Sam is the North American Sales Manager at Simms Fishing Products, and a member of its Core Angler Group, an assembly charged with introducing fishing to a wider population of Simms employees via key speakers, fly tying lessons and casting and rowing clinics. Sam is also active with several veterans’ fly fishing associations as a donor and a guide. Born in Bolton, Massachusetts, Sam grew up there and in Monument, Colorado, and it was in the Rocky Mountains that his relationship with and love of the outdoors became the core direction of his life. It was in the spring of 2011, during a family fishing trip to Twin Bridges, Montana, that he rediscovered the beauty and open-spaces of Montana and decided to call it home. When not fishing, Sam deeply enjoys tele-mark skiing, bird hunting, cooking and all activities related to sleeping outside.
