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.

This was by far the best holiday resort down south I have ever been to in Western Australia. It was so peaceful and I caught 2 things- a stick and a tree! WOOHOO But we fed the donkeys some apples…they are so cute. We had the fire going the entire time. The cottages were so cosy and comfortable….The views from the verandah was amazing and we could always see the donkeys. And they followed my sisiter for her sandwich. We hope to be back here soon.
