The wealthy American author and fisherman Zane Grey first arrived in the Bay of Islands in the 1920s, with an entourage including photographers and cooks. In 1926 he published his adventures in Tales of the angler’s Eldorado, New Zealand. His flamboyant style was not always appreciated by locals, but he did more to promote New Zealand big-game fishing than any other angler.
