It's another beautiful day today temperatures already in the 30's and its only early in the morning. Firstly we travel to Madan koi for a pre visit to find out what koi they have prepared
There are so many tanks of koi on show we have very carefully viewed the tanks and taken notes on particular koi we will make sure we secure.
The fish are stunning
After visiting Madan we head out to Gan Shmuel fish farm for a pre visit. This farm produce some excellent koi And also stunning Butterfly koi. We are greeted by there gaurd dog.
There is plenty of koi on show and as always the quality is excellent. There is going to be some tough decisions made on our visit back here. Now we are on route to Dag Noy. On the borders of Jordan this farm has so of the most fantastic scenery looking onto the hills of the neighbouring country.
As well as hosting a huge koi facilty in this valley it is also very famous for many other wildlife. With lots of produce being grown in this area it is not short on food for the flocks of birds present.
We are greeted to a tremendous wave of heat as we step out of the car with temperatures well into the 40's. Climbing into the ponds can't happen soon enough
With lots of koi on show here we decided to select in varieties to make sure we didn't miss any koi.
Some fantastic Platinum Ogon and also some very bright kujaku purchased.
We then moved to the Matsuba and kikokuryu tank this is going to be a tough selection . Too many srunning koi .
Some very high quality koi we picked in this tank . The clean bright skin matched with the unique zip like scales running down there back.
Goromo's a plenty. Usually a difficult fish to find in this quality these fish went straight in to our floating bowl.
As you can also see we managed to secure the Hi utsuri as well as Kinki Utsuri,shusui and Asagi.
It is impossible to visit this farm and not take there Gin Rin Sanke and kohaku. The lust and strength of the colours are something not found any where else.
Its only fitting we toast to a succesful trip here today . Tomorrow sees us travel back to Gan Shmuel and Nadan Koi to do the Selecting there.
