Aren't there different species of cicadas?

Cicada patterns, do you use realistic patterns or suggestive patterns?

In 2008 I fished Greg Hoover's Cicada pattern on Spring Creek. What a great time that was. Too bad they won't be back until 2025. His pattern worked very well. I found the pattern in a copy of the Mid-Atlantic Flyfishing.

Smart asses!!

Here ya go: Hoovers Cicada.

Fished a similar pattern the last time with very good success. Thing I noticed about cicadas on the water was how they seemed to land our their backs with wings spread out.

JH - That's the pattern I use, except it's Loren Williams' pattern (not Greg Hoover's).

Easy, durable, and effective tie.

Thank you Ed. I did'nt think that pattern was Hoover's. It's close but not the same. I tied Hoover's pattern last time and they were very effective.

I like the C-13 pattern tied here. It is a relatively easy tie and to me looks more like a cicada and less like a Pixar studio reject than the typical foam monsters.
