The Specimen

Cicadidae (Cicadas) Cicada AdultCicadidae (Cicadas) True Bug Adult View 4 PicturesI found this cicada and several like it in the grass near my car as I put my waders on. Some of them were singing in the trees above the river, too, but I did not see any fall into the water.

When asked what I just caught that monster on I showed him. He put on his magnifiers and said, "I can't believe they can see that."

Gather some up, pull a wing off, and get a chum-line going. Start a hatch, then splat down that big ugly. That's if fishin has been tough lately, and I'm getting close to that point.
