Default Fly ID Book

Hi! I'm brand new to the forum but after looking around for a few minutes I decided to register...what a cool resource

After several years away from fly-fishing I am getting back into the sport. In an effort to streamline my education I was wondering if a certain type of book exists or not: I am looking for a book that IDs common flies and the insects they represent side by side. I don't want to tie them, so I don't need a tying guide, but I find myself seeing flies and not being able to ID them. Likewise I'd like to be able to pick a good fly for a bug I pick up on the stream.

Does anything like this exist?

Thanks!
