Update April 9th 2012: Celebration of Life to be held at the IGFA April 15th
Very sad news tonight. Fishing TV show host Jose Wejebe, the spanish fly tv show was killed today in a plane crash in Everglades City Florida.
I first met Jose at friend Derek Redwine’s house in 2009. Before I met Jose, he has always been held as a mythical fishing god to me. When we met, Jose could not have been cooler. I have seen him at all major fishing event since then, most recent being at the Miami boat show at Hells Bay boatwork’s booth. Though I never had a chance to work with him, he has always been cordial and super cool to me.
Jose had one of the best fishing show on TV and was a pioneer in many aspect of it. He has inspired many generations of fisherman including everyone here at Saltyshores.
On behalf of the Saltyshores family, R.I.P. Jose, you will be missed in the fishing world.
