After what was a very successful first day at Ganshmuel where late on before we left we managed to hand select High volumes of 7" Koi with a mixture of long fins and regular fin high quality in total we selected 1150 fish in 7" size on top of all the other larger fish we picked. Our trip to Dag Noy tofday is equally as exciting.
Todays trip on record is normally one of our best farms for high volumes of high quality koi. Today we are looking for some various varities which we probably will not find at any of the other farms . Dag Noy fish farm like most farms in Israel offer almost all varieties of koi in all sizes. Today we have been told that there are limited numbers of a rare variety we are looking for which the Farm has very kindly prepared specially for our visit. This is fantastic news for us and cant wait to see what they have insore for us.
The Doitsu Ochiba
Here is the first bowl of fish purchased . With there unusual autum leaves colours and patterns these fish are proving to be a very poular one amongst our customers. For the last few seasons Dag Noy have been perfecting the Doitsu strain. Not only are many of the Ochibas Doitsu they also have few with scales across the back which are of Gin Rin appearance. Also purchased in here are the Chocolate coloured Chagoi's.
The Lemon Hariwake
Another batch purchased, these very high quality Hariwakes are again a sign of how hard the farm has worked in developing some koi which prove to be very difficult to find else where . With there pale lemon colour splashed across the brilliant white skin these fish are a fine example of the perfect Hariwake.
High Quality Sanke
Our usual purchase from Dag Noy are the High Quality Sankes with large amounts being Doitsu. We almost take it for granted each year as the farm manage to produce such high quality Sankes year after year. These are some of the many bowls of Sankes we purchased.
Another fine example in the amazing koi we got to pick through . The Utsuri's here we have picked up Ki, Kinki, Hi and Shiro Utsuri all stunning in there own right. The biggest stand out fish were the Kinki and Ki Utsuris like the video above. With there very striking colour and patterns these fish just seemed to glow amongst the other koi.
Showa Sanke Doitsu And Kohaku's
With Doitsu Showa still a little thin on the ground across the farms this Doitsu Kindai Showa was a welcome sight. With huge potential to become a cracking showa lovely Hi and Beni against a almost pure white skin.
