Most would be familiar with the iconic Australian brand of tools Sidcrome.
For those that are not Sidcrome was a renown Australian tool maker that offered a lifetime guarantee on their products, with a slogan ya can`t hand a man a grander spanner.
Someone smarter than me once declared that a lure was only a tool used by fishermen.
In a time where it seems everything made comes out of China including Viruses, it is refreshing to find excellence home grown in the tradition of Sidcrome
I received a parcel of Color set Lures I had ordered from Mark A Lures today.
5 Sets of 4 and I ordered an extra couple to swim.
Now they have arrived it is doubtful that I will ever wet them as I can catch fish on an uninspired mass produced plastic lure.
Mark A lures are a work of art and already I refer to them as my Sidcrome collection cause ya carnt hand a man a finer lure.
The picture dose not do them justice.

Mark certainly turns out some of the best looking and performing lures around...

Kimmo

100% agree. We have just received a fair batch of MarkA Lures in-store to sell but as you say, they are too good to fish. Mark does an amazing job and is equal to any timber lure maker in the country at present.

Cheers TB

It is painful putting on a new Mark A Lure to fish as they are just exceptional- but into the water they go. Love his lures but also love to fish them

you don't havta be pretty to fish
