i know this is a late post, i received the terrible news via text on Friday afternoon from many good fishing friends. I spent the afternoon drivin to San Diego to be with my family for Easter. I just wanted to put this up in remembrance of one of the true ambassadors of saltwater fly fishing in the last fifteen years or so, Jose Wejebe. My two favorite shows were the Walkers Cay Chronicles with Flip Pallot and Jose’s Spanish Fly. These shows connected me to my passion by transforming my living room into a flat with permit, tarpon and bonefish. I got to meet Jose in person in the mid-ninties in montauk while sight fishing striped bass with many other notable writers and fly fisherman at the time. We tied up boats one afternoon and talked over some fried chicken, he was a very cool guy and of course barefoot. There’s a hole in the fly fishing and guiding community for sure…I believe there will be a memorial on this Sunday, April 15th, 2012 at 1:30 pm at the IGFA museum for all his fans, friends and family.
