News - updated 23rd June 2016

From Andy Osborne 24/07/2016
July 23rd saw the July area "D" rover. With the beaches being crowded and the start of the school holidays 6 of us managed to make it onto the beach. 3 elected to fish Lyme and 3 of us decided to make the 2 1/2 hour trip to Portland/Chesil cove (you got to love holiday traffic).
The fishing couldn't have been more different; Lyme was hard work but Chesil cove was alive with mackerel chasing whitebait which proved to be a problem as you couldn't get a bait to the bottom and if you did the rod tips were bouncing all over due the the mackerel crashing through the lines.
Anyhow 7 Species were caught: Mackerel, Pout, Eels, Ballan Wrasse, Dogfish, Scad and Bass with the bulk of the fish coming from the cove end.

From Dan Ward, Junior Leader 23/06/2016
After a long wait the 2016 junior shore series has begun. May’s comp was changed to 5th June and fished at Lyme harbour. 5 anglers competed and 18 fish were caught. Mostly blennies and a few corkwing and ballan wrass. Max Nevel came first winning a reel kindly given by our good sponsor Seaton angling centre.

June comp was fished on a drizzly Beer beach. 4 anglers competed catching 6 fish between them ballan wrass and 1 corkwing wrass. Best fish brought to the scales was a ballan of 2lb 4oz caught by Indi Ward who won a nice float set given again by our  great sponsor Chris Chappell at Seaton angling centre. See Results page for all results.

About us

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. 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.


Our sponsors are all from the area and we are grateful for their support and are pleased to be associated with them – Most of our members may be found to be supporting these local businesses as a matter of course, please feel free to click on the sponsors logo and find out more about them, or visit their page on our site.
