    Momotaro last pond pull of the year

    This is a pond not on the farm but by a road between the family restaurant and the Old Boy classic car showroom . There were 35 koi in the pond a lot being over 90cm but not their best fish but stunning to me . Enjoy photos
    Regards

    I love this. It is so Japanese to use every resource available. The rocks indicate it is not a typical pond in any way.

    Hello Eugene . . .

    Great pix. Thanks for sharing an interesting sidenote.

    Makes me wonder what the back story on that particular pond is?

    Thanks for sharing the pics...When Mr. Maeda smiles it just brings a sense of a successful harvest.

    You are right Mike . This is more a decarative pond between the Restourant and the classic car display . Therefore it is not netted and first time used . The pond is quite deep therefore difficult to drain and till in the spring . All the mud ponds are comletely netted and the banks protected by a form of fabric so that there is no danger of any erosion . They stay drained all winter and are then tilled in the spring . The fry ponds appear to be about 4 ft deep while the others are about 2 metre deep . I will better expain with some photos .
    Regards
    Eugene
