I mean until you experience a swarm of black flies in the middle of the lake, you will never understand it. Hundreds, thousands of hungry biting horse flies in the MIDDLE of the damned lake! Miles from anything!
There is nothing I have experienced that can make a day on the water less enjoyable.
Amen! And, they seem to have two, highly developed capabilities:
1. They are able to maintain exact ankle-biting altitude in the cockpit.
2. They can back up in mid-air and reisist effective swatting about 95% of the time. I can't tell you how many times I've screamed: Haaa, you bastard! when i was sucessfull in nailing one of the many that were tormeting me.
