No MH I'm not here to make friend with anyone here . I toss my educated baited hook out and the uneducated moron's bit it then swallow while I set the hook so hard their mother's feel it . If they want to play stupid so be it as the issue of Syn. Oil and where it comes from is so easy to find unless one is either stupid , lazy or both . Most here are both so be it .
