A visit to Garrett Lee’s Tsutomu Lure shop in Honolulu proves he and his crew are as dedicated and focused on lure making as anyone. A soft-spoken, keen-eyed craftsman, Lee is detail-oriented and uses his fishing experience to hone his lures. As a dyed-in-the-wool ahi fisherman, he originally focused on lures for tuna, establishing Tsutomu in 2010. He looks to his uncle, Mike Lee, and Dennis Odagiri—who make fish-head-insert lures—as his inspirations in getting started making lures. Garrett Lee marvels at the quality of Odagiri’s work and considers him a master. He also holds Odagiri, Koya, Steve Coggins, Gary Yamamoto and Lon Tanigawa in high esteem as high-quality lure-making peers.
