? And you are aware of how that will increase whenever people are forced to have children that they don’t want, right? Moreover, it takes two to tango, men are just as responsible in an accidental baby as the women. In fact, there are plenty of cases where, wholly unknown to the woman, a man says he’s going to wear a condom and simply doesn’t—it doesn’t sound like sex is something you’re super versed in, but think of a position where the man is behind the woman, maybe in a dark room, where she doesn’t see his member before it goes in. All that I’ll say regarding your statement of the way you treat your family is that I’m sure happy you’re not in my bloodline, and I’d be willing to bet that a whole lot of conversation about you occurs behind your back. That’s no way I’d want to live, especially with members of my own family.
  14. I can agree with it being limited to the first trimester, that provides 12 weeks, which is quite a chunk of time.
  15. I certainly don’t trust all laws that exist and I’m sure the majority of us have broken them, whether knowingly or not at some point or other. There are certainly laws that don’t make sense, and this is one of them, in my opinion. With that said, I’ve stated my opinion on the morality of this subject and it hasn’t changed. To me, it’s simple, prevent a problem before it happens if that’s what the mother and/or Couple wants (depending on whether or not the father is taking ownership and is involved), or force many people (often the immediate family as well as the tax payers of the area that baby was born into) to deal with a whole assortment of problems for at least 18 years, but more realistically, their whole life. If someone can honestly make the decision that they aren’t fit to be a parent, good on them for recognizing it and I’d say good on them for not bringing a child into the world that they can’t reasonably care for (all basic info points to that leading to a crappy life for the kid and one that often requires a lot of bailing out).
