Exchange Books can be signed out for a maximum period of 7 days allowing suitable time for return, post use. They can be drawn from any of four local fishing tackle shops (2 in each):

1. ‘Dorchester Angling Centre’ (ex-Top Floor Tackle), Dorchester.
2. ‘Purbeck Angling Centre’, Wareham.
3. ‘West Bay Watersports’, West Bay (Nr. Bridport).
4. Weymouth Angling Centre.

On each occasion, it will require the surrender of the individual's DDAS membership card for the duration of the Exchange book use, which will be retained pending the return of the Exchange
Book in use. Failure to return the Exchange Books without due reason within the specified time, may result in that member being disqualified from use of these books for the remainder of the season.



DDAS members are permitted to take a guest (or 2) to the majority of our waters.

Guest tickets can be obtained from the tackle shops MENTIONED ABOVE, including:
Alan's Angling in Dorchester,
Chesil Bait n' tackle.

The cost for a 'any age' guest for 1 day is £8 (for the 2021/22 club year).

Alternatively...they can purchased by Paypal at a cost of £10. For details of this, email: .  An 'e-ticket' will then be emailed to you.

The waters on our books that also run a day ticket system themselves expect you to obtain a ticket from them, not us.

We are not allowed  guests at Heath lake for H&S reasons but could, under certain conditions, issue a temporary membership instead of a guest ticket...POA after contact by email.
