Fished green banks yesterday afternoon. nice conditions, sunny, cold and a low tide so no run through. Used small ragworm that was left over from friday night.

not a bite. there were approx 8 fishing as I could see and nothing was caught. I left half an hour after high.

green banks is part of the loughor estuary. go towards gowerton from m4 and follow signs to loughor. go over the bridge and through the next roundabout. approx 200 yds there's a layby. park here, cross the railway bridge and walk the muddy/marshy field to reach green banks. fishing is best on a low tide as the pull on the water is too strong otherwise and you wont hold bottom. Waders are essential as it is quite muddy. ( firm but muddy!! )

baits - maddies or small rag on size 1/0 or 4 hooks. flounder is main species, but you tend to get a few small bass, eels and mullet in the summer.

dont fish after heavy rain as it spoils the fishing like every estuary
