Apparel giant Simms took an impressive five awards at the 2013 International Fly Tackle Dealer (IFTD) Best of Show awards in Las Vegas, Nevada

The awards saw companies get the chance to win a share of almost $50,000 worth of free editorial in leading global business-to-business magazine Tackle Trade World, which was sponsoring the awards for the first time.

Scott Rods took the prestigious Overall Best of Show Award with its new Radian freshwater fly rod, which has been the talk of the show for the last three days.
