Dave, who's koi pond are you fishing in? I think in my 3rd pond, I still kept gold fish before I went to all koi. I decided to get all of the gold fish out by netting them with a seine. The fish didn't cooperate, so out with the size 20 hooks and something that looked like a pellet. Brought the chair out to the pond and caught and sold the Goldies off to a local pet shop. I do remember a partical koi that I hooked that was too fast for me to pull the hook away. Should have seen the strange looks that the neighbors gave me.

Glad you're still having fun my friend.
