HP Yamashiro is that old Japanese guy who quietly out fishes guys 50 years younger than him. I had the oppertunity to share the rail and dinner table with him on a couple of LR trips and he will be missed by many. God speed and tight lines to HP. He hooked a big one and it took him all the way to heaven!

Sorry but who is HB. Please give a little more information. Thank you.
Couple of pics of HP in the Shogun report from our 4/12-20 trip. He's the one in the Blue Plaid shirt in the group photo in the galley, 2nd pic 4/19 and in the last pic of the set posted 4/15. He's in a Southwest print BrushPopper type western shirt holding his rod and standing next to Tommy who has his Yellowtail on the gaff.

HP told me he thought he was on his last trip. 86 and he knew the ride does not last forever.

HP also led an interesting life. He grew up in Minnestota and was in an internment camp during WW2. Upon his release, he traveled west to California to pick fruit in the Central Valley. Through a lot of hard work and sweat, he saved enough to by a little piece of land. By the time I met him, he owned a large farming venture that raised fruit and leased it out. The cases of fruit brought aboard the Shogun by HP and his friends were passed around and shared by all.

HP was also a voracious reader and would often show intrest in whatever others happened to be reading. He carried a little notepad in his top pocket and would write down facts and things that interested him to research later.



HE LOVED TO FISH and always seemed to be hooked up. I am so fortunate I had the oppertunity to meet and share the rail with HP on two trips. He will be missed by many.
