    I think a good hobbist/breeder is one who is willing to take the time to teach those, like me, who may not have their experience/knowledge.

    No such thing as a "Good Hobbyist". A hobbyist is one who does the hobby for what they want out of it and not to what others think. JMHO

    I think Dick Benbow (and some others) hit on it

    The good hobbyists I know, are gracious, outgoing, willing to share, passionate about learning, and driven with the japanese concept of "kaisen", the daily striving for improvement. Kinda sounds like a cross section of KB folks!!!!!
    Its one things to be a "good koikeeper." Being a good koikeeper does not make one a good hobbyist. I think Dick's definition hits the nail on the head with perhaps the addition of "passion to share/teach," as well.

    A good hobby is a therapeutic, calming, fulfilling hobby that can be a wild blurred obsession.
