My name is Naoto Sano.

I was born in Hokkaido JAPAN in 1960.

I received a major influences from Ken Sawada and I have been tying classic salmon fly since 1995. Hokkaido is where I live. Its rich in nature and there are many wild and native trout. I love to fish for trout with classic salmon flies.

'Beautiful fish with beautiful flies'

This word has always been a support to me.I will continue to enjoy Fly Fishing forever with this word.
