    Hi Trapper - My name is David Abelson. I was born in Phoenix almost 70 years ago! My passion for trout fishing began in 1955, when my family rented a place at Junipine Cabins in Oak Creek Canyon. The owner, Tommy Anderson, taught me how to use small hooks, light leaders & REAL salmon eggs (Atlas Brand-Chinook) to catch my first rainbow trout in the cold, clear waters of Oak Creek.

    Now, over 60 years later, I've fished all over the western U.S. and practiced Environmental Law my entire career, all because of catching my first trout near Junipine Cabins in 1955.

    I decided to join the board because you posted an identical experience of being taught to trout fish in Oak Creek Canyon by Tommy Anderson, the owner of Junipine Cabins.(Chevlon Canyon thread, 5-31-17)

    I have other early fishing stories, so email me if you get this message. (P.S. I started a thread on the General Forums today entitled "When Did You Catch Your First Trout?" Your story is mentioned in that post as well.)
