Congratulations to Andy Baker at he 2014 Winter Show

Andy Baker won the following three awards with a Sakai Fish Farm Sanke purchased from us in 2012:
1st in size 6 Sanke, 2nd in all varieties , Best in Variety (So best Sanke at Show)
Andy was keen to point out the folloiwing " At only 67cm I nearly didn't take her as you would think she would be up against it, when being compared with say 73/74cm Sanke's etc and size 6 all varieties was a pretty hotly contested size, ( wouldn't be surprised if there wasn't 15 / 20 size 6 fish at the show) but her quality really shone through. I know you love to sell the more expensive fish, but I'm sure it wouldn't do business any harm to promote the fact that fish under a grand can play with the big boys. Hopefully she will continue to grow and improve, as I will be showing at all the major shows this year including the Nation, so hopefully we can nick a major prize with her, later on in the year :-)"
So a massive well done to Andy from all at Koi Water Barn.
