An­gling for a new so­lu­tion

The Courier & Advertiser (Fife Edition) - - COMMENT -

Sir, – As a res­i­dent of Rat­tray, I have been watch­ing the Ericht get to the dried-up state shown in your photo (The Courier, July 28).

And yet I pre­sume the lade fed from the croy at the bridge still has all the wa­ter that is miss­ing in the photo.

This is used by the fish farm some way down­stream. Can’t some other way be found to ex­tract Ericht wa­ter from the river and re­turn it close to the site of the fish farm?

I re­mem­ber one year when the fish were trapped close to the croy and car­ried in tanks for re­lease fur­ther up­stream, but there hasn’t been enough wa­ter even for that this year.

John Wil­son. Cas­tle Drive, Rat­tray.
