In the wake of fishing icon Jose Wejebe’s death in a plane crash, the IGFA has planned a memorial.
From the IGFA website:
The fishing community has lost a great angler, icon, and friend. We are deeply saddened by the untimely passing of Jose Wejebe, host of the immensely popular saltwater fishing and fly fishing television show Spanish Fly on the Outdoor Channel. Through his show and his adventures he shared a passion for fishing that touched and inspired anglers around the world.
We would like to invite all family and friends to a Celebration of Life in honor of Jose Wejebe, Sunday April 15, 2012 at 1:30 PM at the IGFA Fishing Hall of Fame & Museum in Dania, Beach Florida. All those who were touched by Jose are welcome to attend. Further information and updates will be available shortly at www.spanishflytv.com, as well as on our Facebook page.
