That's why I like Dan Frasier's new book, the Orvis Beginner's Guide to Carp Flies so much. It get's right to the meat of the issue, literally. The book is really straightforward. This is what carp eat. This is where you find it. These are flies that mimic that. Here's how you fish them. Just that simple. 101 patterns with recipes and rationale. In other words, all you need to focus on, bug-wise, to catch carp anywhere in America (and that, of course, is the beauty of carp… you can find them almost anywhere in America).
