One of my favorite hook and bullet guys. Via con Dios, muchacho.

The host of a popular fishing TV show was killed Friday afternoon when his single-engine plane crashed in Everglades City.

Jose Wejebe, who hosted Spanish Fly, a saltwater fishing show on the Outdoor Channel and formerly ESPN, died when his kit plane plummeted into a field near the runway shortly after take-off from Everglades Airpark. Wejebe is the registered owner of the plane, according to FAA records.

Cuba-born Wejebe was known for his extensive travels chasing big fish, which took him from the Gulf of Mexico to the Galapagos.
