Man. In retrospect, "plague of locusts" should have been such EASY money...

If June showers bring July flies, what do Julyflies bring?

That will clog your cars radiator real quick.

My thoughts exactly.  like if you have a subaru WRX with the big hood scoop, or you put a snorkel on a jeep, drive through a swarm and... FWWOOMP. engine dies.

Also, those things look nasty and i'm glad I'm not there.  The south is a beautiful place but the sheer amount of nuissance insects the further south you get from the midwest is impressive.

Of course, this means you have to accept living in the midwest, which is a different kind of hell.

We get swarms of crane flies in the summer sometimes.  I hate those clumsy, gangly farkers.  The only bugs that I will murder on sight when I'm outdoors.

Good bass and trout fishing. Really brings out the top water fish.

Pretty much anywhere besides California sucks.

I was going to write that "we've had a lot of mayflies this year" and then I saw THOSE photos! WTF

I crossed this bridge at Winona during the mayfly hatch one year. I had to stop in the middle and use the ice scraper because I couldn't see through the windshield. Once you're away from the river it's not so bad.

"In fact, it's all better now?"
"Better?"
"Better get a bucket."
"...and?"
"Okay, and a shovel."

June bugs out front shoulda told ya

Usually a mayfly hatch means the fish will be biting, but looking at the pics, I'd say all the fish a laying at the bottom of the lakes and ponds with engorged bellies. We can get some pretty big hatches here in Maine but not call the local town plow big.
