I went out a couple days ago and had five carp suck my fly into their mouth, only for me to pull it right out with absolutely no resistance at all! I usually get a little lip, or hook up. Was it my hook, hook set too fast...? Also, for the entire day I didn't see one tail-tipper, I fished til it was dark. There were a few (very few) sloshing in the shallows along the bank though. Could they still be in spawn? They were kinda cruising, one big one with either two or three smaller ones that followed the bigger one around. <- Are those the males chasing the females? Oh, and they didn't seem as easily spooked either, which I thought was odd. They had to be in spawn...didn't they? The only saving grace was, that I was finally continuously successful (if you can call it that) at getting "cruisers" to chase my fly. I can get a few now and then, but every one of the five takes, was on a cruiser.
