News - updated 30th April
From Chris Sweetland 30/04/2013
In near perfect conditions 16 members of Beer Angling club fished the April shore comp on Saturday 27th April night. On a very busy beach, there were fish being caught from the off, with plenty of Dabs, Plaice and Smooth hounds coming to the beach. The better fish seemed to be coming from the western end. The top 3 on the night all fished in that direction.
In first place with a score of 187.05%(3 species) was Luke Bartlett, 2nd went to John Adkin on 181.14%(3 species) and 3rd was Terry Harnall with 175.34%(4 species).
Top Junior was Elliot Driver with a score of 138.44%, he also managed to catch his first ray from the shore, a thorn back of 3lb 9.5oz, and 2nd in his first club match was Indi Ward with 60%.
The venue of our next match has changed from Cogden to Branscombe as the road from Axminster to Bridport is closed for the night, fishing time remain the same(16:00-23:00).
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.
