News - updated 9th March 2015

From Andy Osborne 09/03/2015
Saturday night saw the March leg of the senior shore championship fished at Branscombe. It was a very good turn out with 11 seniors and 1 junior making to the beach. Results were very mixed with the far left of the beach producing the majority of the action and as you got closer back to the car park the fishing slowed up.
6 Species were caught (bull huss LSD, 3B Rockling, Ballan Wrasse, Pollock and whiting).
1st Darren Herbert 50 points, 2nd Andy Franklin 24 points, 3rd Scott Cooper 21 points.
Congratulations to Scott Cooper and Darren Herbert on both claiming current club records in the match. Scott Copper Bull Huss 7 lbs 11oz, Darren Herbert Ballan Wrasse 3 lbs 6oz.
Next match Burton Bradstock 25th April 2015.

From Dave Mutter - Ye Webfeller 17/02/2015
I have updated this site as per the 2015 handbook. Many pages have been changed, but in particular the old records now reflect the handbook with a new page All Time Records replacing the previous old ones.

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.

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.


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.
