HullPosted: June 21, 2012
It’s hard enough drawing the hull of a boat but drawing it while dealing with shad flies is even harder. They flew into my palette, landed on my sheet, stuck to my clothing and tried their best to get into my mouth. It’s like this every year if you live near the lake but thankfully the season is short, as is the lifespan of the fly itself. Sometimes they are so abundant near outdoor lights that city crews need to sweep them up in the morning.
