John Hoagland, Vice President of sales for Simms Fishing
Products - steps down. John Hoagland, who as Vice President of
sales for Simms Fishing Products was instrumental in shaping that
country's strategy to reach into the conventional tackle market,
has stepped down. A statement from Simms C.E.O. K.C Walsh: "John
Hoagland is resigning from Simms and will be transitioning out of
the company over the next month. John has expressed a desire to
return home to Milwaukee and we accept this decision. As we plan
for 2014, it is the right time to make the transition. John will be
assisting me during this period and plans to be in the office
during the week of July 29. We thank John for his many
contributions to Simms, and wish John well." It is late in the
evening and I just read the story of John Hoagland stepping down
from Simms. Maybe now some common sense will return to the
management structure at Simms. Maybe management may take another
look at retail and see that the company is misguided and out of
touch with what made Simms a great company. I celebrate his
departure. "We are Simms and we can do anything we want". John's
arrogance drove that attitude. I too, celebrate his departure. I
have to agree with the previous comments. I met John once and he
seemed to be arrogant, rude,and sarcastic. I am sure everyone at
Simms who had the displeasure of working with this guy everyday is
elated right now. Do you actively monitor stream temperatures, and
do you voluntarily stop fishing-and/or guiding-certain places when
the water gets too warm?
- I don't bother with any of that.
- I don't take stream temperatures, but I honor closures and such
when they're recommended.
- I monitor water temps, and don't fish if it's too warm, without
someone having to urge me not to. Sign up to receive our bi-monthly
