Fly Fishing WA

We are all hoping that the warm to HOT weather is finally coming to an end in the southwest of  WA!   As the mornings and evenings begin to cool and the mist begins to rise on the   lakes,    trout  at Clover Cottage  begin to rise once again!!!

Fly fishing enthusiasts are now checking on the conditions   at  Clover Cottage’s exclusive    flyfishing lake .  Under the watchful eye of Paul  Thomsett,   trout farmer with 27 years experience and owner of Clover Cottage, the trout are surviving and thriving in the 15 hectacre lake!

Hear from our guests

For our honeymoon we had a truly relaxing week here at Clover Cottage.  We enjoyed the tranquil setting, happy donkeys and goats, cute little blue wrens, sheep etc.  Eggs from the chickens were tasty on the bread baked fresh in our cottage.  We loved the smell of the bread baking on our arrival.  Myself being a keen angler, I flicked all manner of lures in search of trout and refin.  Red or black spinners worked the best on the redfin and blades and lipless crankbaits also got me a few ferals.  After a week of casting in the mid 30s weather I finally got a couple of trout DEEP in the bottom lake.

We had a lovely time
