Dave GrahamBeer Angling Association were deeply saddened and shocked to learn on February 8th 2020 that their long standing and very loyal member Dave Graham passed away following a short illness.
At the time of his death Dave was the club secretary, a role that he had held for some years along with various other posts.
Dave dedicated a lot of his time to the club and pastime of Sea Angling generally.
BDSAA will miss his input guidance, support and company, as will the various other clubs he had been associated with. He was a much liked and much missed true gent of the Sea Angling scene.

RIP Dave.

Shore Report from From Dave Foden 19/8/2020
The all nighter (15th - 16th Augiust) is always an interesting competition with different anglers having different approaches, this year was no exception.
With conditions looking favourable five anglers started their quest at Portland whilst others choose to stay local at Beer and Seaton.
The five anglers who choose to start at Portland soon caught their quota of wrasse then three were fortunate to have access to a boat and rowed across the Fleet to fish the Chesil whilst the other two proceeded to Weymouth via the Fish and Chip shop. After no luck at Weymouth West Bay was tried with a small amount of success and large tackle loses.
Whilst all this was going on Phil was sat happily on Beer beach having a very good night.
Phil won the competition with 41 points, John Stevens was second with 33 points and Jo Westlake was just one point behind on 32 points. Phil also had best specimen, a dogfish of 2 pounds 4 ounces.
Congratulations to Phil who has now moved into a twenty six point lead in the Shore Championship.
Well done to every one who fished and a special thank you to all at the Spot on cafe who fed and watered us on Sunday morning.
The next competition is at Seaton 19th September 18:00hrs to 23:00hrs.

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.
