  • Eastern Nishikigoi Koi

    Since Ken pays for a link on this site, lets ask how many are going to the show he's putting on? The show is February 5th & 6th. Not only will it be a great show. Eastern Nishikigoi Koi has some great koi for sale. Check out some of his koi at www.enkoi.com

    Way to go Ken! I wish you the greatest of success with your show. Mr. Ogata had a very impressive presence at the All-Japan this year, and I was quite taken with a ginrin showa he bred that's owned by my acquaintance Mr. Kaneyama.

        Tom,

        I'm not sure if most folks realize it or not, but I also work a full time job of some 60 hours per week. With the little vacation that I'm entitled to, I've really got to pick and choose wisely so that I'm able to get the material I need for the magazine and also keep my family happy and on speaking terms with me.

        I think that Ken's show is more than newsworthy, and I'd love nothing more than a chance to meet and mingle with our many supporters from California, both pro and hobbyist alike. Hopefully with both the continued support of and also new support from koi professionals in the business, I'll be able to make Koi-Bito my exclusive endevour, and devote more time to getting around and meeting all the wonderful folks that make Koi-Bito possible.

          Boy would that be nice if this paided the bills someday. I hope that dream comes true for you.

          I do understand where you are right now. I'm in the same boat. Vacations are not something we take a lot of for one reason or another, and when we do, we need to use them for the family.

              Will make the 5 hour drive to see you if you ever do make it Brain.

              Aquitori with not having a day off in three weeks this will mean you have more money for koi when you go to Ken's place. I saw a few the other day that had your name on them.

              I have some plans for that weekend, but I told my wife they have to change, because the Eastern Nishikigoi Koi Show going to be one heck of a good show. To top it they will have 22 show tanks for people to show koi in. All these tanks are sold out as of now. This means lots of get koi for everyone to see. Some of the larger shows that I have been to, that have been around for years, don't even have 22 tanks at them. So if you can make it, it will be well worth it.

                I had not visited the Eastern site for quite a while. Some grand ones are pictured. Curious, though ... the one that grabbed me was a female Ochiba. I think it is the best looking Ochiba I've seen listed on any of the dealer sites since harvest.

                    It's tough for everyone. Shuffling work, family, and hobbies. It all takes time. But the hard work we put in just makes the rewards that much better . I'm sure we'll all meet up sooner or later.

                        MikeM, I was just at Eastern last weekend. I was shocked how many ochiba's he has in right now. I will bring my camera this weekend when I go back to pick up my new koi and get some pictures of the new ones. He had one I wanted last time I went out, but it sold why I was looking it it. :0( But my wife found one she liked, so we got it this last trip. I was also shocked to see a the nice chagoi's he has right now. It made me want another one, but we are to limited with the pond.

                          water temps in LA???

                          Hey Tom,

                          Could you give us an update on water temps there in So Cal. I was set to bring fish out to Ken's show, but after hearing the warm weather your having there, I'm having second thoughts. Too much stress if there's a big difference in water temp.
                          Thanks,

                          Erwin

                            The temp in my pond right now is 59.7 degrees. I'm guessing Ken's temp is about the same. If the wealth stays like it is day, it will come down a few degrees.

                            I got some bad news from my wife today. My daughter has State Cup for soccer that weekend. Right now I don't know if I'm going to be able to make it to the show. The State Cup is something I have to go to. I'm trying to find out the times of the games for Saturday and Sunday. If I can get away for a few hours I will come by.

                            What day is the Northern Cal group coming up?
