The next Cicada brood is upon us! When the next brood hatches, all fish partake in the feeding frenzy. Use a thicker leader and tippet 1x to 3x not just for fighting larger fish, but because thicker lines help cast these heavy flies more accurately.

Brood X is expected to be its most dense late May into June. It will eventually fizzle out in July, however, trout will recognize these flies late into the summer and opportunistically take them.

Richard Lisi
Realistic Cicada Flies

Although I have not fished the cicadas, at this time, I expect good results, if presented properly. In addition, I was very impressed with your small business model.
My order arrived very quickly and included a few unexpected extras, even though it was a small order. It's always a pleasure to deal with businesses like yours that
are so customer oriented with excellent products.
