We’re a country of rivers and streams. Lewis and Clark discovered this as they made their way westward. And it remains apparent today to anyone who stares out an airplane window. 

As anglers, we have a special appreciation of, and a personal relationship with, these iconic rivers. We also have a great sense of concern. That’s because many of these rivers are threatened by mining, pollution, closure and more. 

Thankfully, there’s a way for all of us to help through Save Our Streams (S.O.S.). It’s a SIMMS program that raises awareness of – and gives back to – these waterways. Part of this program is a series of limited-edition S.O.S. tee-shirts. Each one is designed for a much-loved American river. And a portion of the proceeds from each sale go to organizations working to protect and preserve these rivers for all of us to enjoy.

This month’s shirt benefits the Smith River in Central Montana with proceeds going towards American Rivers to help preserve the uniqueness of this waterway.
