Tomorrow, April 6, 2013 marks one year since fishing legend Jose Wejebe passed away in a plane crash in Florida. I grew up watching Spanish Fly and to this day it shapes the way I approach fishing.
Jose always had a laid back attitude and spoke with a very “matter of fact” tone. While most fishing TV personalities banked on high energy and corny catch phrases, Jose just gave us the facts and the story without all the frilly hoopla.
His passing left a void in the fishing community and even though I never had the chance to meet Jose, I often think about him and miss him as a brother fisherman. His impact cannot be understated and his loss will be felt forever.
Tight lines Jose!
