Herewith a few of Collin Hunt's fish that he bought from me. More to follow.

Still pursuading him to enter the Western Cape Koi show, 2010. I believe he will walk away with a quite a few prices.

For a new hobbyist, not too shabby. What do you think?

Die kwaliteit lyk baie goed, hulle is net so bietjie aan die maaar kant maar hul sal vinning dik gevoer word. Defnetief so paar wenners daar.

Ek self soek 'n goeie, baie goeie wagoi ginrin goshiki tosai. - Hou maar 'n oog oop vir my asb.

Very nice selection for a beginner - good variety too. Keep us posted on their development. I'd like to see some good quality tosai supplied by the local dealers go beyond the 70cm mark while maintaining their quality. I'm working on a few Gin ochibas I got from Paul and would like to see If I can get one of them to go over 70cm in the next 2 years. I got 3 and it seems that two will make it to my big pond this summer.

Hi,

Very good pond fish, but IMHO not Champion quality!

Yes Neville, I must say it suprised me too, really did not expect all these awards and yes you are right I have already spent so much and it is so difficult to stop yourself.

I have to thank my friend Paul Viljoen for selling me such great fish and for all his assistance and thank you Paul for convincing me to show my fish and your help with catching, baging and transport to the show. Thanks Paul.

Yes Paul well done getting Colin to partake.

If a winner is only as good as its opponents well then it must win.

Fish that don't go to the show cannot win.

Well done again
