    Multiple camera angles, sync’d sound and lighting and a crew? Is the Croatian Ken Burns aiming to debut his Montauk dream documentary at Sundance or Cannes? 🙂

    Z another great video …there gonna be classics.. Just picked up my new bag from Tom at surfday . He is a real craftsmen . The bag is top shelf. I feel a got a top quality bag and made another good fishing friend. Zeno and Tommy thanks..I’ll be lookin for the scrap leftover shirts on Monday.

    Tom was obviously swamped for a bit at the JSS understandably but he comes across as very approchable and an overall easy going dude. We are lucky to have premium bag makers like him to make top notch gear. The only problem is they look so durable you can fish that bag for life and never need another!

    If you’ve every fished with Tom you immediately appreciate why his bags are built the way they are. He had no choice but to build his own bag because he could not find anything on the market that was up to the type of surf fishing he does. The man is intense.

    If you ever meet Tom you get a quick understanding the amount of pride he takes in creating your bag for you. The conversation you have with him and discussing how and where you fish so he can get an idea of what you want and why you want certain things on your bag. He will make suggestions and recommendations. I own a early custom that Tom made some changes to. I’ll have this bag for the rest of my fishing career. I may be looking at a 2 tube in my future to lighten my load a tad and make things easier.
    Great video and well presented.
