Fish slicker Oct 21 1886

This ad from the October 21, 1886 edition of The Chatham Record rings true for me but I can’t put my finger on why. Maybe I’m so credulous because a raincoat either works or it doesn’t; there is no placebo effect when it comes to rain gear.

The FISH BRAND SLICKER is warranted waterproof, and will keep you dry in the hardest storm. The new POMMEL SLICKER is a perfect fishing coat and covers the entire saddle. Beware of imitations. None genuine without the “Fish Brand” trade-mark. Illustrated Catalogue free. A. J. Tower, Boston, Mass.
