What lighting setup do you use for your macro photography please? I am struggling to find a suitable flash bracket and cord to take the flash off camera to the side. Any recommendations please?

you could look into making/buying something like this
I use a Manfrotto 233B arm in conjunction with a off camera lead and strobe for all my macro work, it's expensive, but well made and can be used to position your flash-head in all manner of different positions. Cameraking via Amazon have them on offer at the moment for a very reasonable £42.76. Get a separate Hot-Shoe Ball Head Umbrella Holder Flash Bracket and attach this to the end of the Manfrotto Arm and it makes the whole set-up even more versatile. Obviously you'll need to budget for a TTL lead aswell, but you can pick up good quality ones for less than £15 pretty well anywhere.
