Simon Thomas has been involved with clay shooting since he was 12 years old. He is passionate about all disciplines of the sport and the people involved within it.
As a young shooter, Simon was fortunate enough to be mentored by a small group of friendly, experienced guns who ensured he got the best start in the sport a lad could wish for.
As Simon’s experience grew and the hours clocked up on the range, it became apparent that clothing specifically made for the sport, although available, was relatively limited and possibly cost-prohibitive for young shooters or shooters looking for best value for money.
In 2017, Simon put together a range of clothing aimed at the clay shooting community. The brief for this range was very simple; it must be stylish, robust, functional and above all, offer great quality and value for money.
A limited stock of this range was manufactured and offered to a number of shooters for them to test out on the range. This testing proved invaluable and enabled Simon to modify and develop the range into the quality products he offers today under the Clayclo banner.
Never forgetting the assistance he received himself, Simon is proud to be sponsoring a number of guns under the Clayclo name. Our sponsored shooters range in age, experience and abilities, but all share a common love for clay shooting and are all great ambassadors for the sport. You can see their profiles on our Sponsored Shooters page.
The Clayclo range of clothing and accessories is expanding; we have some fantastic products in development and we look forward to bringing these to you very soon.
Simon has achieved his target of building the Clayclo brand. Now he aims to build the Clayclo family of shooters……..
