So, what do you catch them on, Henry? Help the rest of us make it "less hard", too.
Barbed hooks rule!
My definition of work: Doing something in which effort exceeds gain.

I devised this technique fishing a neighborhood pond where locals would walk to the pond and throw bread in for the carp. I would walk to the pond, and scatter bread pieces onto the water, and wait for the carp to arrive. When the carp would come, giant mouths would come up and suck the pieces of bread underwater. I would cast my fly out into my spread of bread pieces, trying to predict where the carp would rise next. The fly was a simple brown spun deer hair fly sloppily clipped (this part came naturally to me) in the shape of a piece of bread.

shadow/movement, they only seem interested in weeds and mud.
I have seen guys try for them with very elaborate gear specifically for carp, never seen one caught there yet in ten years.
I need a 3/0 treble and a hand grenade!
I am no longer a screw up, I am an experienced screw up.

for about 3 seconds I had a 3 ft + grass carp on today (unintentionally and most likely foul hooked)
I will catch that thing one of these days, it looked like a nuclear submarine!!!
it pulled like one too!!!
Been there. Caught a 42" last summer. Took 45 minutes and a friend in the water with a net to land it.
