I have 2 questions.

Currently camping in Wilsons promontory and yesterday the temp dropped from around 42 to 18 in the matter of 2 hours. The cool change went through. Before the change we were getting annoyed with flies but after the change they have disappeared. Has the temp drop, just made them domant or does this temp drop actually kill them?

Second question: Any secret reciept for fly traps. Tried the Bunnings ones and the blood and bone in the coke bottle.

Horse or cow poo always attracts flies! so add some water to that (for drowning) and put that in your fly trap.

And fish I don't know how but you can be miles of shore and flies will find the bait on your boat.

Cheers.

Agreed!
We've left shore at dawn, and not a fly in sight when we get to our spot a couple of miles out. By 10am, thousands of flies around the bait! One of life's little conundrums....

The old Cootamundra fly veil can be quite effective,
Don't wear underdaks and simply cut a 6 inch square out of the bum of your shorts.
Concentates the flies wonderfully.

Slightly different vein (hope it's not moderated :-)
- to make the fish start biting (esp big ones), hang your bum over the stern for a serious toilet break, and the line is guaranteed to take off. In the meantime, it also keeps the flies off the sangers.

It was most likely the heat killed the flies and the ones annoying you were looking for a cool spot and an easy meal. They'll be back after it rains and their breeding sites are moist. Screening yourself off from the flies traps them on the outside. Happy Days. Pauper.
