    The cicadas are coming! :eek: This will be my first year out here during a brood emergence and I am hoping it will be similar to a bumper crop of hoppers out west, where gluttonous fish rise to huge hoppers all day long. I was thinking of adapting some cricket/hopper patterns and trying those. Anyone have some cicada patterns they are willing to share? Am I getting too excited or will this be a few weeks of great fishing?
  2. Illinois had them last year, but I wasn't able to get out once. I hear guys killed the carp using cicada patterns, but I'm not sure which ones specifically.
