Thanks everyone. In my case I don't think it's horse flies. There's no actual pain, just a small pink spot that itches when I get home. Certainly not as nasty as a Blandford fly. Maybe a mozzie?
As phone says, I am hesitant with fly repellant as if it gets on the hands it can also be fish repellent. Does anyone know if mozzie's can bite through clothing?
I once used a plastic folding chair the plastic version of the old seats you hire on the beach and one got me through it ,i know it did i wriggled as i felt it stick me and bent its pointy thing ,the bugger was on the other side of the chair pinned by its point!big bugger aswell !
I never found such stuff as jungle formula or autan had any effect on fishing (nor jungle formula wasp away either) never noticed a difference on catch rate pre or after application

PS a horse fly makes a blandford fly look like its kissing you! You will jump
