The origins of the Club can be traced back to the old Poole Speedway Club. In 1951 Members of the Poole Speedway Club who were interested in any type of fishing formed the original Poole & District Fishing Club. By the beginning of 1952, the coarse anglers and the sea anglers mutually decided to that their objectives were not entirely compatible and so the two factions decided to split and start their own clubs. The coarse anglers eventually became the Wimborne Angling Society and the sea anglers formed our own Club, the Poole Dolphins S.A.C.

In the early years membership was limited to 50 and all the fishing was confined to the Harbour & Poole Bay, but as more boats became available and transport easier, the fishing areas were extended to Southsea Pier and to Beer Head. Many a good match was fished in the Southsea Area against our old rivals the Gosport Club.

For many years one of the favourite fishing venues of the Club was the old dredging barge moored off of New Quay. This held up to 25 anglers and was used every Sunday from 10am through to 4pm catching Plaice and Flounders in great numbers.

Over the years the Club has run numerous Festivals in aid of various local charities , most notable being the R.N.L.I Open Boat Competition which we organised for over 17 years with an average of 30 charter boats per year. The Club also participated in and ran the Wessex Open for over 13 years.

Another great favourite of local anglers was the Clubs Annual Xmas Fayre which had been going for close on 30 years with entries varying from as low as 65 to as high as 467. Top prize for that year was a very smart £5000 boat and anglers came from far and wide to chance their luck.

We have participated in the formation of various local angling associations and we are leading members of the Poole and District Sea Angling Association and Wessex Region Angling Trust

The Committee sincerely hopes that you enjoy your membership of the Club and trust you will participate in as many Club events as possible.

Good fishing and tight lines!

 

 

The Club thanks the trustees of the pier for allowing us to fish all year round with about 20 odd matches, catches including all rays,bass,wrasse,conger,garfish, bream to name a few.
