For some, fishing is an escape. An escape from the daily bombardment of shock and awe brought in by the world in which we live. But with that escape, comes the insanity of a prolonged and complex struggle that commands our very beings towards a battle of balance. A battle worth enduring, despite all provocations. Prepare to ignite your senses with “Battles.” An impactful short film by Working Class Zero featuring trophy bass hunter, Mike Gilbert. Visit WORKINGCLASSZERO.

Mike Gilbert and I go way back – through skateboarding. He was always one of the hardest working filmers in the game and always had a positive vibe and infectious smile. What he has created here is absolutely spectacular and an obvious result of hard work and dedication to what he does, in addition to his many accolades in the skateboarding world. I’m proud of you, Mike! I’m proud of you as a friend, a skateboarder, an artist and an angler! Big Respect and Love!
