We have an ultrasonic cat scarer and some green plastc coated gardening wire strung around the pond, at a height of about 15". Attached to the wire are some old CD's dangling about 3" below. The wind rotates them and not only does it seem to keep the unwanted visitors away, but gives a great multi-coloured light show at night !!,
The two best times to go fishing are when it's raining and when it's not

We used to loose fish on a regular basis so as a last resort we strung some electrified wire round the pond. This seemed to work on till we came home one day to find the pond full of debris stirred up from the bottom, a great dint in the floating pond weed in the middle and not a sign of any fish. 3 days later the fish began to come out of hiding and the pond began to clear after having had to clean out the filters several times. Believe it or not we did not seem to have lost any fish. We now have the electrified wire strung across the pond and not lost any fish since. As an added bonus it seems to have kept the local cat population out of the garden also.
