Yet again another fantastic day of weather. First thing this morning we set off for a pre visit to Madan Koi.
Walking in to Madan Koi facility we stop and watch the magnificent King Fisher in action.
The pre visit is almost as important as the actual selecting of the koi. We get to view all the high quality fish that have been prepared for us and take notes of the fish before start at Dag Noy.
After a couple of hours of viewing the koi they have prepared for us, its clear to see how amazing these fish truely are. Some of the Kohakus we will be buying are out of this world.
As time is against us we reluctantly stop staring at the beautiful fish and move on to our next place where we will select some fancy goldfish.
This huge indoor facility is one of many buildings this farm use for the production of there fancy goldfish.
We get straight to work and in no time at all select over 100 various high grade Orandas.
This started our morning off quite nicely. We then jumped into the car and made our way to Dag Noy. On route to Madan we pass some really picturesque views
On arrival we are greeted by one of the most dedicated workers on the farm
We then start to view some of the tanks to decide where we start our buying below is just one of the 12 tanks prepared for us to select from.
After an intense look at all the tanks we make a start. To make things easier for us to keep track we select by varieties.
Wasting no time we select a very large number of very high quality koi. Below are some examples.
The quality of fish was something else. The farm really has pulled out all the stops for us.
We have some truely mesmorising fish . This year we will be introducing a new section to the webpage featuring our SPECIAL KOI which were previously only available in our store. Here are a few examples to wet the appetite.
With some many koi it was time for a break.
After lunch its straight back to buisness,with this stunning Kin Kikokuryu.
One of the mpst desirable fish in the koi are the unusual Doitsu fish with the beautiful scalation down there spine.
We finish off with a couple very nice koi.
This concluded our january 2020 visit to Dag Noy. We look forward to many more exciting trips in the years to come. Im not sure they will ever be quite the same as this trip was the last one where we have had the privilege to work with our good friend Etan. After more than 30 years in the koi industry he is retiring from his role. We have been fortunate to work with Etan throughout his career. A special thank you to Etan for all the wonderful koi, laughter and hospitality. Many thanks and good luck with the future.
