“Diaries Of A Musky Addict” is a teaser cut from the documentary “Pursuing Esox: Pike, Musky, and Pickerel On The Fly.” The documentary explores the cultural phenomena surrounding the world of Esox fishing on the fly–the tying, the boats, the people, and their obsessive lifestyles. “Pursuing Esox” is filmed and produced by Austin Green Weinstein (austingreenphotography.com), photography and filmmaking student at the Maryland Institute College of Art (portfolios.mica.edu/austingreenphoto) and founder of The Uncommon Angler (theuncommonangler.com)
