Click here to see see Jose’s boat in all it’s glory! I was very fortunate to meet Jose many years ago and share fried chicken for lunch while our flats skiffs were tied together off the Northshore of Montauk while sight-fishing for stripers and bluefish. Jose was a neat guy and bigger than life. When I used to fish the keys I always saw his SeeVee in the racks down at the Keys boat launch, it was always a  familiar site. After Jose unfortunate passing years ago due to a terrible low pressure system incident during takeoff in his personal plane, the Spanish Fly was later sold to a Julio Mesa in Mexico.

Recently the Spanish Fly just went up in flames in Mexico while it was being stored in dry dock.  A sad end to an amazing boat with many fish stories…
