Thread: Clegs

  1. #1


    Has anyone else been mobbed by clegs lately?

    I was out for about four hours yesterday, and swatted dozens, never seen numbers like it.

    As far as I can tell, I only picked up one bite, on the back through a T-shirt, but it certainly puts you off shooting, when you've got the cross hairs lined up, and you hear their wings whizzing past your ear!

    An old jungle trick - put some tiger balm on the bite to take away the stinging. Unfortunately I won't be able to get some until tonight. Ouch!

    If it's one of these I'd be first in the queue to have a swat!

    Between them and the midges, I don't know whats the worst.

    Definitely agree that the numbers are up, never had so many clegg bites than this year.

    The wee bassa's even bit me through my macwet gloves a couple weeks ago.

    My two young boys have been blighted with them whilst being out and about, wonder why there seems to be so many around this year???
