    wish Blue water koi would do something like that in Washington state! Rod is affiliated with the head judge. Where's "scottie' and his magic beam when you need him. Sure wish i could be beamed up for an afternoon!

    If anyone is covering it photographically for KB pls don't forget to take a few pics of koi they find with the color blue firmly attached!

              I learn my koi thing from the guy on the right who in turn learned his koi stuff from the guy on the left...How great this hobby is to share such knowledge.

                It takes real koi kichi to do this!

                That guy one the left goes everywhere koi is!

                  OK , let me be the jerk. Once the sting is gone however, you can put some things into perspective.

                  Never touch koi when you have jewelry on! This means, rings, watches and gold bracelets! One quick move while measuring fish will result in a lost scale or an aeromonas ulcer site when the fish gets home. This is fundamental etiquette for all experienced handlers. A word to the wise—

                  Ito San is a lovely guy and quite knowledgeable. Has any one visited his place? The family business is to buy koi from koi breeders and grow them out. It takes a sharp eye to pick out others Nisai and grow them out in the limited area the Ito’s have. He does produce a limited number of his own fish ( mostly non gosanke) but less and less as the years go by. I remember when I visited him in 1992 and 1994, a certain pacific northwest dealer tried to convince me that Ito should not be on the same panel at the 1995 AKCA seminar with his supplier, SyunYoshida, as he was great breeder and the other guy was an unknown zero! Kinda made me laugh– these dealers and their infighting- - - - at any rate, we had them together and it came off OK. The business will always promote its interests, the teaching lessons are ancillary. Please do not forget that, or you are destine to follow ‘ false gods’. Trust me, these things always become clear in hind sight.

                    JR,
                    I remember the AKCA tape that was made from that seminar, Whenever i need a laugh I go and get it out and fast forward to the part where they are talking about tategoi and how a certain koi will turn out. The punch line I like the best is where that certain un named individual translated from japanese to english
                    " Just a minute and i'll go ask God"! Still makes me chuckle.

                      Morning Dick. You know I really like the civil tone of this board and I feel slightly bad sometimes introducing some cynical comments in a field of innocents! On the other hand, I want all beginners and intermediate hobbyists to have a pleasant , positive koi keeping experience and avoid those ugly detours in our hobby- you know the ones I’m talking about!

                      So my apologies to the readership if they only get the feeling I’m being a downer when it comes to certain issues. Its just that ‘been there, done that’ keeps creeping in when I see/read certain dynamics setting up in other regions of the country. This is great hobby- keep it real.

                      On another subject Dick, I finally set my maple bonsai free last weekend! Yep, out of the pots and into the Japanese garden that borders the woods on my property! Just could keep up and hated the idea that almost killed a $1800, 20 plus year old maple this winter. They look great and if possible– I think they look happier! I almost wish I had a copy of the CD " born free" to play, while I transplanted them into that spacious hole in the ground! LOL

                          I guess that's why I hate handling other peoples fish, but now I know...JR thanks for pointing that out, I usually dont wear jewelry when handling my fish or any other person's fish...In that case I completely forgot...I need to brush up on my koi handling skills... I think Joe can help me out on that...

                            Shot, I feel the same applies to judges, be it AKCA or ZNA...Alot of infighting, who's better...who knows more...ego man, about ego in most cases...I think the "False Gods" term applies here too...
