News - updated 27th September 2016

From Dan Ward, Junior Leader 27/09/2016
The 18th September’s Junior shore comp was a Lyme rover. It was a quiet affair with only two members duelling it out. Both opted to roam the harbour walls in search of their quarry. Six fish were caught four species. Corkwing and Ballan Wrasse, Blennies and a Garfish. Top rod was Archie Sweetland and runner up Indi ward. As always our kind sponsor Seaton kayak/angling centre donated an excellent prize for the winner. Scores on the day were
Archie sweetland 13pts and Indi ward 7pts.

The August comp was cancelled due to bad weather

July’s comp was held at Branscombe beach. Three members fished. 15 fish caught 3 species. Corkwing and Ballan Wrasse and Mackerel. Scores were: Tori ward 24pts, Max Nevell 11pts and Riley Osbourn 3pts. See Results page for the Junior results.

From Andy Osborne 11/09/2016
The 10th September saw the Lyme bay trophy and our club match held at Seaton. It was fished from 1800-0000 to say the fishing was hard is an understatement 45 fished the match with more than half the field failing to register a bite.
The winning side was Axe Valley with 55 points Beer second with 14 points westbay third 10 points Lyme 4th 5 points Honiton 5th 4 points.
I am really proud with our second place as we had the second lowest turn out (5) Honiton had the lowest with 2 (think both clubs suffered with various holidays clashing with the date).
From a club match side of it the match was all about Dan "big dog" Ward (guessing hes changed his name as that was how it was written on the score sheet).....
Dan bagged Ballan wrasse and dogfish to claim first place. Dan ward 13 points, Tim Mitcham and Darren Herbert 7 points Andy Osborne 3 points. Dave Graham was absent from this match but is still topping the table.

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.

The Club has statements for Environment & Ecology, Future Assurance, Equal Opportunities and Young People & Safety.
