A warm welcome to all fishermen, and women out there. SFCC fishing section caters for members, chiefly in boats, wishing to fish our local waters of Lyme Bay and South Devon areas.

We look to provide a safe, supportive environment for our members to enjoy their chosen pastime, in the company of friends with a similar interest. All individuals are encouraged to improve their skills, both in respect of fishing, as well as perhaps more importantly, seamanship too. As a club, a number of forums and classes are arranged, usually during the quieter winter months, aimed at raising our members skill base in as many related topics as possible. The opportunity to also learn from fellow members is considered probably the club's best asset. We have provided a few printable fishing related downloads elsewhere on this website. It is hoped you find the information useful.

A full calendar of keenly contested boat competitions run through the fishing season of April to November inclusive. Single specimen fish are the quarry in all cases. You need only bring your biggest fish to the weigh-in. We encourage returning any fish not required for the eating.
Members are asked however, to appreciate that postponement, or cancellation of events, due to unsuitable weather, will occasionally be necessary. We have a notice board, page for updating purposes, which will normally be sorted ahead of the day concerned. But please always try to confirm details with me, Mike Whiting, on 07837 371551, if you think there may be any doubt.

Whilst our club is mainly orientated towards boat angling from our own port, we do also recognise good shore caught fish. Several of our members are keen shore fishermen and it seems appropriate to respect this. No awards are offered to shore caught fish.

SFCC's fishing calendar traditionally ends on Presentation Night, usually in January, with fishermen and cruisers all getting together to enjoy a social evening. Everyone eager for the new season to arrive, of course.

Wishing you light winds and enjoyable fishing.
