Justin Lee Spearfishing Interview

Fierce, uber-friendly and a true life-long learner is how I’d describe Justin after chatting with him. Justin is absolutely sold out on the lifestyle hunting and spearfishing provides. Big themes in this interview include; learning something from every person you encounter (taking arrows), maintaining an openness to whatever you are engaged in and learning continuously, and just being a person who is fun to hang out with. One of the standout stories for me, was Justin being hoisted out of the water in 80 fathoms of water from right in the middle of a Tiger Shark highway….at nighttime. This interview packs some dynamite tips and mindsets. Listen in!
