News - updated 26th October 2014
From Dave Graham 26/10/2014
A Good competition as at last lots of fish were caught, the only thing was the Whiting were a pain stopping you catching other species; they were coming in 2 at a time even on a pennel rig. Well done to Terry and Chris, two very good scores. The next shore competition at Branscombe is now on the 29th of November its because the Westward Trophy clashed with our original date.
From Dan Ward - Junior Leader 14/09/2014
Todays junior comp went well with 5 members present, things are picking up nicely. We even have our own club mascot, Archies dog reef! It was held along Lyme harbours north wall with a slightly choppy sea on one side and calm water on the other. 25 fish were caught with 3 different species. Blennies pollack and corkwing wrass. A winner's prize of a reel was donated by our club sponsor Chris at Seaton Angling Centre who has offered to do this for all our future junior competitions - thanks Chris. Points awarded are:- Indi Ward 18. Archie Sweetland 9. Max Nevell 8. Oliver Rodger 5. Tori Ward 4.
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.
