Latest And Probably Last Batch Of Cicadas

It's up in the air whether the big black bugs will be keying on trout this weekend, most likely not, or maybe. It was a blast fishing foam patterns this early and hopefully some of these will work in the summer. Just goofing on the 'mutant' pattern. :)

If the trout stop taking them, use them for bass and panfish.

There's a fine line between fishing and sitting there looking stupid.

The bigger, thicker patterns didn't float well Sunday, too top heavy. Learning a lot about foam tying, trying to balance the fly and tying the foam evenly. The thinner, orange rubber legs only worked for the smaller flies, ran out of round black/orange legs. Hooked 4 and landed two on top. It was big-time cool to watch a rainbow come up from 3' down to hit the foam fly. Time to tie hoppers, beetles, ants, and some chernobyl-style attractors.
