Magazine articles

Hotspot article

2017

Many thanks to Bernie Woollands, for publishing my article in the South East Koi Club's e-zine 'Hotspot', in issue 105. And giving me permission to share this with you on my blog.

Here's a link to the whole e-zine:  Hotspot , issue 105

The article tells the story of how I ended up winning the Baby Champion award at the 2016 All England Koi Show with a koi that I bred in my back garden.  I also had the honour of the front cover photograph too - which shows a picture of my daughter helping me pack up at the end of a koi show.
