Jose Wejebe
Born in Havana, Cuba in 1958, Jose Wejebe grew up in a politically tumultuous time. Fidel Castro leading the Cuban revolution had just seized power and was imposing communist ways on the country. The new government then began taking land, money and property from some of the families with claims that the property now belongs to the "revolution"...

Rigging a Fly Rod - Start to Finish
Using Power Pro Hollow Ace Braid for backing these days, so I like to wrap a layer of electrical tape on the core of the fly reel. Since the line is so "slippery" the tape gives the braid something to "grab" on to.
Amazon Jungle Fishing
A trip into the Brazilian Amazon typically starts off in Manaus, the capital of the Amazonas state. Manaus is situated at the confluence of the Negro and Solimões rivers and has a population of about 2 million people. While manaus was simply a jump point for our trip to the Rio Travessao, we were able to spend a little time checking out the local fish market
Louisiana Redfishing with the Holeman Brothers
The best fishing trips sometimes come when you least expect them. I recently heard from a friend about a place tucked away in the Louisiana marsh where the "hot" redfish action would make you glad it wasn't summer. This redfisherman's haven, called Hopedale, was not only home to HUGE redfish during these winter months, but also to a couple of die-hard fishing guides, Travis and Bryan "Bear" Holeman. AKA... The Holeman Brothers!
Fishing Cosmoledo with Frontier Fly Fishing
What do you do when you get a call from a couple of guys from South Africa who say they want to take you on an expedition to some of the most remote atolls in the Seychelles Island chain. You reply "when, where, yes please!"
Sabi Sabi Wildlife Reserve, South Africa
Last year we went on an extended expedition to the Indian Ocean to fish the untouched atolls of the southeastern-most Seychelles Islands. On our way to the Seychelles, we had stopped in Johannesburg South Africa to gather our gear and prepare for the next leg of our "journey". It was there that our friends and hosts, Dean Riphagen and Tom Lewin, owners of Frontier Fly Fishing, introduced us to Rob Wyndham who oversees the Game Preserve called Sabi Sabi.
Costa Del Mar photo shoot in the Dry Tortugas

Good Friends and Fishing Memories
by Christian Goodpaster

As the Action-Craft skiff begins to come on plane across the greenish tinted water, I am thankful I have been blessed for another day of life. Today isn't just another day, today I'm fishing and filming with Jose Wejebe in the Florida Keys. Our quarry; fish and reflections of the past and present. A celebration of the "bro's!"


What do Kiteboarding and the Bahamas have in common?
Kiteboarding is a new water-sport that incorporates elements of windsurfing and wakeboarding. Basically a rider uses a kite and the power of the wind to propel themselves across the water on a board similar to a wakeboard. I had been taking lessons for a while with an organization called the Kitehouse out of Key West.
Urban Nature, Banana River Florida
My name is Derek Redwine. After many years of being friends with Jose Wejebe, he recently asked me if my family and I would be interested in doing a fishing show with him. After I picked myself up off the ground, we talked through some ideas. Jose made it clear he really just wanted us to do what we do.

This was very special to us because he wasn't asking us to be a fishing guide, captain, or expert on the river...he was just asking us to be a family and show him how we like to explore the outdoors and pass on our passion on to our child.


Plane is done and Flying!
After years of hard work and testing, the plane is finally done and has been put to the test. The goal was to build a plane that could fly far, fast, and heavy. It comes from a kit plane manufacturer known as Compair and you build it together with a company known as Composite Technologies. We built it from the ground up with exploration, filming and fishing in mind.
Remembering Jose
Sharing a few stories of how Jose touched the lives of others through his good will and love of the ocean and fishing.
Butterfly Fishing Key West
We went out today just with the intent to locate some new bottom for fishing and maybe do a little underwater filming.

Crooked Island - Fishing and Flying in the Bahamas

Building A New Airplane II
Things are moving right along with the building of the airplane. Sounds scary at first, the though of actually building a plane, but the guys at Aerocomp and Composite Technologies have really made it seem... well.... maybe not easy, but possible.

Comp Air Turbo Prop Experimental Airplane Build
Jose Wejebe begins the process of building a new turbo prop experimental airplane with the folks at Comp Air. The kit airplane is built with composite materials much like a boat and you put it together with the help the builder assist program. It is powered by a 680hp Walters Turbine engine.
Louisiana Redfish - Red Fishing with Gary Taylor
We did a redfish shoot in February, 2007 out of Slidell, Louisiana where we fished with a guide named Gary Taylor targeting redfish on fly and spin.. Gary has a pretty cool gig where he has a 32' ft Louisiana Skiff, which is a true Louisiana Bayou boat. Gary built a ramp-like trailer into the back of the Louisiana Bayo boat where he winches up and lauches his smaller Hell's Bay skiff. Great time redfishng on fly and spin!

 


Sea Vee 34 Spanish Fly Boat with triple Mercury Verado Outboards
I am currently working with Sea Vee Boats to build the new Spanish Fly. It is going to be a 34', center console with triple Mercury Verados. I have never been a fan of the hype of triple engines boats, until I rode in that same boat and was really impressed with the performance, balance and speed of the whole rig.
Shimano’s New Products
Shimano had their annual customer meetings in Key West in May. I got to be a fly on the wall and attend some of their meetings. I was able to check out their new products for the upcoming year. Some of the stuff, no one knows about or even has been announced yet, so it was really cool. I took some video at the conference and will be showing viewers some sneak peeks on our website of what's to come from Shimano. Stay tuned

Journey to the Galapagos
This year while shooting the shows, the crew and I departed on what would be a trip of a life time to the remote islands of the Galapagos. The Galapagos are an archipelago of volcanic islands situated near the equator about 1000Km off the coast of Ecuador. These geologically young islands are best known for their pristine natural environment and vast number of endemic species which led to the inception of Charles Darwin's theory of evolution. The islands and their surrounding waters have been protected as a national park and marine sanctuary since the 1960s in an effort to maintain their pristine natural condition.

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.
