I was badly bitten on Lake Ontario last summer and could not figure out how an ordinary looking fly could be so far out on the lake and be so aggressive. I was even bitten through thick athletic socks and ended up wearing foul weather gear and boots on a sweltering hot summer’s day. That was not a pleasant alternative.
Here is an article from GAM that deals with the issue and I thought it might be of interest to fellow members.
