Western Angler Feature

Matt Lilly landed a good sized Rainbow

Scott Coglan, managing editor of Western Angler and mad keen fisherman and fly fisherman took time out recently with a few fishing mates to enjoy a spot of fly fishing on the new Balbarrup  fishing lake, which Paul has stocked with mature Browns and Rainbows.  As a result of a “superb fly fishing experience” Scott wrote an article about the new trout lake and fly fishing experience.

Check out the latest  Oct/ Nov 2011 issue of Western Angler Magazine to read up about Scott’s fishing experience.  You can also download PDF copy of the article from the link below.

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
