On the weekend of 25th and 26th July the North East Koi Club (www.northeastkoiclub.co.uk) staged their 13th Koi Show in Newcastle, England.

Grand Champion was awarded to the Sanke below owned by Wayne ‘sid’ Taylor, a Koi bred by Momotaro Koi Farm and sourced, in part, by Mike Snaden of Yume Koi, and star of 3 Nishikigoi.TV DVD titles.

Wayne advised me that the Sanke had actually featured on one of our DVDs and, after a short investigation, sure enough she did, she appeared on ‘In Pursuit of Jumbo Koi’ as a nisai, having been grown at Yume Koi.  The images below are stills from the video.

Subsequently I received the image below from John and Ann de Leurs in Holland showing the Koi as a tosai when it was purchased at Momotaro Koi Farm.

We’ve produced a lot of stuff with Mike Snaden over the years, and this result is very much testimony to the things that Mike preaches, and that many of his customers’ now aspire to achieve.
