News - updated 23rd August 2017

From Andy Osborne 23/08/2017
Saturday night/ Sunday morning saw the August leg of the senior shore championship.
11 anglers took the the beach heading to locations like Chesil cove, Weymouth, Cogdon, Lyme and Seaton. A total of 96 fish were registered on the score cards by 0900 Sunday morning spread across 13 species.
Top rod of the night went to Julian Driver with 53 points from a combination of fish including Conger, Dogfish, Mackerel, Plaice,Pouting and Smoothounds.
Best fish for the night went to Ross Lambert with a dogfish of 2lbs 6oz 95%. Ross also landed an undulate ray of 11lbs 7oz 87%.
The top three rods on the night were:
J.Driver 53 points, G. Bickers 40 points, R.Lambert & A. Osborne 27 points.
A big thank you for everyone that turned out to fish this match as it ends up taking over the whole weekend with the time taken for prep and cleaning down and sleeping Sunday, so your support is appreciated as is that of the Wives and girlfriends.
A final thanks to Chris and his team at Seaton Tackle shop for making sure the kettle and griddle were hot ready for the much needed Bacon sandwiches and cuppa at the weigh in.

From Dave Graham 08/08/2017
Well 7 Boat comps out of 8 got to be a record. A lot of fish caught with 2 specimens Nigel with a Red Gurnard 1lb 5ozs and Garry with a Tub Gurnard 3lb 5ozs. It was good to catch bream again the best one going to Les with a fish of 2lb 8 ozs. Mike P had a Bass of 6lb. Well Done to Richard with 10 species.

From Dan Ward Junior Report - 28/07/17
This months  junior shore match was due to be fished at Branscombe but was changed to a Rover as the beach was going to be too busy on such a gloriously sunny day. 3 juniors decided to give it a go in Seaton and Beer, including new member Harvey Dyer on his first ever fishing trip. 10 fish were landed: Ballan wrass corkwing wrass and pollack.
1st Harvey Dyer 17pts, 2nd Devon stone 16pts, 3rd Riley Osbourn 1pt.
When the comp ended the boys fishing beer decided to carry on as it was going so well and still had a few worms left to use. And what a great idea that turned out to be when Harvey landed his 7lb Ballan wrass 140% specimen! Not only a new junior record but smashes our historical record which has stood at 5lb 6oz for the last 25 years and also the Wyvern regions junior record that stood the past 38 years! Joining our other hall of famer Dave Graham on the regional records list. What a way to start . We'll done Harvey, so glad I was there to see it. I would also like to thank Seaton kayak/angling centre on behalf of Harvey for donating a winners prize.

About us

BDSAA is a small local club that meet at the Dolphin Hotel 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.
