Today we'll talk about cicadas and leafhoppers - plus we'll have a bonus interview with Charles Card - a guide on Utah's Green River - talking about the fun cicada "hatch" on that river.

Episode 43: Zebra Caddis
An episode all about the Zebra Caddis - aka the Alderfly. Of course with historical diversions along the way.
Episode 42: Breathing Underwater
How insects breathe underwater ... and more importantly, how we can imitate that. Which I have to admit, I got a little carried away with. This is probably my geekiest episode. So if you want to get to the fly fishing part - jump to about minute 30.
Episode 40: Crayfish
Everything you could have possibly wanted to know about crayfish. Maybe. As well as the mysterious story around Selene's Sure Bet.
Episode 39: Golden Stones
For the purposes of this podcast, the critters I'm talking about are the tiger striped nymphs that fall in the stonefly families Perlidae and Perlodidae. Enjoy!
Episode 38: Green Rock Worms
Aka Green Caddis, Green Sedges or Rhyacophilidae. A common, easily identified caddis - at least in it's larval stage, that has wonderful behavior that makes it fun and effective to fish. We'll talk about the critter - but also a lot about the flies and the history of the flies that imitate them.
