Day 17 of the 'Elvis ADVENTure' competition

DSC_0596
Today Elvis is off fishing, whether it's buying a rod for the kids to run around the rock pools on the beaches around Porthcawl or going out to sea, there's something for everyone. Thanks to the rolling sea nearby there's every chance the fish will be catchin' on fast.
For a huge selection of tackles, rods, reels and everything else you could possibly need to get fishing, visit Ewenny Angling.
Did you spot the hidden Elvis song title? Click here to enter our competition and win one night's stay & afternoon tea at Coed-y-Mwstwr Hotel AND £100 of shopping vouchers at Bridgend Designer Outlet!

Fishing in Porthcawl

Love this pic, sums up 'off the beaten track in Wales' for sure. Porthcawl is a popular resort at the best of times but there's always a quiet spot away from the crowds. And this is it. Fishing at Sker Point. Bliss.
