12 pegs


Our largest Lake, at approximately 7 acres with a large island in the middle. It’s a really beautiful pool, with trees all around. Lovely and peaceful. 12 pegs.

This is a non-day ticket pool, it’s an exclusive resident’s pool. Night fishing is allowed for guests and members. A great pool if you’re prepared to put the hard work in, the results will come.

There is no Membership or Day tickets for the Major Bill – To fish it you need to stay with us for a week.

The Major Bill lake was named after Montgomery’s staff Captain who lived in the village of Docklow. A bit of a character…. and so is this lake!

It can be hard work but put the time in and your efforts can be rewarded.
