April 6, 2012 - It is with great sorrow and a heavy heart as we mourn the loss of an important member of the Outdoor Channel family tonight. Spanish Fly host and angling icon Captain Jose Wejebe died earlier this evening in a tragic small aircraft accident in Collier County, Florida. Details are still coming in at this late hour, but the entire Outdoor Channel family is shocked, saddened and stunned. Our prayers go out to the family of Captain Jose Wejebe.

Some of the greatest adventures in sport fishing are highlighted each week on Spanish Fly. Host Jose Wejebe is happy to share his journeys, whether on his home waters of the Florida Keys, or in some exotic locale like Venezuela, Costa Rica or even Brazil.

Jose Wejebe is the star of Spanish Fly and one of the most respected fishing guides on the blue planet. Jose started fishing on Miami beaches as a boy after his family fled Castro’s revolution in the 1960’s. Today, he is in his prime sharing his passion for fishing with millions. Jose gives Spanish Fly its comfortable, casual, hip style. But he’s quick to share the credit. “Every once in a while”, he says, “you find a team where everything clicks perfectly. That’s what we have with the Spanish Fly”.

The show is produced by Mike McKinnis of JM Associates, a production company synonymous with outdoor programming and pioneers in the art. The JM Crew and Jose turn Spanish Fly into first rate television. Contemporary. Adventurous. Polished. From its three camera shoots to music ranging from hot Latin salsa and Schubert Waltzes, Spanish Fly has a look and feel like no other program on the air. “This is a great team,” says Jose Wejebe. “We work very hard to capture the passion and adventure of the world’s most spectacular fishing; and we are always thinking of the viewer because we want to give them something to savor, something to remember and that’s the magic of Spanish Fly.”
