Tom Bekkeli

Tom Bekkeli Simms EuropeBeen fishing since I learned to walk, got my first flyrod at the age 12 from my father. Life pretty much changed at that moment and have been fishing ever since. Favorite game is dryfly and trout, but love chasing salmon, bonefish and permit as well. Run my own flyfishing tackle shop before I got hired by FFE late 2006. Did a lot of flycasting classes and flytying classing during the years I run the shop. I built the FFE repair center late 2006/ early 2007 and was the first person in Europe who was trained by the Simms staff to do repairs.

Now I work as the Customer Service Manager and Repair Center Supervisor at FFE. I step in the repair center to help repair Scott flyrods when necessary. Will be at the show to promote Simms, Scientific Anglers flylines and Scott flyrods. Will also show people how to do easy self-repairs and teach how to best care and maintenance Simms gear to prolong the life of the products.
