Do you expect important leaders to lie?

I’ve grown accustomed to hearing lies from leaders representing large banks, drug companies, insurance companies, financial institutions, food companies, congress, multi-national corporations, military industries, government agencies, and mass media. Our universities seem to take pride in producing the best liars/deceivers/spinners in Public Relations and Marketing. Our economy rewards these people excessively.

Have most people in the US come to expect leaders to make deliberately misleading statements?

Lying is how you get things done.

What is the best brand for fishing gear?

What is the best brand for plastic worms and lizards and lizard and worm hooks and also what is the best brand fishing reel, crank baits, spinner baits, line, and ect.?

Chosen Answer:

There’s no best bait companies in my opinion, especially with plastic baits. Many times you are much better off going with the “knock off” brands when buying baits. This will save you a ton of money over time and the baits will normally be just as durable and get you the same results.

If I had to pick a favorite brand of plastics, I would go with Culprit and YUM. The Culprit worms are priced very good and they have a very broad selection of baits.
YUM tends to be a bit more expensive but I do like a few of their colors and scents. I occasionally buy a certain color they have that other companies don’t quite have.

My thinking on hooks are about the same as baits. Most any hook now will do just fine durability wise BUT some are much sharper than others. I do tend to stick to the more expensive hooks on the market. Gamakatsu makes some very nice hooks.

For everything else, do some research. Some baits and reels are great for one person but terrible for another. Look at reviews of different baits and reels on different sites.
