  Meet Tom ... 1996

tom waters on the mckenzie river oregon

I was born Hideo Harada Inagaki in Kyushu, Japan in 1951
and immigrated to the United States in 1958. My name was changed to Tommy Kimm or some may remember me as Tommy Kim. Coos Bay was my first home in Oregon and I started fishing in that Coastal town in 1967. I also became a professional musician when I was 16. Since then I have lived in Portland and Eugene and have continued to fish and play music throughout Oregon. In 2004 I took my Japanese name back and my legal name is now  Hideo Tom Harada.
     Although I fish for many species from Bluegill to Marlin, my favorite is fly-fishing for trout and summer steelhead in the Willamette Valley.

Here I am in 2009 with my cocker Henry ...
