Table of Contents

Anchored Podcast:

Dave Zielinski has fished periodical and annual cicada emergences for decades on waterways in Pennsylvania, New York, Ohio, Michigan, West Virginia, Virginia, and Maryland. He recently released his book, Cicada Madness, which is the first book dedicated to the patterns, techniques, and more importantly, the science of locating the best hatches of these insects.

In this episode of Anchored, we learn more about Dave and his passion for these incredible bugs. Be sure to stay tuned for the last half of today’s show, as we’ve included Dave’s awesome presentation that he gave for our members last month. If you haven’t checked out the show on YouTube yet, this is definitely a great episode to watch. You can find my channel by just typing in Anchored with April Vokey. See you there!
