Ole Time Woodsman Fly Dope

While fishing in Maine in 1910, Obie Sherer and his his fishing buddy, Dr. Donald Adams decided they needed to come up with something to make spring fishing in the Maine wilderness a little more enjoyable. Working from an old 1882 recipe, they mixed up a batch of Fly Dope. On their next trip to Maine, a logging crew spotted Obie fishing peacefully. Obie told the foreman all about his Fly Dope and agreed to make a batch for the company. When the first batch was used up, the woods crews clamored for more. As a result, Obie decided to go into business and named his new product "Ole Time Woodsman" in honor of his first customers.
Since then, generations of outdoors folk have continued to rely on
Ole Time Woodsman to make their wilderness experience more comfortable, peaceful and memorable.
