News - updated 19th March 2018

From Andy Osborne 19/03/2018
Saturday saw the March leg of the shore championship fished at Beer beach. The weather took its toll along with commitments to the Grizzly run the next day but 6 turned out to face the cold and snow.
The finishing was slow with only one Bullhuss being caught in daylight hours taken by Andy Osborne.
After dark the fishing improved but only slightly with Tim Mitcham landing a Whiting and Dogfish in quick succession.
Not to miss out Dan Ward was also soon into the fish landing a Dog and undersized conger. Tim was next to land a fish with a nice Whiting of 1lbs 1 1/4 oz 71% specimen weight (best fish on the night).
Andy was quick on his heels with another Huss.
This match saw the first time the new count back system was brought into play with Tim and Andy both scoring 7 points. As Tim caught more species he will be awarded the full 25 championship points for first place and Andy 20 championship points for second place.

From Dave Graham 16/10/2017
Well done to Nigel, Mike and Les who all scored over 400pts with Nigel having the best fish of the day with a Red Gurnard of 1lb 4.5ozs 102.05% .The pairs have got new leaders Mike P and Nigel D knocking long time leaders Andy and Jo off top spot and down to 3rd with Garry and Les moving in to second. On the species Dave G is in the lead with 14 species Nigel 13 and Andy and Jo 12.

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.
