Sea Angling Club

Lyme Regis Sea Angling Club is a family-friendly sea fishing club. We run competitions and matches throughout the year for both adults and juniors. These are a great place to learn to fish, as well as get tips and advice from the more experienced anglers. Club members get a 10% discount on tackle and supplies from The Tackle Box shop, as well as a reduced fee on participating charter boats on competition days.  You can join the club at any time. Annual membership is £12 for adults, £6 for OAPs and Juniors £3!  To join, simply pop into The Tackle Box shop in Marine Parade, (opposite the rear of the Harbour Inn) Lyme Regis or contact the club secretary, Steve Sweet on 01297 445949 or 07836 591084.

If you go out on a boat ask   yourself these questions

* If I fall overboard, how do I get back on the boat?

* If I can’t get back on the boat (have I used my kill cord or is the boat motoring away from me?) how do I raise the alarm?

A VHF radio is essential, don’t rely on a mobile phone. The MAIB would advise the use of a personal locator beacon (PLB). When activated it sends out an immediate distress alert that will mobilise the emergency services.
