    OK it would have taken them a bit of time...


    Went fishin' today and I almost got nibbled to death.

    It was distracting as they went after the hair on my legs.
    ...and to think city folk pay good money for a pedicure like this. biglaff

    No I didn't catch anything worth eatin', just lots of small smallmouth bass.

    Which is why they call it fisnin' and not catchin'. [tongue]

    Drives me crazy when the lakes are filled with baitfish, can't seem to catch a darn thing because their food supply is so huge.

    Have heard stories about mosquitoes when the tundra thaws out and eggs start hatching.

    I was stationed out on Adak Island back in the early 70's.

    First time I went walking out in the tundra I had two mosquito's land on either side of me when I was taking a break. One turned to the other and said "Think we should eat him here or take him someplace else before the big guys get here ?" [tongue].
