I really wish I could remember what I told Marlon and Yuki that got me these looks but I can't.Takahashi is in the picture too but we just finished picking and he was setting up a basket to hold the fish after pictures. It could be I was reminding Yuki of what happened to my camera last visit.

The pond we decided to seine had Doitsu Tosai. It was a nix of Doitsu Showa, Doitsu Kohaku, Doitsu Sanke and Beni Kumonryu for the most part. I found one really "unusual Tosai" that I had to pick up.

We had walked through two greenhouses full of Tosai, before deciding which to pick from, and Takahashi mentioned that he was keeping Tategoi Tosai in each of the ponds. He wanted us to know because, depending on what I picked, he might want them back. I picked 70 Tosai from the pond and 10 were removed as Tatgeoi.
I did ask for pricing, and was given it, but decided to only get one of them. It was this Doitsu Showa. The video isn't great, and has a couple of glitches, but it gives you and idea.

We also went to Murata Koi Farm today as it is about a mile from Takahashi. We picked up a lot of nice Tosai Kohaku at a great price and Marlon got to meet another breeder on his wish list.

Today was a very long day and it is now 1:00am, and I just finished sorting and numbering pictures, so I won't be posting much more. We did go to three breeders today.

We started with Tanaka and the last time I visited him was also three years ago. I still have one of his Koi left from that trip. It is a Doitsu Budo Goromo. He is quite far out, not far from Sekiguchi, so with all the snow we had we had to leave early. The raids looked good, as the highway had closed, but the we eventually ended up behind some snow plows that were going very slow.

Tanaka is fairly small but has a nice mix of Koi.

I always appreciate when breeders let me hand select, especially when it is difficult for them to net the Koi.

Tanaka has an unusual technique but it seems to work for him. I picked up some Hariwake, Kin Showa, Yuki Asagi, Kin Shiro Utsuri, Asagi, a Doitsu Beni Goi and what seems to be a Kage Hi Utsuri.
