Angling ‘locally only’ permitted...
7 January 2021

Great to hear that angling is permitted during this lockdown but, there are restrictions.  Please be sensible and 'stick to the rules', these are:

You are permitted to fish locally. That is, as stated on the government website: 'In your village or town' NOT 'district or borough'. Therefore, as a member of DDAS you can fish:

1. At Luckfield lake if you live in Dorchester (no need to book in).

2. At Heath lake if you live in Dorchester.

3. At Potwell if you live in Bridport/Beaminster/Broadwindsor/Misterton/Bradpole.

4. At Sharnhill if you live in Buckland Newton (& other adjacent villages).

5. At Harbour Bridge if you live in Weymouth/Portland.

6. At Wool (river Frome) if you live in Wool/Bovington/E Knighton.

7. At Worgret if you live in Wareham.

8. On the Stour if you live in Hanford/Shillingstone/Child Okeford.

9. At Kingcombe if you live in Toller Percorum (& other adjacent villages).


11. Night Fishing is NOT permitted.

In our opinion, it is safer if you do as the government ask:  STAY AT HOME - PROTECT the NHS - SAVE LIVES

'Live to fish another day (when it's warmer and you might catch something)'

RIP John ‘corporal’ Smith
13 December 2020

We received the sad news this week that long standing DDAS member John "Corporal" Smith passed away on 7th December. He was an active member of the club for over 50 years, ex secretary and  president. He helped make the club what it is today. He will be sadly missed by many.

Peg 1 at Luckfield Lake was named in his honour a few years ago and is now a fitting memorial for all the work he did for DDAS. His funeral is on Thursday 17th December.
