These stories form part of a diary that Zane Grey kept during his second visit to New Zealand in 1927. In them he describes two trips; one to the Bay of Islands for deep-sea fishing, and the other to the Tongariro River for its plentiful supply of trout.

Pearl Zane Grey (1872 - 1939) was an American author best known for his popular adventure novels and stories associated with the Western genre in literature and the arts; he idealized the American frontier. His novels and short stories have been adapted into 112 films, two television episodes, and a television series. While many readers know Zane Grey for his Western novels, anglers know him as a pioneering fisherman.

Zane Grey helped grow the sport of fishing into a worldwide hobby thanks to his superb storytelling. He inspired countless anglers the world over with his tales of travels and encounters with fish.

Grey was the first man to set up a mothership operation so he could travel the far seas in search of broadbill swordfish, giant tuna and leaping marlin. Grey was a tackle innovator, world-record holder and an adventurer in every sense of the word. He caught the first 1,000-pound marlin ever taken on rod and reel. It was a big blue caught in Tahitian waters.
