    Koi Apprentice from Carlisle

    Hi all Koi enthusiasts. I'm Paul from Carlisle, (hopefully not to cold up here in the north for keeping Koi!) Hopefully by the end of June I will be starting out my new pond design. I'm hoping to pick a few brains on this forum along the way but for now just saying hello to you all.

    Thanks
    Paul

    Hi Paul
    I am still a first year apprentice . You will get a lot of good advice on here. Most if not all the pond build mistakes that have been made and will be made have been discussed on here. There is a lot of knowledge to be gleaned. All the best.
    Steve.

    Hi Steve, thanks for replying to my post, so far everyone on here has been great. I suppose we all enjoy our hobby and appreciate peoples struggles with pond builds, water treatment, disease of Koi etc etc regarding keeping them. Thanks again Steve, Paul

    Hi Carlo, yes I do know Mike and as you say he knows an awful lot about Koi and Koi keeping. I'm currently waiting for Mike to get back in touch with me regarding my new Pond build so fingers crossed all goes as planned. Thanks Carlo.

    Hi John, thanks for replying to my post, I definitely will have plenty of questions to ask! Excuse the pun but I'm like a fish out of water when it comes to Koi keeping but I'm a quick learner and once I get "Hooked" on something I won't easily let go! Thanks John

    I'll second this. Never been there but bought from him before and he was so helpful and friendly, really impressed.

    Mike's set up is great. Love what he's doing and often call him up or go and see him. You won't go wrong there mate. If you go see him, take some tissues with you so you can wipe the dog slurp off ya face!!

    Cheers
