    Help from the U. K.

    We may be seeing history in the making. Dick Benbowd, a friend and well known (at least on this and other koi boards) poster may have found his asagi. Hard to believe huh? I also found one I want - a shiro utsuri. We are in the process of trying to purchase them from a dealer in the U.K. Haven't heard from them in a couple days, but thats understandable since it's the holiday season We have received pictures and was wondering if any of you chaps over there live fairly close to Clearwater Koi? Hoping someone could eyeball these two and confirm that they look as good as the photos. We are anxious to send our money, but because shipping costs are high we would welcome a second opinion. Thought it also may be fun for another koi kichi out there. We figured it worth a try. " Starting to feel alot like Christmas" Thanks!

    Dan,

    I'd love to help you out but Clearwater are up at York and it's a bit too far sorry.

    There are a few guys who post on KoiChat, like Judgey and Phil who are closer, but not on the doorstep, I'll mention this thread to them when I'm in contact.

    Dan,



    I'd love to go too, but I am down South and I hear there are perverts posing as Santa Claus around Andrews neck of the woods. So I'm staying put.

    I believe that Toddy is rather into Shiro Utsuri too.

    It sure it.
    The YKS web-site is worth a good look too.
    They keep it up to date with the UK goings on.
