In the 1920s, Irishman Alan Pye, discovered the incredible fly fishing on the reaches of the Waikato River and realised his dream to build a fishing lodge. Before long, the fame of The Huka Lodge had spread to every corner of the fly fishing world. As its reputation spread the Lodge attracted such famous anglers as HM Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother; Charles Lindbergh; James A. Mitchener (who wrote part of Return to Paradise there) as well as many famous film stars and public figures of the time.
