Hi Tuck,
Whenever I teach fly tying classes, the first fly I teach is the San Juan Worm. What that teaches is thread control and whip finishing.

The next fly that I teach is the Woolly Bugger. That will teach the basic foundation of tying.

From there you can branch off to other flies. The next two flies that I teach are the Pheasant Tail and the Hare's Ear Nymph. After these two nymphs, you should be able to tie any nymph.

My favorite nymph book is Tying Nymphs by Randall Kaufmann.
