No not really, carp are a lot of fun to catch. Today was pretty difficult fishing though. Had clouds and a lot of glare that made spotting fish pretty difficult. The fish we did see were very skittish, probably due to the low water levels. The carp were spooking off the rod, the line, the fly hitting the water, the fly its-self and probably their own shadow, or so it seemed. I started down sizing the fly and that appeared to help, but over all the fish were very skittish. I only landed 1 fish this morning. Overcoming the difficulties that the day brings is what makes fishing so rewarding. If it was easy it would be boring and the difficulties make you appreciate the days when everything lines up just right.
