My name is Yasuhiro Ogasawara. I was born in Japan in 1957. I began tying flies for my own fishing at age 15. I became interested in salmon flies in 2010, and began making hooks soon therafter. I have a small scale production of traditional Japan lacquer finish and my own gold leaf finish hooks for friends in the great salmon fly tying world. I very much enjoy salmon fly tying and the friends I have made.
