BD’s Derek Redwine Fishing on Spanish Fly


Well it’s finally time! Over the past summer I shot a second show with my friend Jose Wejebe, host of the Spanish Fly television show on the Outdoor Channel.

The show should come out pretty funny, the episode follows us using various watercrafts to fish local ponds, ditches and rivers around my home waters in Merritt Island, Florida.

The premise of the show that Jose wrote up says, “What do you do in tough economic times when you want to go fishing but don’t have the means to get in a big center console boat? Downsize everything —including your boat — and fish in your own backyard. Host Jose Wejebe visits friend Derek Redwine at his house in Merritt Island with the goal of finding any kind of small fishing craft to catch fish around Merritt Island, Florida. The dramatic ending on the fly with Jose out of the boat is a Spanish Fly moment…”

Here’s the schedule and some screen grabs from the show below.

Before becoming the Creative Director for BD Outdoors, Derek Redwine owned and operated the web development and design firm BoldWater for more than 16 years. Derek has an extensive fishing resume, and began his career working as a mate on various charter boats based out of central Florida. He started fishing the Bahamas at an early age with his father, and has traveled to some of the world's best fishing locations including Venezuela, Costa Rica, Mexico, Nova Scotia, Alaska and the Caribbean. He's appeared in many magazines over the years and has been a guest on the television show Spanish Fly with his close friend Jose Wejebe twice. At BD Outdoors, Derek is able to combine his passion for fishing with his artistic designs. “As a graphic artist, I think my best attribute is visually explaining a place, product or experience to someone,” Derek says. Derek lives in Merritt Island, Florida, with his wife Cory and son Alden.
