Oh it so does mate, like so badly it's unreal. There's anglers on there, who are attached with other bait firms now LOL. We don't do deals for them mate. Don't need to, anglers use our stuff, because they want to, not because they are paid in some way. I never actually look at the website. I paid a lot of money for that. And then had to pay a lot of money a couple of years later, to make it easier to add new pages. I'm clueless about anything like that at all. I have to pay some one else to do it

To me it's just a vehicle to sell our products. I forget that people go on there to look at stuff if I'm honest with you.

It's about to get a big update soon. There needs to be a Mainline hook bait page on there. At the moment, people are still ordering them via text messages first, and then via the site. When that gets sorted, it will get a big over all update.

We have some new stuff as well of our own. We've had new stuff for quite a while, but when you can't keep up with what you already do, new stuff is just even more hard work. Last time we put new stuff on there, I had to have the website taken down for a period of days after to many orders. Just to calm things down as we were out of stock, and we would not have been able to even make what was being ordered in weeks, literally. I fear what will happen when the Mainline page goes on there. First time we put them up for sale before Xmas, we sold everything we had in a few hours. And we had a lot. I just want to go fishing most of the time and that all badly interferes with it.

Interesting thread, and when all is said and done, it has kept reasonably civil which has allowed it to continue, nice one lads!
Mark, your hookbaits have definitely sparked my interest, and I may have to try some.
Yes, your homepage needs updating
Happy new year fellas

Thank you mate. We put things on faceache that get over 2k likes (reach of 120k), and videos that get over 100k views. (I think 106k is our record). We put a video up over Xmas that got 20k views in two days. And a photo on instagram that generated over 3k likes. Another over 2k likes. We don't really do Instagram either. In todays market, that means... Ker-ching. Just cannot do it to much, or it gets to busy. Bit like it is right now

It's not been updated since we started mate photos wise. Just extra pages added. It needs an update now after six or seven years though.

PM me the name, I will sort you out mate.

That is more because they take ages to make mate. When we get a rush on one product and go out of stock... We can't just magic some more out of thin air for the next day. They take two-three weeks to make. That leads to big problems in the Summer. They used to take longer, but I have refined things over the years and managed to speed it up.

But we are always busy. And they are individually palm rolled before all that to. It's painstaking. So if we go out of stock, it's a mare. What happens is this, some one, some where, will absolutely clump somewhere, with say 3's. I will not know about it, until every single sod in that general area in the country orders 3's, en masse, at the same time. We could go from selling one amount over a month period, and that amount can times by twenty in a day under those circumstances. I'll later find out why.

I'm only here because I'm not fishing this week, and it makes no difference to what gets rolled anyway. .

I need to shut up soon though, I've opened my gob over Xmas on here, and posted a few pics on social media that have been seen by many thousands of anglers. This leads to to many orders, literally. It's in a good place nowadays, where I don't actually need to put anything up anymore. Just every now and then, just to remind new customers we have not gone out of business. But it creates to much business when I do.

It's great, and I love it all, but hand rolled hook baits that take three weeks to make are a massive pain in the arse.

Some interesting points coming up amoungst the jeeps!

How about sweet or salt curing a fermented bait? i.e to stabilise the bait (for practicality) by stopping further fermentation, yet ensnare the attraction of the original reactions..

Hi Mark,
Glad to see the dust is now settling and we can look forward to some more interesting posts on this thread.
The results of heating oils and the mix and concentration of aminos are interesting subjects for discussion.
Ian.
