Satoshi Yamamoto…..Inspiration.

For all of you that attended the 2011 Simms Iceout there is no doubt that you know Satoshi Yamamoto.  Satoshi was the Grand Champion in the fly tying exhibition in Bozeman. His award winning fly, The Coyote, was a hands down favorite with the judges and quickly elevated Satoshi in the fly tying world.

Satoshi is also a Sweetwater Travel Guide School graduate and future Fly Guide.   For those of you that know Satoshi know that he is dedicated to his craft and wants to be the best he can be. Therefore over the last few weeks Satoshi has been giving it is all to spend as much time on the Yellowstone as he can, to become one with his new RO Drift Boat and learn the nuances of the finicky river.

Before he had to return to his day job Satoshi sent me an email that should provide inspriration to anyone wanting to excell in their profession, hobby or craft. Right on Satoshi and we’ll see you in July!

“Hi Charlie, I put 20 miles on both my boat and bicycle in 4 days. Not bad for self-shuttling. My investment (bicycle $80 + chain $10) seems paid off as a shuttle. See you in July. “- Satoshi

Hi Charlie,
Thanks for kind words. I miss my boat now.
I’m actually at a farm in Billings right by Yellowstone River. Water level here is scary too. Tonight I’m heading to South Dakota for more cows to breed. Though I enjoy my other profession too, some of you who saw my pic at Facebook might hesitate to shake hands with me…..LOL!
Keep me updated about fishing!

Where is the picture of this Coyote you speak of? Can it be jerk stripped on a sink line?
