Dennis Vause Snr- Director / Snr Retired Rotating Equipment Specialist and Mechanical Engineer

Dennis gained his engineering apprenticeship in the Army (REME) working on helicopters across the world. After Leaving the Army Dennis moved on to work in the energy sector working on operational critical equipment such as Rolls Royce Turbines and various other mission critical rotational equipment. His innovative mind and problem solving ability combined with expert engineering skills led to the creation of the ZT PRO Hooktying station.

"Everything that is on the ZT-PRO has a reason for being there, you are not receiving a rehashed version of what is already out in the market place. No gimmicks just a product that we feel takes hook tying stations to another level, the design and manufacture of every last part has been scrutinized to ensure it will stand the test of time."  Dennis Vause Snr


Dennis Vause Jnr - CEO 

Dennis has lived and worked in over 13 countries across the globe working on multinational internet infrastructure projects for large organizations such as the European Space Agency and many large blue chips organizations. With breadth of experience in the technology sector his ability to learn CAD CAM and CNC technologies has been critical to the successful testing and launch of the ZT PRO hook tying station.

"I love fishing! Anyone that knows me personally understands I put 100% into everything I do, when it comes to fishing I am obsessed. So when I started f1 fishing more and more I had to switch to 3" and 4" hooklengths, I couldn't find a hooktying station that would work for me so I went to my Dad with the problem and he delivered the goods. Put simply it works and I think there is no other hooktying station on the market that will tie hook lengths as good as the ZT PRO with its Protected  Zero Twist Technology"  Dennis Vause Jnr
