News - updated 5th February 2017
From Andy Osborne 05/02/2017
Saturday the 4th Feb saw the second round of the senior shore championship which was held at Lyme Regis. 9 turned out to fish what turned out to be a nice evenings fishing even if we did get a lashing from the heavy rain for the first 30 mins of the match. Three of us headed to the main beach to fish the sand in search for the bonus flat fish close to the shore line and the others opted to fish from the harbour wall areas.
44 fish were entered on the score cards with 5 species: dogfish, pout, silver eels, flounder and plaice.
It was reported that the guys fishing the harbor wall also had a couple under sized bass and conger so plenty of fish were showing. The only flat fish were caught from the main beach in the form of place and flounder.
From Dave Graham 10/1/2017
Well what a start to the new year 10 anglers enjoyed a fine day both weather and fishing. 11 species were caught -not bad for January. Stewart Leach landed the first specimen of the year with a 1lb 5ozs cuckoo Wrasse but most surprising thing we caught 3 summer species: Garfish, Red Gurnard and also 3 Bream and well done to Jo Westlake his first competition for 2 years and came out first with 433 pts.
BDSAA is a small local club based at Beer Social Club 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.

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 PDF (opens in another window) or Word.
The Club has statements for Environment & Ecology, Future Assurance, Equal Opportunities and Young People & Safety.
