Good looking ties. I've been whipping up a few cicadas myself. I had the damndest time finding red eyes I liked and eventually settled on these.

They work. I've had them out fishing a few times over the past week. Fish either hit them as soon as they splash down or they want some movement out of them. I've had my best luck fishing them like I do a mouse and "wiggle" the end of the rod as I slowly strip them back. Imagine what a cicada would look like while trying to take off from the pond surface. It's produced some awesome surface strikes, not the normal sucking the Fly down that a largemouth normally does, but a blow-up on the surface and even some coming clean out of the water to hit it.

Oh yea. I'm not fishing an area that has a hatch going on.
