    Hey Joe!
    Personally I spend too much time at the dealers. I don't think its as much the dealers as it is wanting to chat with other hobbiests about all kinds of things that are going on in the hobby. Its just a great thing to do!

      Only weirdos hangout at the dealers.... Just kidding, if we are talking in a week I probably beat both of you combined!!! Got to admit we are probably the only guys that can take the threads offline in person....But yeah, it's always cool to hangout, chill and laugh as always.

        After the last koi club meeting I called up Rob's place to see if I can get some more Manda Fu. Rob's wife answered and once hearing it was me -- handed the phone to Erwin!

        So of course I had to spend a couple of hours over there. Rob even brought up some tosai and we discussed the merits and prospects of each. Very educational for me.

          Not near enough, but you know exactly how much time I spend there, cause you are always there to.

          But I am planning to go up to OhSoKoi towards the end of this week and see how their spawning went this year, also need fireworks since they are illegal in my county

            You guys are in koi dealer heaven out there - I am sooooooooooooo jealous! We thought Akinosan & Aquitori worked at Champion Koi: netting & bowling fish, talking to customers, running in and out of "employees only" secret tents......took awhile before I realized they were just hardcore koistalkers. I don't like to go to one dealer in town anymore b/c fish are poorly housed and it pisses me off. The other place is right down the street from my house, so I visit them about once a week and hang around. But we don't have 1/100th the quality / quantity of fish around here to eyeball and enjoy. If I lived where you guys do, I'd be there every day - it's like Playboy mansions of koi everywhere!

              You wouldn't be impressed at all by the koi at the Playboy Mansion....trust me, I attached a pic of one I saw there and its one of the better ones (pretty nice place otherwise ).

              I used to spend time at my local Koi dealer but now I know better.

                Damn "Koi Stalkers", that's Akinosan. I am just "Koi Kichi" hahahaha...I probably hangout at Champion 3 or 4 times a week and Genki Koi about 2 times a week. The funny thing about hanging out at the dealers is I learn easier and faster since there are thousands of koi to look at. I have been dealing long enough they trust me when I want to look at something. Everything is hands on and your not trusting a pic to see things like "Luster", "Sashi", "Maki", and "Fukurin"...It's the things a book or a magazines can't cover...

                  I would spend lots of time at the local dealer if there were any good ones around here. Most of the dealers in the tampabay area(if you can call them that) focus on watergardens.

                  You guys and gals in cali don't realize how fortunate you are.

                    That can be good and bad, for having all the quality dealers in the Bay Area, and seemingly a lot of hobbiest there isn't a awful lot of shows, or things that involve Koi. The few that have taken place this year, I had to miss, but I will be at the Sac. show for sure.

                        Well there were no playmates to look at while I was there... Check my webpage under Koi Events if want to see more pictures of the place.

                          Cool! You have MUCH nicer fish than Hef......the Mystic Koifest looks like it was a blast. Your Goshiki is a pretty baby, I really like the 1st Ochiba as well. Thanks for the link - J

                            I spend way too much time at my local dealer. i hate to think of this holiday weekend. I have baby shiros to cull. While I've been gone nursing Jo Ann, others have tried to sit in and do the culling. From what they told me about going stir cracy, blind etc, i think my worth went up in stock! (lol) that'll learn em'!

                            When i first started, that's the way I was. Down to Golden pond to help out. down to the airport to pick up fish etc. Lots of other dealers and lots of other trips to the airport. It's a disease, kinda like gambling! But you either love it or you don't! ( you'll miss place a lot of money similar to gambling! )


                            you know the song, 1 little two little three little indians? I 've been singing it all night with the words slightly modified. I have 10 little "blueies" due in Wedneday
                            from cross country. Every time i drive by the airport the truck wants to pull in on cargo row! (LOL) One little, two little, three little blueies, 10 little blueies boys! ( if you can't carry a tune I have buckets I loan out! )
