Ole Time Woodsman Fly Dope is Not Sold in Stores!

Ole Time Woodsman Fly Dope is Not Sold in Stores!

Most outdoor enthusiasts say that one of the most valuable things in their backpack, tackle box, camping gear, or home is a bottle of Ole Time Woodsman Fly Dope.

The expense of sourcing and/or duplicating the production process of the original 1882 formula in today's market is very costly! However, if the formula is not exact, then it is not the original! In order to keep our customers from mortgaging the farm to buy a bottle of Fly Dope, we have decided to eliminate all distributor and retail margins and sell only on the Internet or through retailers who want to keep their margins in order to provide you with the World's First and Best Protection Against All Biting Insects!"

We are confident that just like our founder, Obie Sherer who sold his first bottle of Fly Dope to a logging camp in Maine, we can keep the tradition alive, One Bottle at a Time, 120 years later.

Today, science has proven what we and our customer's have known all along.  Certain fragrances interfere with a biting insect's ability to detect the carbon dioxide flume that we all emit when we breathe.

That is why we say, "If they cannot find you, they cannot bite you!"

Just took this camping this weekend, put some on a bandana just like when I was a kid. Not a bite! Thank you!
