Somebody earlier recommended Equi-Spot, and I can personally tell you that that is one of the very best things you could do. It deters flies extremely well, as well as ticks and mosquitos. On top of flyspray and fly control (fly predators, stuff like that) we hardly ever get any horseflies. Stable flies, sure, but it's pretty surprising to see a big horsefly. We see a few small ones once in a while, but the big ones are hard to come by. You can't look at avoiding flies as ... well ... avoiding them, because you can't. You need to prevent them, by setting fly traps, parasitic wasps, Equi-Spot, and other things that seep into the skin and kill fecal larvae. Fly masks/spray/sheets are just the finishing touches.
