    Richard dropped from the scene about 5 or 6 years ago. I seem to recall hearing there were economic issues during the Great Recession that interrupted his breeding program. You might try checking with the Central California Koi Society based in the Fresno area.

    That's too bad, really love his kohkuo, I acquired a couple of his koi back then. They were amazing bloodline, he is very gifted in the koi breeding business, I hope he has the passion and resources to do what he loved.

    Dick left the boards a little over a year ago. He retired 8 or so years ago and ending up downsizing. He no longer has a pond. He does still get called on to speak and advise at koi shows in his area. His focus is now on his bonsai and related interests.... They do not take up space.
