Default Mark Yano.updated: Memorial/Potluck Oct 15th

Today we lost a great friend of NW salmon fishing. Mark Yano passed away this morning about 11:30 from a two year battle with cancer. He battled it and lived like he had it beat, fishing and hunting with friends as much as his time and his condition allowed. Although treatment was tough at times, we should all be so lucky to live the way he lived the last couple of years of his life.

If you fish Pautzke's Fire Cure, you can thank Mark for it. The secret base recipe is his and he helped develop the final product. Every good egg fisherman who's anyone around these parts knows of Mark and would have given his right hand to get his left hand on some "Yano Cure" or better yet, Yano cured eggs. Mark was known for being maticulous about his bait and how he fished it.

**There will be a memorial gathering/potluck here in Tillamook Oct 15th. Everyone is invited. Held at Swiss Hall on 3rd st. @ 6:30PM. Bring a dish and your favorite beverage. Even a pizza or bucket of "Colonol Sanders".

We'll miss you Mark !

Sad news.....another of the "good guys" passes on. Mark always had a smile and was one of the most enthusiastic salmon anglers I ever met. He always had a new fishery he was checking out and incredible success stories to share. He could slip into a hole without you knowing it and pull chrome right out from under your nose!

We are witnessing the passing of a group of innovators who developed many of the fisheries, techniques and products today's anglers take for granted. Gary Hilton, Willie Illingsworth, Mark Yano...these guys figured it out so we could all enjoy it.

So true.

Spent time in Alaska with Mark and Gary, they were in a league by themselves.

RIP Mark, you will be missed.

Mark gets the credit for turning on my twin 12 year boys to salmon fishing. We had three great trips to buoy 10 last year, landing a 20 and 25# chinook on the first trip and 19 coho (16 wild) on our third, which was in serious contrast to prior trips where I was the guide. Mark's impact on the boys will long outlive him, as both now have serious cases of the "fever." Thanks, Mark.

In my life as a lawyer, I helped Mark license his egg cure to Pautzke's. He was a pleasure to work with. I am privileged to have known him. John Crowell

Dang. I have been thinking alot about Mark this week, and now I know why.
I'm so sorry to see him go, although I've never in my life seen a better attitude from anyone about everything.
I really looked up to him.
We always talked about how we had similar situations and I think we somehow shared something that not everyone "gets".
I'll miss him so much. I needed him to understand me.

He always told me how Hilty was saving him a great fishing spot.

I hope that someday I might be blessed enough to fish near that spot, too.

I fished with Mark on the Siletz a few years back. Two things stand out: Mark fished as hard as anyone I've even known, and those eggs! He was very proud of his creation and rightly so.

Sad to lose another great angler and huge advocate of the sport.

Bad things don't happen to good people as a random course of events.

Mark Yano was our teacher, our example of how we should best behave should we encounter the same tragic fate. Thank you Mark.

Mark was an innovator, an advocate and a key player in the growth and development of our hobby and the industry that supports and is supported by sport fishing. He will be sorely missed. We will all need to work harder to honor his memory and fill the void created by his passing.

Very sad day yesterday. The one good thing is the final part happened fast.

It was about 6 weeks ago that the Doctors gave Mark 2-3 weeks to live, so these last few weeks were a blessing in itself. These last 6 weeks for Mark have been filled with love and friendship. Every time I went over to visit or take him a tuna, there were friends there, Dano came back up from Wyoming to spend some more time with Mark. Mark was out crabbing last week and stopped by and gave Janey & I a few crab and told me how much he enjoyed the trip.

Yes, Mark was a very good fisherman, but he was also a great human being.

I will miss him very much

I had heard about Mark Yano many years before I met him. His name was legendary and rightfully so. Last fall I remember talking with him in tidewater and he offered me a seat in his boat.

I'll miss seeing him on the water.

