I was playing around with some cicada patterns. What do you think? I am leaning more towards the hair wing instead of the other type wing.

Very nice!

When I fished them in 2008, I tied some with hair wings, and others with wings cut from raffia.
They both worked equally well

Very nice flys Dean! I like the hair wing a bit more, but I've got no good reason.
Mike.

Holy crap! Look who posted!!! And they said old people are frightened by computers.

I had gotten some from dj. Flies look great, reasonable price and fast shipping. Now all I have to do is find a place with cicadas.

Wait til Afish sees those. They look exactly (and I mean exactly) like the ones I tie. Nice work. You obviously saw the same solutions to the same problems as I did. They WORK. WELL. There is only one better pattern, and that is Chocklett's. Again, very nice.

Those Chocklett cicadas almost look too good to fish! I saw them for $6.95 a piece...

I tied a few cicadas up. So now we know they will never show up in the area.

Garon,
Almost identical in everyway except one step. All the exact same materials... I guess in the FF world that is all you need to do is change one thing and then it is an original... Like using red thread on a clouser minnow then it can be your own pattern if you call it a redneck minnow....

You're right, because no one ever thought to wrap foam around a hook before.
