Wow RIP Jose and I'm so sad for his family's loss. He had one of the few shows I'd actually watch.

very sad to hear about Jose. You got the sense that he was truly passionate about the fish and really "got" what fishing was all about.

I have a bunch of SF episodes on the dvr ready to watch. \Won't be the same now.

Like I said in the other thread, just a huge loss to the industry. It still doesn't seem real.

Here is an article Jerry McKinnis wrote that sums Jose up real good.

Huge loss, after his life, imagine the fish he'll get in heaven.

That is tragic - what a great loss to the fishing community, I always enjoyed his shows and his passion for fishing and the outdoors.

I've been thinking about Jose and having read people's thoughts and testimonies all over the web and in newspapers etc. I have not seen one single word negative about the man or his shows.

In this day and age of trolls and libelous scoundrels run amuck, THAT may be the greatest testimony he could receive.

The community truly loved and respected the man and his work.

Watched his tribute show the other night. It wasnt all that great and ignored a lot of his accomplishments other than the fishing show and guiding. Jose deserves at least and hour special show.

His shows were great and he seemed like such a good man. Sounds to me like he was. He was the first guy that ever made me want to go saltwater fishing more than any other type of fishing. He will be missed.

Reading around the net I've noticed the same thing. Loved his show and now my prayers go out to his family.
