Nothing can ruin a fishing trip or holiday more than constant attention and irritation from flying and other biting insects like mosquitoes, midges and ticks not to mention the potential health risks involved. We recently tried out Ultrathon Insect Repellant from 3M in the great outdoors on a trip over to the Labrador region of Canada.

They Say

3M™ Ultrathon™ Insect Repellent provides long lasting protection from biting insects via advanced Time Release Technology. Used by the UK Armed Forces, recommended by Ray Mears, Ultrathon repellent assures the right protection at home & abroad for you and your family.

The secret behind Ultrathon Insect Repellent

Initially developed for the military to provide long lasting protection in tropical environments, the Time Release Technology enables DEET, which repels mosquitoes, midges and other biting insects, to be released over a longer period of time. The benefit for regular holidays in the UK and abroad is a reduced need for reapplication and peace of mind for you & your family.

We Say

P1060890_544163331.jpgThere's no doubt that using Ultrathon insect repellant made a large difference to the number of bloodsucking mosquitoes foolhardy enough to try and come close for a feast. One application in the morning and a backup application in the evening were all that were needed. From past experience other staff members have also found Ultrathon successful against mosquitoes in the tropics and we will be trying it against the dreaded Scottish midges soon too we hope.

Thanks to Ultrathon we were able to actually enjoy both our fishing and relaxing back at the lodge without the constant irritation of being bothered by bugs unlike some of our companions who did not bother to apply any repellant and suffered the consequences.

Available at Sportfish and most outdoor stores plus Tescos.
