Designed by the great entomologist and fly angler Greg Hoover, Hoov’s Cicada is a fly that matches adult cicadas of any species, and if you’re in an area that’s seeing the Periodical Cicada emergence, don’t leave home without this fly. It floats like a cork, its Krystal Flash wing can be seen even in low light conditions, and it lands with an enticing “plop.” Whether you’re after bass, trout, carp, or monster panfish, this fly will get the job done.

We've put together a kit that contains all the materials you need to tie this exact fly pattern.
