SIMS Foundation Capital City Carp Classic


The SIMS Foundation provides mental health and drug addiction recovery services to many Austinites working in and around the music industry. As a fisherman I have always recognized the meditative and mental relaxation found in fishing. I am proud to bring these two loves of mine (music and fishing) together for this inaguaral angling tournament.
