      Monty the fish wrangler

      Many thanks to Monty for his fish catchin' and transport service! We've sold our house and the new owners are delighted, excited and a bit apprehensive to owning a home with a koi pond. To help them be more successful I decided to rehome 3 of the 8 fish. My original design for the pond was 3,500 gallons for 5 adult koi. With only 5 fish the pond will be much easier to maintain; less koi, less food, less poop, less likely string algae outbreaks.

      So Monty brought over everything we needed to wrangle 'em, sock em, bag em and take them to the koi club. I was amazed at how easy and quick it went! With the proper net and technique, he guided the first fish to the surface, had me hold the net, guided it into the sock and then deposited it into the bag in the cooler. We had all three fish in the cooler in less than 5 minutes!

      Thanks again, Monty. That was really cool.
