Tying a Drowning Cicada

Producer: Michael Yelton  |  The Granddaddy Fly Fishing Experience

WHEN cicadas are drowning out the neighborhood lawnmowers and are being accused of noise pollution , it’s time to think about throwing one of these meaty patterns. Michael Yelton demonstrates how to tie a Drowning Cicada, a sort of “cripple” variation that sinks a bit further into the film and shows more of a target to hungry fish. Cicada flies are great choice not just for large- and smallmouth bass, but for big brown trout as well.