A couple years ago, a friend of my dad's brought Mark along to back bounce eggs at Bonneville for springers. We had been doing well, so my dad invited them to come and get in on the action. So, five of us were out fishing at daylight. First drift, my dad hook's one and my brother hooks one. Second drift, my dad hooks another and my brother hooks another. Third drift, I hook one and we're done. Needless to say, these were all caught on our own personal egg cure. Mark was trying everything he had in his box including every scent and so forth to get a bite. He was a good sport and wasn't upset at all, but it just wasn't his day.

When we were done, Mark walked over to me, my dad, and brother, and said, "Thanks for showing me how it's done...." and shook our hands, kinda smirked, and walked off. After Mark had left, I asked my dad kinda stupidly, "Who was that?". He said, "I'm not sure, I think he said his name was Mark Yarno or Yano or something like that, but I think he works for Pautzke's".

Needless to say, I jumped on the internet to do a little research and to my suprise, found out what a big deal Mark is and what he meant to the fishing community.

It wasn't the only time we fished with Mark and my dad fished the Kalama with him just this spring multiple times.

It was a pleasure to fish with him and he will be missed.

Very sad.
Mark ("the backbouncer") was a great guy and excellent fisherman. I fished many times with and around him in Tillamook and I learned something valuable from him every time our paths crossed. He used to give me great tips when he worked at Fishermans on Columbia Blvd and he helped me outfit my boat for Kodiak. He will be missed.

Mark was a new friend and supporter of OCEAN's mission to educate anglers.

"Solid", Good Friend", and "Stand Up Guy" the best words I know to describe Mark.

Rest in Peace. Our prayers and thoughts to your family.

I believe the greatest compliment you can pay someone, is to say they will be missed.

Mark Yano will be missed.

Everyone who knows me, knows that for most of my adult life I have been a pasionate salmon fisherman, always trying to learn more, develop better tecniques, and always showing tremendous respect for these magnificent animals.

I owe all of that, to Mark Yano.

After moving to Oregon in 1978, I played a bit at salmon and steelhead fishing, but never had much success. I would try and fail and never understood the real joy that comes from this obsession. In the mid 80's a friend of a friend introduced me to Mark Yano. He invited my to join him on a drift boat trip down the Trask on a bright, chilly Fall day. That was the end of my indifference to salmon fishing. His intensity, passion, and childish enthusiasm for his sport was like a drug for me. I wanted more. For the next few years a fished often with Mark, in the spring and the fall at the coast, and other spots as well. He was a willing teacher, laughing at me at one point and saying, "I have nothing to worry about, it will take you 15 years to be a threat to me!" This feuled my passion even more, and I soaked up his vast knowledge of reading water, boatmanship, backbouncing skill, and most of all, his bait secrets. As the years went on I fished less with Mark, as I tried to establish my own identity as a salmon fisherman, but never lost my respect for him as a man, or my admiration for him as a true master of his world. When I would see Mark on the river, he would always flash that huge Hawiian smile, say "Hey Marko" and tell me a lie about the contents of his box. As the next 15 years went by I reaped the benefits from my "Yano" education, but I am sure I never became a threat to him on the river.

As I have continued to fish and pass on my knowledge to others, to teach my son the subtle ways of the salmon, it is always Mark's lessons I am teaching.

Mark Yano will live on in my fondest memories.

The passion and intensity with which he lived, is how I try to live.

His relentless efforts to be better at his skill, to be the best, is the pattern for life I have taught my children.

I owe Mark Yano a lot.

He will be missed........

So Sorry to hear Mark passed. He will be missed for sure. What a great guy. I fished around Mark for years; he was without a doubt one hell of a river fisherman. I am super glad that Mark was able to spend a week this last spring chinook season fishing with my dad. He knew he had very little time left and spent a whole week being guided around and whacking a bunch of coast springers. He said good bye one last time to us then. Mark was blessed to have some great friends in this world.

I am sure he is up above fishing the rivers of heaven. I am sure he anchoring on the perfect seam and is getting a bite right now while I am typing this and probably again while you are reading it.

