Hirum Walker: "used this when i first started cutting wood. yessir,it keeps everything away,lol "

 

“It brings back a lot of memories, the scent does,” Skip Theobald said. “And it works. That’s No. 1.”

Skip Theobald, who grew up in Brewer, remembers he and his grandfather using Ole Time Woodsman when they’d go fly fishing together. The strong-scented concoction would keep them hidden from the hoards of blackflies and mosquitoes, biting insects that inevitably pester anglers throughout the summer in Maine.

As an ole time Mainer, Ole Time Woodsman Fly Dope has always been a staple in my tackle box.  However, now that I am a snow bird I was not prepared for the vicious noseeums in Florida!  I sent for a bottle of fly dope, sprayed it on my fishing hat, and NOSEEUMS NO MORE!

I found where you can buy Old Time Woodsman and wow its expensive but if you have ever been in peak black fly season its a small price to pay.

Hello, I purchased a bottle of your fly dope through Amazon. I live in way upstate N.Y. (Adirondacks) and your product works really well.   Barbara

My husband loves this stuff and it works!!  Lori

I originally bought your Ole Time Woodsman Fly Dope to repel biting black flies. I am very allergic to those bites and have to carry an epi-pen. I have not been bit for two years since using your product. Basically I dabbed it where skin might be exposed and on my scarf. 

This month I went on a week long backpack in the Hoover Wilderness in California and the mosquitos were just rabid.  I did not want to stain my clothes so I put the juice on my palms and rubbed them together.  Then I ran my palms over my clothes. NO stains and NO mosquito bites. NO more DEET for me. Great product.
