Ronan's report

Saturday July 14th, 2007

Even though I've been bittin pretty bad a few times, once distictly with multiple bites on the forehead and eyebrows that left me looking and feeling like a crazed neanderthal with a masochistic slapping fetish, I can't say I've lived through the worst sandflies, biting midges (no-see-ums?), or hordes of mozzies and other winged vampiristic micro-beasts. Can I cope? Let's hope.

In the meantime, besides the commercial stuff, I'll give a try on some of the home remedies. Eating garlic laden everything and rubbing it on the soles of my feet, popping B12 vitamins like tic-tacs, washing my hair in eucalyptis, rubbing odd smelling herbs all over me, greasing up with lemon & lime oil, all while chugging gallons of root beer (that's the one with sassafras right?). I might just out stink Paul's socks, and I'm sure they'll love me on the flight back from Calgary in a couple weeks. It's an exploration.

I'll be trying to stay cool, not a steaming sweating flushed CO2-puffing mosquito magnet; most blood suckers home in on heat. A few quick dip will soothe and cool the tormented soul. Either that or hope there's a softer tastier bit of flesh for them to consume and desicate. I may also donate some blood to the professional plebotomists, pray for good karma and hope the mozzies skeetos realize the well is running dry and move along.


P.S. Got a tutorial for Janman's Floating Gummi Minnow this week on the PoD! I met up with GregM and Jan for a little fishing last weekend. Now you too can catch bonefish on the dry fly.
