    This post is from a couple of trips taken over the past two Fridays to Area 51 creeks, including the wild brown trout infested "Groom Creek". Both trips were a blast. We easily caught dozens apiece. All rainbows from Grays' Creek and all wild browns from Groom Creek. All wild trout were caught on various colored stimulators, of course, and tasted great with pan fried potatoes (just kidding).

    Note all the cans and trash Dave has in his backpack. Groom Creek had a few careless visitors of the cheap beer swillin' kind. I hope they were beamed up and "probed".

    Dave was using his 4wt Jim Reams 8' two piece bamboo. A lil pricey for me. I used my Winston 8' 3wt BIIT.
