News - updated 19th May 2017

From Andy Osborne 19/05/2017
Last Saturday saw the May leg of the senior championship, it was booked to be fished at Seaton but with strong winds forecast leading up the the match it was changed to a rover.
The top scores came from Wayne Burgess and Darren Herbert fishing Lyme and both scoring 17 points
Second was Dave Graham scoring 15 points, third went to Julian Driver with 8 points.
Two stunning fish were landed at Seaton beach the first was a Plaice for Dave Graham weighing 3lbs 9oz 142.5% and the second  a Ballan wrasse for Julian Driver weighing 4lbs 1oz 81.25%.
The wind and rain did show all be it later then expected but that didn't deter Tim from stoking up the hob in the back of his van a knocking up some much needed bacon butties at the weigh in.
The next match is at Branscombe on the 17th June 1800-0100 fishing against Honiton for the lively lady cup, will be good to see another good turn out and bring home the victory.

About us

BDSAA is a small local club that meet at the Dolphin Hotel offering an informal focus for Sea Anglers in the area, we maintain a membership of about 40 people. We fish from both the shore and boat approximately once a month (next dates and venues on our “Fixtures page”). Primarily a species hunting club we concentrate our fishing to the greater Lyme Bay area in the main, but do venture out if a member has a particular wish to fish a specific venue. We regularly fish against other clubs, mainly those from East Devon i.e. Honiton and Lyme Regis, but would always welcome hosting a visiting club for a match. Check out our Cup Competitions. For Club record catches click here.

The club has been in existence since 1965 when it was simply known as the” Beer Fishing Club”, over the years it has kept to the same format of being informal, friendly and welcoming always of course maintaining it’s base in the beautiful picturesque village of Beer.

Our membership is drawn mainly from the Beer and Seaton area, however we do have members living as far a field as Taunton and Crewkerne in Somerset. Download a membership form in either Adobe Reader Adobe PDF (opens in another window) or Microsoft Word Word.

The Club has statements for Environment & Ecology, Future Assurance, Equal Opportunities and Young People & Safety.
