Been Meaning to Ask

Flying from Amsterdam to Norwich England last month I noticed what seemed to be an endless rip on what I guess was the southern end of the North Sea. Does anybody have any insight as to what it was?

Just curious,
Fred A.

Fred, I never fished that area back in the U.K. but from the general location it could be caused by Thames estuary water combining with the tidal effects from the English Channel as the current flows North. There are some extensive sandbanks in the channel, Goodwin Sands and also Dogger Bank in the North Sea - once famous for it's herring fishery - sadly no longer.

Adrian,
Thats exactly what it looked like from the air, an extremely long sand bank. Bet it was Dogger bank.

Thanks and regards,
Fred A.
