I am not sleeping well last night all thanks to the sandflys bitesss on tuesday fishing trip. I woke up 3-4 times last night due to the itch OMG!!! i got 40 over bite all over my hands, legs and body.
I totally got no idea that the sandfly are around now and are not prepared, as for the past few years we have been visiting there for countless trips liao no sandfly was spotted at all, even on my most recent trip about 3 months ago there were no sandfly yet. I'm so sad now the itch was so strong that i felt it coming out from inside deeply. If you got beaten by them before you will know what i meant and how i feel now!
Just do not know why and how they get there lol from what i knew that i read from the internet quite sometime back the sandfly could not fly their way from place to place as they are to samll to fly that far. The only reason i can think of is the sandfly are brought there by human. The sandfly must have hidded in bags of anglers lol a free ride to their new playground. They can spread very fast it just takes 1 female to lay her eggs.
On top of it the trips sucks big time the only catch for about 8 hours was a kuku caught by me on diver.
It was a sad trip
