Thanks for the tips. We're hoping to do a lot of (flat water) kayaking. We both have good bug shirts and pants. Bugs are my biggest concern, not me so much but Shirley. Two knats can drive her inside...in her defense, a bite on her swells up to a quarter and lasts a couple days. On me, I have a little bump for an hour at most. In the 70's I fished Canada and experienced black flies. I remember literally not being able to see my jeans because they were covered in flies. I'm hoping it won't be that bad. The manager said by mid June they're starting to die down.
