    Hi Mike – my uncle had koi in his garden pond … my aunt was very tiny and got in there in her fishing gear to clean things up and out … she was up to armpit high! Must have been a sight to see! My uncle and I stayed on the edge and made sure the guzzlers were fed – I hope they’ve survived the new owners.

    Cheers Hilary

      The only places we’ve seen koi has been in public ponds or pools such as this one at Garvan Woodland Gardens. Certainly interesting and colorful!
