We hear the story of how John Peterka came to own Sage Brush Dry, a great company out of Kake Alaska producing dry bags for hunting and fishing.  Find out how part of the deal when buying the company was for John to become a fly fisher.

John describes their process of using radio frequency welding which creates a thermal and air tight bond.  They can get more curve because they are using hot air welding via a double bond.  A lot of terminology but bottom line is they produce a killer water proof bag.
