President Bush (Sr.) buys Lonely Angler plugs.

It was July, 2007 and President Bush (Sr.) had been fishing with Russian President Vladimir Putin off the coast of Maine. As the story goes, President Putin was doing quite well and "having at the fish" for the better part of the day. At the end of the day, President Bush heads to a local tackle shop and speaks with the owner.

A conversation ensues that results in the shop owner walking over to the Lonely Angler lure display with the President and a well known local guide. Together the shop owner and the guide point to the lures and one says "Mr. President, try this lure to outsmart the fish and outfish the Russian".

The President decided not to buy one Lonely Angler lure - instead he bought three!
