Well for the better part of a month I've been playing at the vice preparing for the big Magicicada emergence.
[attach=1]
Visions of giant carp feeding greedily on the surface danced through my head.  Unfortunately the cicadas have not (at least not that I've heard) shown up at the lakes nearby that are home to Mr.Carp.  I was beginning to think I might have to wait seventeen more years before I got a chance to field test my creations.  Then I finally got some intel from a friend who said the lake near his place was alive with the buzzing and droning of Brood ll.  He didn't know if there were any carp in the lake so I took it upon myself to find out.








As you can see, no carp to be found on this trip but man, that was fun!  Brood ll lived up to the hype; too bad I'll have to wait another seventeen years to do that again.

Good chit !!   I tied up some cicadas for some friends going to Shady Valley this weekend  "just in case"   glad to see the red eyes and orange...cause thats how I tied mine.   Wish the hell they were further south....that'd be some kick ass fishing....and free fish food for a while in the pond.

Fished another pond today.  It was another memorable cicada day.

Am I seeing this right? Did that fucking whore bitch carp eat two flies at the same time?

It appears I had sloppy seconds; that was someone's leftovers.  It is a pretty decent looking hopper pattern which now resides in my box.  If it belongs to anyone out there... thanks.  One last pic from the days festivities.
