Whilst in lockdown earlier this year to past the weekends away I decided to build a pond for the misses who's always wanted one in the garden. Although I had no issue in creating one, I really wasn't in the mood for an archeological dig so it will be a raised one for fish not Kio due to eating everything in it LOL.

The measure! ;)

Thanks everyone. I was lucky to have nice weather at the time as well, although working from home I took a couple days off leave to finish off. But nice to chill out and listen to the water now and again..

Nice one mate. Done a good job there lol.
That's how I started 28 years ago. With a hole in the ground. And a liner. Then the bug. Really got hold of me. Enjoy the pond and fish mate. Now I am retired it is a great hobby. Fish keeping. Or should I say.
Water keeper.
Love it.
