Tock Rush’s New Zealand Fishing Lodge

Class Secretary John Stone writes:

Did any of you ever visit TOCK RUSH’S fishing lodge in New Zealand when it was active back in the seventies? Although Tock is gone, the lodge is still there. I have known of it since covering it as ’53’s Secretary in the 1970s, but it was not until our twelfth trip to Te Anau in New Zealand’s Fiordland last November that Marcia and I finally drove north the 45k, much on a private road, to see the place for ourselves. Retired Orvis chairman Leigh Perkins describes it in his memoir about his sporting life. It is well worth a visit, with views southwest toward Lake Te Anau and the Fiordland mountains. There remains a chance to wet a line in the famed Upukerora River immediately in front of the lodge. In the meantime, have a look at the lodge from your computer.
