Many years ago a friend and I drove from home in Ohio to Wisconsin to look at colleges. Taking advantage of the week off for college exploration in our senior year of high school, we first went to the French River in Ontario to do some fishing. We canoed into a nice lake and had a good time catching walleyes and northern pike. The last evening we were there the black flies hatched and swarmed around us biting without mercy. I was wearing a dark knit hat that must have attracted them. We spread on military surplus bug dope with mostly DEET (N,N-Diethyl-meta-toluamide, a nasty organic solvent), but the black flies still bit like crazy.
