Fly Fishing in the Spring in the Southern Forest

Early morning rise and a fly rod!Mike Roennfeldt, Western Australian Newspaper fishing writer, spent  several days at Clover Cottage   wallowing in water and trout.  It was wonderful having Mike and Sarah spend time with us having lots of laughs and enjoying the local wines. While Sarah and I checked out the Country Gardens on display,  Mike used every spare moment to slip over to the Balbarrup lake  for a spot of trout fishing or try his luck on the trout ponds at Clover Cottage.

Very nice stay.  The trout are there but very elusive.  Managed to catch two.  Persistence is the key.  Sunrise and sunset are the best times.  Used a small orange breasted wobbler lure.  They taste great when smoked!!
