    I sure wish I was a Close Personal Friend of Yours .

    I have heard from alot of people lately that Male Koi try to climb out / Jump more then females ? This one sure looks like a climber .

    Any other Info : Breeder , Size , etc. ?

    about 10-10 1/2 inches, bred by Toshio Sakai

    I tend to like koi that have a strong will, as opposed to a weak milk toast type....give me attitude!

    But Dick, aren't those the jumpers that have a short life span? Pretty much like a human that enjoys jumping out of buildings, airplanes...

    glad to see your wearing something to protect your eyes Russ, the sheen off the silky skin is kinda bright

    Sorry mate, I'm not the photographer you are Mark.....

    Flounder...it's ok to bail, as long as you have a parachute!
