Is it just me-last couple of times down to Pueblo the flies come out about 10 AM and start biting exposed skin. I know I can suck it up but these guys bite like deer flies and hurt.

Don't like wearing deet because fish really don't like that odor and your gonna get it on your hands and lures.

How do you know it hasn't hurt your catch ratio if you use it all the time. :)
I know these things-:cool: Actually I mis-spoke. I use DEET whenever the flies are bad. My catch rate is the same when using or not using.

And many many times at 11-mile ice fishing( and you know how 11-mile can be) oUT THERE FISHING SEVERAL HOURS NOT A TOUCH PUT THE SUNSCREEN ON AND wham fish-on! Its happened waaaay too may times to be a farce.

Yes, those flies SUCK. We had the SUP boards on the river yesterday and they wouldn't leave me alone...
