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.

Welcome to the real world. This is a wonderful place. So many birds- you usually only see them in books. Some great fishing- honest. You just need luck. Ruby (my wife) caught nothing, Gerald (my son ) caught three. I caught 1 and lots of bites.

Last night tonight and a little blue tail wren flittered around our feet on the balcony as we watched the lakes just in case the trout started rising again. All quiet, so I have a glass of nice red. Brilliant place, we will definitely come again and I will be recommending it to a couple of my stressed out mates who need a good break.
