Angry Sand Flies

Does anyone have suggestions for how to keep sand flies from eating you alive? I used Ultrathon and did not find it to be helpful in the least. I had at least five hundred bites after three days of fishing where the little beasties were about. Help!

Yikes! Here on the coast we just need to find wind and wade out in the water to get away from them. Deet works, but it's nasty stuff. Clothing is key but it won't cover your head, neck, face and hands. Bug netting is too coarse to stop em. Sounds like wind is your only hope besides chemical warfare.
