Angling for a new solution
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.
