I hear great things about that book but I have gained most of my information from boards like this and a few good on-line sites.

Last year I fished at least 100 days specifically for carp on the fly. I am a true addict! The main goal this spring was to move back my 'first blood' (first release?) date and managed to do so by a couple of weeks.

I have scouted intensely for prime spots in my neighborhood and on my way home from work. You would be amazed at how much great carp water is out there. I have a series of 4 or 5 choices on my way home where I can stop, look for fish and then either grab the rod or hop in and drive to the next spot. My wife never even knows! I am having an affair with carp. lol

What part of the country do you live in?

Favorite flies?
