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.


Remembering Jose

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!
