A few days before heading to Uganda, I sprayed all my fishing clothes with Sawyer Premium Insect Repellent. I have never tried this product before and hoped it would keep the tsetse flies away. The product worked great as the tsetses did not bother me at all. They normally are unbearable. Sawyer claims the sprayed clothing is good up to 42 days or 6 washes. I am sure it would work great on mosquitoes! The active ingredient is permethrin. High recommend this type of product! Cool

Thanks for the recommendation. Sawyer makes some great repellent products that I've used for years. Never seen a Tsetse fly though. They must be bad huh?

Larry: Tsetse fllies are as big as horse flies and are atttracted to dark clothing. They can drive you crazy and put some big bites marks on you. They normally come in hords of thousands! When in Tanzania driving in the jungle between river camps they were unbearable. Never had an issue in the boat with them however and guess I am lucky. I really think the product I mentioned helped out tremendously. Definately am going to buy it next time. Friend just back from Murchison. Largest Nile Perch was 163lbs. Cool
