Cicadas Last Fling

Wife wanted to do an overnight sight seeing trip. I had a place in mind, got the sightseeing in on the 5th which left this A.M. for a last fling Cicada jaunt. Cicadas were over as far as I could tell, I found only one dead one along the road and none singing in the canopy. I was hoping that some still had a taste for them. I went with my orange pattern in a size 8.

Wife trying out her camera out on me a little later in the morning:

This brown still liked the looks of a Cicada.

Trout were not as agressive this trip, but still found quite a few that were willing to taste one last Cicada.

Along with the Cicadas being over for the season, the mountain laurel booms showed only a few remaining.

Unlike last trip which were all rainbows, 30% of them were browns.

Great way to spend a morning watching trout rise and take a size 8 dry fly.

No Cicadas or trout were harmed for this post

That's Odd, I heard LOTS of cicada on the 4th. I guess 2 days could make all the difference though. Congrats on the good trip however.
