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.
