cvs branching

I'm a subversion guy, but I'm stuck using cvs for a project. I am trying to create a branch but something isn't right. I can't checkout a branch I made.

I do a checkout: (CVSROOT is set)
cvs co modulename
Everything looks good, works great.

I create a branch
cd modulename
cvs tag -b branchname
Works good. Now switch to the branch.
cvs update -r branchname
I edit code and check in to this branch, works great.

Here is my problem, I can't check out the branch, only switch to it using update. This is a problem for CI tools like Hudson or Bamboo that do full branch checkouts.

cvs co -r branchname modulename 
cvs [server aborted]: no such tag branchname
Is there something I have done wrong in creating my branch that would prevent me from checking it out? Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
