    Visit to Cascade Koi , Bury

    Yesterday , I had a trip to Cascade Koi and Aquatics in Bury .

    Now I know Israeli koi are not everyone`s cup of tea , but for those of us who like a bit of value for money , then I`d recommend the place as well worth a visit .

    They`ve just returned from a hand-picking trip and have lots of new stock . I have to say , the quality of the fish was absolutely fantastic . The Sanke`s in particular were of a very high standard , one of which I`ve reserved for myself .

    The prices ranged from around £150 - £300 for fish in the 14 - 18 inch bracket . I reckon to find better quality , you`d be looking at spending sums into 4 figures on Japanese fish .

    Nice , friendly staff also , not too pushy , but there if you needed anything .

    Like I say , Israeli koi aren't for everyone , and I`m not looking to start a heated debate on the subject , but if you`ve got a couple of hundred pounds burning a hole in your pocket , give them a go !

    Yes , John , they did , but I didn't have look , as I was a bit pushed for time . I`m sure they`ll be good , if the standard of the other fish is anything to go by .

    Theres also the Koi Pool in Singleton (nr Blackpool) which is fairly close , if your planning a trip . They do a lot of smaller koi . Generally speaking I`d say the quality at Cascade is superior ,this year , but they're always worth a look at this time of year . if your close by !

    Same here , Fred - most of my koi are from them and I`ve been very happy with them , but I have to say , the fish at Cascade are a different level , this year (Think they do online , too )
