Ross Bain - Inventor & Director
After watching friends & family lose countless fish from tying the infamous ‘Granny knot’, Ross began tying hooks on for others so they could start landing some fish…. he soon realised there was a niche in the market for such a device, to assist people to tie that ‘perfect’ knot themselves, hence the birth of Hook-Eze.
After making numerous alterations to his original design & many prototypes later, Hook-Eze has developed into a World’s First Multi-Function Fishing Tool which is taking the recreational fishing industry by storm!
Ross’s experience with design, manufacture, particularly plastic extrusion & plastic injection moulded products goes back to when he first left school & worked in a Thermoplastics factory.
Being a father of three children, Ross's main focus is safety & he is very stringent with all levels of manufacture & Quality Control.
Ross’s focus is on Research & Development and the design & manufacture of top quality, innovative products at affordable prices.
“We all call Ross ‘The Thinker’ – he thinks & creates a lot of work for others!”
