What's the magic potion to keep these nasty things off of you? Was out yesterday on the Cooper and was swarmed by them everytime I stopped. Tried "Off" spray but that certainly didn't keep them down.

Try Avon "Skin So Soft". It's oily as all get-out and you smell pretty terrible, but it seems to do the trick...

I know it sounds stupid but get some bounce dryer sheets and rub yourself down with one. If you don't like that, PM stonoman. Last time I went fishing with him he had some cedar oil stuff that kept everything away. It stinks pretty bad though. I forget where he got it.

This stuff isn't as oily as skin-so-soft & I think it works better.

Richie nailed it. It's Skin So Soft with no odor plus has SPF 30. Well worth $16, plus they have 2 for 1 sales periodically.
If I go out on someone's boat, I buy the gas and leave them that day's spray can.

Rub down with some copper tone 30 spf it works well too... Re apply it when they start nibbling cause its wearing off. I use this at work a lot and it really helps.

Repel Lemon Eucalyptus is the only thing I've found that works for no seeums. Downfalls, you have to re-apply often and the lemon eucalyptus odor is STRONG.

Cant the DEET stuff have an ill affect on mono fishing line? Does skin so soft have a similar problem?

Check under Avon in the white pages for a sales person, and there may be a local store.
There is no DEET in SSS Bug Guard/ SPF30 no odor spray.

Oh yea. Not sure if it is the deet or what but i know it will make mono brittle. got just a small amount on my leader the other day and it broke when i gave a very light tug.

No, but if you have an AVON lady she can get it for you or I can put you in touch with a lady that sells it. They also make a non SPF version. Active ingredient is Picaridin and it works great.

Yeah, but do you consider a dog to be a filthy animal? I wouldn't go so far as to call a dog filthy but they're definitely dirty. But, a dog's got personality. Personality goes a long way.

Pretty much what everyone said about the SSS, and add to that if your like me and were a hat 99% of the time. One Bounce sheet under your hat. I've even went as far as stapling them in.