Mark Yano will be missed.

He knew he had very little time left and spent a whole week being guided around and whacking a bunch of coast springers. He said good bye one last time to us then. Mark was blessed to have some great friends in this world.

I am sure he is up above fishing the rivers of heaven. I am sure he anchoring on the perfect seam and is getting a bite right now while I am typing this and probably again while you are reading it.

Mark Yano will be missed.

I've been trying to find the words since Mark's passing to share that properly reflect the man I knew. I'm resigned to the fact that no words I have will adequately do that. Many others have done far better than I in capturing who Mark was and what he meant to so many of us.

I knew Mark for 30 years, he was always good to me, always upbeat, always friendly and always cared about the sport and fish we pursued and loved. Mark was so much more than a great fisherman --- he made an indelible impression on me in how to approach life and living. When we talked I was the only person in the room, he always gave his full attention, was quick with that Yano smile and never let anything get him down. That was the Mark Yano I knew --- great fisherman, of course, but more than that a rare and wonderful person. God bless Mark Yano.

I did not know Mark as well as some of you but when you are remembered for who you are as a person you have lived well. RIP Mark

There will be a Potluck/Crown Royal Memorial event in celebration of Mark's life on friday Oct 15th. Everyone is invited ! It will be held at Swiss Hall in Tillamook on 3rd st next to the fairgrounds...6:30 pm. Everyone is encouraged to bring a dish or a Pizza, bucket of chicken or whatever you can muster up. Also, bring your own drinks, be it alcohol or not. Crown Royal was Marks favorite "celebratory" so that will be appropriate too. Also, we will be auctioning off bags of Yano Cure to help with expenses.

Bill Hof is working on getting a discounted group rate at the MarClair Hotel for people wanting to stay the night.

Please pass the word, so as no friends or aquaintances of Mark's get left out.

Any questions, email Bill Hof ( or myself ) at billhof@johnlscott.com or call 503-799-8485

Hope to see you all there.

Chris V.

Thanks for the info Chris. Good timing. Looks like a number of us will be in town for the Salmon Hawg Invitational Tournament that week. If I remember correctly Marks team won last year.

I miss my friend...... Yano was more than a great fisherman, He was a dear friend to me and many others. He touched my life in ways that changed me as a person. He tought me what a friend was supposed to be and helped me become what hope is a better human being. Most people know Mark for his fishing ability, and that goes without saying.....He is someone i will always look up to and think about with the utmost respect. I miss you my friend.....rest in peace.....thank you for everything!!!! and save some biters for me when I get there!!!!

Although treatment was tough at times, we should all be so lucky to live the way he lived the last couple of years of his life.

If you fish Pautzke's Fire Cure, you can thank Mark for it. The secret base recipe is his and he helped develop the final product. Every good egg fisherman who's anyone around these parts knows of Mark and would have given his right hand to get his left hand on some "Yano Cure" or better yet, Yano cured eggs. Mark was known for being maticulous about his bait and how he fished it.

**There will be a memorial gathering/potluck here in Tillamook Oct 15th. Everyone is invited. Held at Swiss Hall on 3rd st. @ 6:30PM. Bring a dish and your favorite beverage. Even a pizza or bucket of "Colonol Sanders".

We'll miss you Mark !

LONG before I moved to Oregon in'98 I knew Mark's extended and well respected family in my home state of Hawaii. I became aware of Mark accidently thru his work in baits and thought "what a small world". Now I hear of his passing and think that not only is the world small, but very frugal in the time it gives us to tread upon it. Makes me re-commit to making my time here well used and not squandered. tom m

Looks like I will miss the gathering as I think I will be fishing up North, but I know Mark would understand.

Besides, I saw him often those last weeks, shared my fresh Tuna with him and made my peace with him leaving us.

To all his friends, enjoy the friendship and someone take a sip at the Crown Toast for me.
