WALKING across a parched paddock with a thick, hooped wire over one shoulder and a metal rod in one hand, southeast South Australian farmer Roger Fiebig says he has received the odd quizzical look from passers by in the past five decades.
The tools are just a couple in the arsenal of a dying breed - the water diviner.
The old water-finding practice of divining, or dowsing, is shrouded in mystique - it is known as water witching in the USA - and has its fair share of skeptics but also an equal share of staunch believers.
Such a shame that they are having trouble finding new dowsers in South Australia. However, the art seems to be doing pretty well in New South Wales.
Anyone fancy moving out to Oz to help out?
