Had a very long drive Sunday to Koi water Barn.

A massive thank you to Keith who sacrificed a fair amount of time to show me aroun the new building and QT facilities.

Some very impressive fish to suit all budgets!

you need to learn to cut your cloth and not try to run with those who have more money but not a better eye.start with younger and grow them,just because its the barn does not neccessarily mean its better.

It was a joke! You know I don’t spend big money. However, there is no harm in looking. Nobody knows it all, even though some may think they do. #Neverstoplearning.

I used to spend all my spare time driving around the country looking for koi.

Many of those early koi dealers, do not exist now sadly.

Memories fading but here's a few:-

Golborne Infiltration Was always brilliant looking in the big pond, and great auctions.

Harrow koi a long drive but always worth it.

Clearwater koi Leeds then York

Coldstream koi Yeadon Dennis is now at Shirley aquatics.

Haslingden koi

Birmingham a great guy who had an engineering company originally sold from home cannot remember his name.


Sure lots of members have many more memories of koi hunting.

Now I just shop local. Where I can always find a bargain and save on fuel.
