MH CUSTOM LURES FACEBOOK PAGE

For more information about my handmade lures check out the "about my lures" page, in the pages list on the right of the homepage.

IMPORTANT PLEASE READ -

As of today (Sat 21st an 2017) the Paypal buttons have been removed from the stock page, and trading will be solely via my Facebook page ( https://www.facebook.com/MarkHoughtonCustomLures/ )

Sales have become very erratic via the blog and turnaround times have suffered as a result, due to large numbers of orders coming at once, then quiet periods. This also affects the ability to keep materials stocked up, which has also affected turnaround times.
In order to try and control things a little more and offer a better and faster service, I will be taking orders, and offering baits for sale on a weekly basis (ordered baits will be built the following week after taking orders, so average turnaround will be 7 days or less, obviously finished baits put up for sale will be shipped immediately).
All of the baits on the blog will still be available on regular basis via Facebook , and I will still be able to spray customers colour choices as before when taking orders. I hope this doesn`t cause too much inconvenience to customers, but changes have had to be made to improve service.

The blog will remain online, for reference purpose for the foreseeable future.

My Facebook page can be viewed without having to register, so those with no wish to register on or use Faceboook otherwise, can still keep in touch with baits put up for sale, and when i`m taking orders for particular models, as such I`m more than happy for orders to be emailed in to me for those not registered on Facebook if viewers see a sale bait they`d like to buy, or who`d like to order a particular bait when orders are being taken for them.

For those who`ve recently placed orders via the blog, please be assured these orders are in progress at the moment and will be shipped out as usual, so no need for any concern.

I can be contacted via email at markhou68 "at" aol "dot" com

Feedback Page

Constructive feedback on my lures, and indeed the website itself, is always welcome, whether positive or negative. If anyone has any feedback they`d like to offer, please use the comments below. Anyone can leave a comment, not just Blogger members but please keep it clean, otherwise the message may be removed.

cheers

  2. Hi Mark.

    Very nice lures indeed.
    Is it possible to buy your lures, when living outside of the UK. If so. What do you charge in P&P for sending to Denmark?

    Kind regards
    Jens Wennecke

  3. Hi Jens, thanks very much for the kind words. For orders over £25 postage would be included in the price. For smaller orders, contact me via email with your order, I`ll find out the postal costs and send an invoice for the total.

  7. Hi Mark.
    I´ve just received the lures from you and they look absolutely stunning.
    Can´t wait to give them a go in the local lake, but have to wait for better weather.
    I can see that you are now making a bigger jerkbait. Do you have plans for making jerkbait in 1-3 oz weight range?

    Kind regards
    Jens Wennecke

  8. Glad they arrived safely Jens. I`ll include some larger jerkbaits in the next batch of lures I build.

    Best of luck with the new lures :-)

  9. I really like that you explained the construction of your lures on the site. As far as where you said there are prettier lures out there, I'm not so sure about that; yours are as good as any of the best I've ever seen.
    Extraordinary work!

  13. Hello mate, I ordered some two lures in yellow hornet and red head, this was about 6-7 weeks ago, the payment has been taken so do you have any idea when they will be delivered?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Hi Jack, wasn`t that long ago mate....order was made on 27 Nov. They went out yesterday, so will be with you very soon. Apologies for the delay, a huge backlog of orders, and a recent death in the family has meant things have been rather hectic this last couple of weeks.

  28. first time ordering from mark,1st thing I noticed upon opening the lures was the build quality! absolutely stunning! vivid colours, good sharp hooks, strong split rings, good sturdy diving vanes which wont split or break when cranked down into structure etc. I ordered 3 lures, I've had multiple catches on 2 of them in 2 outings! And the best part is the price!! Another order coming your way! Thanks!!!!!!
