News - updated 15th December 2014
From Dave Graham 15/12/2014
Well that was the last competition of the year and a cold one at that -my beach buddy had frost on the inside and out. As for the fishing it was Whiting all night with a few Dogfish and pout but Robin did manage it sneak out a Pollock . The top 3 were 1st Terry Hartnett 21pts, 2nd Froggy 19pts, 3rd Robin Griffiths 16pts. Terry had the best fish with a whiting of 1lb 8ozs 100% -it should have been 2lb plus but it was so thin. Well thanks to all that fished through out the year best luck to Andy and Dave as they will be running the shore competitions next year - DG.
From Dan Ward - Junior Leader 15/12/2014
Well thats the end of our first year for the Junior series. 4 juniors turned out to brave the cold at Seaton beach and held their own fishing alongside the Seniors in the Xmas Fayre. The whiting just kept coming! Archie, Indi and Max were tied on 11 points each so the winner was decided by who stayed on the longest. Congratulations archie who fished the full 6hrs with temperatures as low as -1c and still smiling come the end. He went home with a lovely spinning rod given by our sponsor Chris Chappell at Seaton Angling Centre and a £10 tackle voucher. Max got 2nd place and a £10 voucher, Indi and Tori came 3rd and 4th both collecting a £5 voucher. Best fish was a whiting of 10oz for Tori. Also congratulations to Indi who won the series overall with a score of 49 points and Max who was runner up with 41. Thanks to all the kids and parents who supported this competition throughout the year. Hopefully we will see you all again next May. Tight lines - Dan. Click Here for Junior Results.
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 PDF (opens in another window) or Word.
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.
