News - updated 10th April 2014

From Dave Graham 10/04/2014:
What an awful competition last Saturday with thick fog until 10pm then it lashed down with rain. The fishing was no better only 10 fish caught 11 anglers fished but the tackle loss was very heavy. Ross went home early having run out of leads, Stewart and Dave lost 6 to 8 lots of gear. This is normally a clean beach so I guess that the winter storms have done more damage to the sea bed than we all realised. Just hope the next one at Cogdon will fish better.

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.
