Do anglers follow brands like footie fans follow teams?

I mean, how many have a favourite brand and as such stay faithful to it, wear the team colours, only use 'team' luggage, that kind of thing?

Sort of... I use Korum tackle bags... not because of the brand but because they do what I want... if summat better comes along I'll change

I'll use what works, box preston, rod bag maver, rods by drennan cadence maver grays preston, reel, cadence sonic daiwa, not fussy as long as it does what I want it to do, might look like a jumble sale on the bank but I don't care.

I used to only buy Daiwa rods and Shimano/ABU reels. Nowadays the quality is available more readily so I will use anything that works and lasts.

I only go for what I feel comfy with. I have rods by Shimano, Daiwa, Korum and Maver. All are different and gives me a choice depending on where I'm fishing. Although with this covid thingy, it's limited my options.

My kit is made up of loads of different brands, Daiwa luggage, Drennan feeder rod, Maver feeder rod, Preston reels, Korum chair and accessories, and probably a few other names that I can't remember.

Not at all really. Most my natural venue coarse rods, reels, terminal tackle are all pretty much just drennan save for the line and a few odd bits and bobs but all my other gear is a mish mash of various brands. I just buy what seems good as not too bothered by the label.

Keep plugging Neil you will be offered sponsorship eventually:p. Seriously though, I had an Avanti box, quite happy with it until a leg clamp gave up the ghost and I bought a Preston Space Station. The boxes actually looked a carbon copy of each other but the build of the Preston was infinitely superior.

I buy what I can afford and works for me although I do seem to have bought a chunk of Maver gear. Two rods, large side tray, stink bag. I counter this by using a second hand unknown rod bag and a Matt Hayes carryall thus confirming I shop at Boyes and am therefore a professional.
Too much branding and you look like this guy:
