Our final day has arrived. We start the day with glorious Israeli sunshine hopefully the weather stays.
Madan koi has some stunning fish on show it is not long till we start the the selecting.
Start of the picking!
What better way to start off than to start with these very intense yellow Hariwake. Such bright white and yellow contrast absolutely dripping in colour.
This bowl of Hariwake are fantastic. Such clean platinum white and great skin quality.
A koi not seen very much this year is the Utsuri mainly Shiro Utsuri.
Some great news here today as we manage to secure plenty Shiro Utsuri.
Blood red Kohaku
On the same tank we moved on to selecting the kohaku. Here you see a mix of Doitsu type and regular Scaled Kohaku. Beautiful bowl of koi coming to England.
Goromo the fallen grapes.
Often described as grape like colour the Goromo is a lovely site to see. This bunch of grapes is coming with us.
Some really nicely patterned Beni Kikokuryu.
Shusui and Asagi
Although we have purchased alot of shusui and Asagi at the previous farms we simply couldn't just leave these in the tank.
Rain stop play!!!
Just as we finished off in the first tank a huge storm rolled in from the sea bringing a deluge of rain.
Already wet we had no choice but to continue. Whilst the rain went on we moved to some of the smaller tanks inside the packing house.
In the small tanks the fish just keep coming. The quality seems to get better and better each time we move tanks.
Knock knock who is there?
A Tancho Goromo !! Yes you read this right we managed to get hold of the only Tancho Goromo and what a fine example it is.
Kohaku bowl number 2!
Anyone looking for high end Kohaku look no further Madankoi breed some unreal Kohaku both doitsu and regular scaled. Here you will also see a Doitsu Tancho Kohaku.
Continuing the selecting !
We continued the selection process with some slightly larger koi now . These koi measured upto 18"
Who let the Kage out its cage?
As we were casually picking away out popped the most beautiful Kage Showa Sanke.
From this tank we then moved along to some jumbo fish.
Time was pressing on a little bit so we move on over to select the jewels of the farm.
The shiro Utsuri decided to pose say cheese !!
A doitsu showa sanke
Goshiki measuring over 55cm.
A full bowl of 50 cm Kohaku :)
You want bigger ?
All the above koi came in at 60cm+. As we are sure you will agree they are incredible.
Wait theres more ....
Great way to end or trip. The Madan Koi fish were stunning as always . Thank you to Aviv and all the staff for the fantastic koi selected and prepared for our visit. All thats left is to get these fish back home. Keep checking our blog pages for updates on arrival abd when koi will be listed.
