Having just finished up fishing Cicada flies for the first time during an emergence, I'm thinking of tracking different broods throughout the States and spending the next few years on the road--it seems they emerge during different years in different areas:

Strikes (not rises) were explosive. My only complaint is that with the huge splashes I was setting the hook too quickly at first and lost some nice fish before I got calmed down and learned to hesitate. Does anyone else have any experience with this "hatch"?
