Hey guys,
I've been exploring out at Cachuma the past few days and finally managed to locate a little cove that is just packed with carp. The fish (20-30 of them) have been in nearly the exact same spot each day. The problem is... I can spot them very easily from up on the hill/trail, but once I make my way down towards the bank I lose all sight of the fish. With so many fish around, blind casting isn't the worst in the world, but I just know I'm casting right over the top of fish and spooking them.  
This video, http://www.theanglersnet.com/Fly-Fishing-Videos/play_video.asp?section=1&VID =102 , gave me some inspiration... anyone up for some "flats" carp fishing?

Hey Ward,
I've been fishing for carp like that for a long time. It really helps to see the reaction to a fly as well as the take in catching carp; having another set of eyes is a big help. Here's a picture of Guy Jeans casting to some carp as I "spot" from the hill behind him. This picture was taken on the Santa Ynez this last spring.

Notice the "pod" of large carp. I hooked three that day, landed zero.
Are you coming to the meeting next week?
